Zanzibar is a great place for shopping and bargain hunting. You will inevitably come across the odd ashtray carved out of a coconut shell but there are enough locally made art and craft to fill a whole suitcase with tasteful souvenirs! On this half-day tour, your guide will accompany you to local shops around town starting at the kanga bazaar where you can read proverbs printed on kanga cloth and also learn to wrap a kanga the traditional way. This will be followed by a visit to the leather sandal making workshop that has been supplying sandals to the island since 1976 after which you will move on to SASIK, one of the most successful women’s cooperatives in Zanzibar, to watch the women workers hand stitch and embroider elaborate cushion covers and wall hangings.

Nakupenda Beach Day Tour in Zanzibar
"I really recommend this full day trip out on the sea! We had a great guide called Juma and he was really very serviceminded, attentive and nice. First we went on a boattrip to Prison Island and we saw the great turtles and Juma guided us around the island. We then continued to Nakupenda Beach and snorkled there for a couple of hours. Juma and other guides prepared fresh fruits, water and seafood lunch for us with grilled shrimps, squid, octopus, lobster and langoustine together with french fries. It started to rain hard when we were about to have lunch and Juma and all the guides tried their hardest to make it comfortable for us even though it rained. We ended up having lunch in the boat with cover so we enjoyed the lunch very much. Soon, the rain ended and we could enjoy one more snorkling in the beautiful sea before we went back to Zanzibar Island. A great tour that includes everything!"..."

Zanzibar Airport Pickup
"From the moment I was picked up from the airport, I was treated with the utmost hospitality and kindness. After allowing me to drop off my luggage at my hotel, Sendekwa went above and beyond, even taking me to AND helping me set up an appointment and Mrembo Spa, and then showing me to an ATM. My driver Suleyman, was probably one of my favorite parts of Zanzibar. Super sweet, always punctual, respectful, and communicative, I am honestly so glad it was him that helped me get around Zanzibar for the entirety of my stay. He went out of his way for me too many times to detail. The car was always clean and smelled like lemongrass that is native on the archipelago. I would highly, highly recommend this company to anyone visiting Zanzibar."..."
