Spooks, spirits and ancient arts combine on this trip to the heart of Zanzibar culture. In Muyuni Village, you’ll quickly understand the importance of tradition to the locals. They’ll introduce you to the art of rope making, basket weaving and makuti plating. Get to know the community at the village school, then visit the mystical Ngonga Cave where you’ll see a witchcraft healing ceremony and explore the network of passages and tunnels with your guide. Along the way, you’ll discover the history of the cave as a home for vampire bats and the spirits of the Muyuni people’s ancestors.
This private full-day tour takes you also into the island’s only national park to walk along its nature trails and amongst some fascinating wildlife. You’ll arrive at the forest in Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park ready to step foot on territory that’s home to endangered red colobus monkeys, bushbabies, duikers, butterflies, and birds. And once you’ve got your eye trained on the treetops, you’ll be in for a chance of spotting these elusive creatures as you make tracks through the park.
