About us

Real Experiences- Genuine People

Our mission is that in everything we do, we do it together with the community. Many of our tours is developed by the locals- that’s why you find them nowhere else, and we try to spread the work to as many as possible. It is Zanzibaris that do the tours, cook the food, drive the cars, take you in their boats etc.  This is the best way to transfer knowledge to the island and we are very proud it is working out so well. And that our guests contribute to Zanzibar’s development, get real experiences and meet genuine people.

We share our secrets
We set a pride in sharing our personal, sometimes secret,  favorites – beaches, food, villages, restaurants, roof tops, shops etc.  to make your trip different.

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.

Our day tours
We work close to the community in sharing their island and we have developed several
tours offered only by lovezanzibar. We arrange pickup from anywhere on Zanzibar.
