SWAHILI CULTURE TOURS
There are many elements to Swahili culture – music and dance, visual arts, traditional games, cuisine, and dhow culture to name a few. A Cultural tour is a great way for visitors to immerse themselves in the local culture and to see how many Zanzibari’s live on a day to day basis.
On this half day tour, your guide will accompany you to a rural village where you will have the opportunity to see daily activities being undertaken – women weaving baskets, grinding millet, and cooking local dishes, using traditional methods. Watch as they decorate themselves with the traditional henna body painting, and braid hair.
Sit with the men of the village as they weave palm fronds to make the thatch roofs for their huts, or play a game of Bao, Zanzibar’s favorite pastime. The Cultural Tour is the ideal excursion for those who want a real insight into the people and life on the Island, and is a great way to support sustainable tourism and the people of Zanzibar.
