OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD; Because we are located in a traditional, Zanzibarian seaside village, Jambiani village, you can experience the "real Zanzibar" during your stay with us. Watch the local fishermen in their colourful outriggers, push out into the sea and return later with their catch! Follow the Zanzibarian children to their school and the women as they walk to harvest seaweed. Perhaps even better book a cultural village tour at the local eco+culture Zanzibar office.
Public transport can be used to travel to Zanzibar Stone Town. Alternatively our service staff can assist to rent transport in the village and a village taxi to nearby Paje, Makunduchi, Kizimkazi.
We support tourism directly benefitting the local people, and have been supporting the NGO eco+culture Zanzibar and tour operator eco+culture tours (featured in Lonely Planet).
