We welcome you to Zanzibar, the majestic spice islands of the Indian Ocean. Zanzibar has many islands but the main two are the islands of Unguja and Pemba and is officially still part of Tanzania. Non Zanzibaris people often know Unguja as Zanzibar. It embodies the spirit of “exotic”; an enticing mélange of Middle Eastern, Indian and Swahili culture and food, spice tours, and dhows pushed along by the trade winds. Explore the alleyways of UNESCO-listed Stone Town, then escape to a tranquil resort, framed by white sand and the deep blue of the Indian Ocean. Diving, kayaking and boat tours allow you to discover the weird and wonderful marine life up close. Culturally, many areas of the country have for a long time been meeting points of different cultures, giving the country an amazing cultural wealth. Fun fact; Freddie Mercury, of the band Queen, was born in Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Let’s Go Africa will make sure you will stay and work in a safe area and in our specific preparation meeting we will make you aware of all the do’s and don’ts. If you are up for the challenge, Let’s Go Zanzibar will take you to the place to be! Projects within professional organisations that provide community development work and quality supervision. The great hospitality and openness of the people and the various opportunities to spend your free time will make you want to come back even before you have left Zanzibar!
