Zama Specials

Zama Tours & Safaris is not just a normal tour company in Zanzibar. We offer the normal tours and services as any other company on the island, but we also would like to give you a deeper insight in the island’s people, culture and history. Therefore we have developed some unique services with a personalized and private touch. Our love for Zanzibar, years of field experience, and listening very carefully to the wishes and feedback of our guests, have resulted in a selection of services we are truly proud of:

  • Our walking Stone Town tour is not only limited to the most famous monuments and streets, but also can include a look into daily life, by for example visiting halua and ubuyu makers (Zanzibari sweets) or having dinner in a private house
  • The popular half day trip to a spice plantation has a medical touch as our guide is a professional herbalist. He’ll tell you all about the healing properties of spices and fruits and has a true record in achieving his goals
  • Zama Tours’ aim is to support community projects. That’s why we use to combine our Jozani Forest trip with visits to a WWF supported butterfly farm project and the women’s cooperation in Pete, MOTO, weaving colourful baskets
  • The Uroa village tour gives you a realistic picture of village and fishing life at the coast
  • The Nyange sandbank excursion is private for our guests, avoiding the crowds and disturbance at the usual sandbanks
  • Freddy Mercury, famous son of Zanzibar. He lived only a short time on the island, but for rock fans it is absolutely interesting to put yourself in his footsteps
  • Many historical monuments are getting abandoned because of lack of government support. Mtoni Marine has developed some wonderful programs through which they try to raise funds for conservation of the Mtoni Palace Ruins. Zama Tours fully supports them with the Mtoni Palace Tour and Musical Evening
  • Finally, Zama Tours & Safaris is the island’s specialist in weddings. We can arrange a full wedding for you, including all the paperwork, hotel booking, food arrangements, decorations, traditional massage, photographer and unique touches which make the most important day of your life even more unforgettable!
