On Zanzibar Island:
Exploring Zanzibar by Foot, Motorbike or Jeep
Thumbnail description: Host Hisdory Jumane seems to be about the most friendly, flexible fellow in the world and he is offering to customize your experience on Zanzibar and show you things that only a local person can. If you want "deep cultural immersion" and maybe save some money, he can show you the sights by foot. If you want the full treatment he'll hire a jeep for you. But he seems to prefer the motorbike way, where you can see more and cool off between visits,too. Apparently a big attraction for Hisdory's tours is that if you want to you get to eat his mum's cooking!
A week on Chumbe Island & in an Eco-Bungalow
Thumbnail description: This week-long visit focuses on world-class snorkelling in what J.E.N. Veron, Chief Scientist of the Australian Institute of Marine Sciences, has called "one of the most spectacular coral gardens found anywhere on the world." Time is also set aside to explore a network of nature trails through the island's exotic "virgin coral rag forest," where trees arise from naked fossilised coral. You will study the island's intertidal zone, visit historical monuments, and be offered some very interesting optional day-tours, such as a visit to "The Endemic Red Colobus Monkeys in Jozani Forest," and "The Spice Gardens of Zanzibar." The lodging here constitutes an important part of the experience. You will stay in an "eco-bungalow" designed for extremely low impact in this official nature reserve. Your host will be native Tanzanian Omari Nyange. | REVIEW VISITOR FEEDBACK
On the Continent:
Thumbnail description: EarthFoot is proud to cooperate with the Tanzania Cultural Tourism program in providing visits to several traditional Tanzanian villages where the villagers themselves are trained to to show you local wildlife, village life, and other interesting aspects of their culture. Money generated from these visits is used to important local projects, such as buildiing schools, a "cattle dip" for controling cattle diseases, and similar projects. This revolutionary program is hosted by the Tanzanian Cultural Tourism Coordination Office.
