We are Brenda Moot and Ire Apewe,
Brenda has been working and living in Tanzania and Zanzibar since 1995. Since 10 years we have the travel company called Brendafrica travels. When I am not traveling I live and work with Ire Apewe on Zanzibar or stay in The Netherlands. I like to enjoy the best of the two worlds I live in.
Ire, my partner, is a great personality, he likes showing you all the inns and outs of Zanzibar. He is a good advisor, cook, sailor, tour guide, driver, social worker; born and raised on Zanzibar and always cheerfull. His speciality is sailing with visitors around Zanzibar in 4-7 days
We have a big network in East Africa, feel free to ask advise for your stay on Zanzibar. We like to give you the real Zanzibar experience. You can observe life in Stone town from the balcony or just join street life. Drink your tea in the gardens with a view over the sea and meet the friendly Zanzibari. Hopefully we will meet as we like meeting people Welcome - karibuni
