Meet the People of Jambiani Village


Welcome to Jambiani Village, which is situated on the southeast coast of Zanzibar Island, some 45 km from the main city Stone Town. The people's daily life here is closely connected to the tidal cycle of the Indian Ocean, which we would love to teach you about.

During our visit, you have the chance to immerse yourself in the local life of this village for a few hours. We will walk through the village and visit a seaweed farm that local women use to create income.

The people of Jambiani rely on the palm tree to meet most of their essential needs. Local women will demonstrate how to make rope from coconut husks to make local beach beds or combined them into larger ropes for anchors. On the way, you can also meet the nurses of the local nursery school and hospital.

Jambiani Village also has a local witch doctor, which you will have the chance to meet and maybe he will even tell you something interesting about your life! We will finish the visit with one of the yummiest lunches in the village!

About Me

Hi, my name is Lau. I am a born and bred Zanzibari who works as a tour guide and loves the Indian Ocean (swimming, snorkeling, name it!), football, and reggae. My mom taught me how to cook and fine-tuned those cooking skills through training in hotels. I would love to bring you in touch with the culture of my beautiful island and give back to my community. Come and join me in Zanzibar!
