About us

We love this paradise island and its friendly people! We want to share our personal favorites – beaches, food, villages, restaurants, roof tops, shops etc. r so that your trip will be something extraordinary. With us, you get access to parts of the island that are unknown to the big travel agencies and booking engines. At the same cost as if you would book yourself.

With a focus on sustainable travel tourism in close cooperation with the Zanzibaris, we want to contribute to the island’s development. We employ Zanzibaris, use local products and services and share our knowledge for everyone’s benefit.

Our day tours
We work close to the community in sharing their island and we have developed several
tours offered only by lovezanzibar. Most of out tours start from Stone Town but we arrange pickup from anywhere on the island.

The team
lovezanzibar is a tight team working closely together. Guides, drivers, captains, the women in the village and all other do their outmost to share their island and give you an unforgettable experience.
