Need a quickie intro to the city? Toss aside your guidebook and instead get the Zanzibar scoop straight from those who know it best: the locals who live here!
Join us for a casual meet-up in front of the Old Fort main entrance. From there, we’ll proceed to the Forodhani Gardens, a place where locals meet up in the evenings for coffee, food, and news.
You’ll get to see the Forodhani Gardens nighttime street market, and your local guide will help you find the best foods to try, at the best prices. Forodhani is full of Zanzibari delicacies, like Zanzibari pizza, urojo soup, mishikaki (freshly made chips with meat), shawarma, fruits, and sugar cane juice. It’s best to buy the food with a local by your side, in order to avoid the stands that aren’t serving the freshest food.
After choosing what to eat, we’ll sit down at a nearby café, order our drinks, and get deep into the local tips about Stone Town and Zanzibar.
Think of it as a meet-up and info desk all rolled into one — get the tips you need to know from those who are in-the-know, then kick back and relax with some new friends in a new city. There’s no better way to tap into local life in Zanzibar!
