When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.

I Cannot say enough good things about ExploreZanzi. The team were professional , organized and very efficient. being locals themselves, their knowledge of the local area was invaluable.

From the moment i landed i was made to feel incredibly welcome and the team had organized a bespoke itinerary taking into account my interests and wants from the holiday.

They even went out of their way to arrange a tour of a woodcarving shop after i expressed interest in the beautiful Zanzi doors that are seen throughout stonetown.

The team went above and beyond to ensure i had the best possible time and they Definity achieved it.

I would not hesitate to use ExploreZanzi or recommend them if you want a complete and tailored experience taking in everything the island has to offer!
A huge thankyou from me !

I had the most incredible experience with ExploreZanzi on my recent trip to Zanzibar! From the moment I arrived on the island, I felt a sense of wonder, from the historic streets of Stone Town to the pristine Nakupenda beach.

The EZ team were not just informative but also incredibly passionate; Zanzibar’s culture and history really came alive through their guidance. The itinerary they crafted was a good balance of relaxation and exploration, allowing us to connect with the locals, savour traditional cuisine and soak in the breathtaking beauty of this Island.

Some personal highlights for me were meeting the 150 year old tortoises on Prison Island, the stunning sunset on Kae Beach and spotting TWO whales by chance on a boat trip to the gorgeous Mnemba Island!!

I returned home with a heart full of beautiful memories and I’m definitely ready to embrace the Hakuna Matata mindset. It's clear to see ExploreZanzi’s dedication to creating soul-enriching journeys. Thank you for a truly magical experience! ♥️

ExploreZanzi is not your typical tour guide company. They pride themselves on creating a transformative experience and I can honestly say, they lived up to the expectation. This was our first trip to Africa and the team created the perfect itinerary that fit the needs of our large group and factored our children in each excursion. From booking our flights for the Safari to organizing all the details for our transport from the airport, various villas and hotels in addition to capturing memorable footage we will remember forever, the team did not miss a beat! It was clear that they are very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. Not only were they always punctual, they went the extra mile to ensure we had an unforgettable experience. To be honest, by the time the trip was over, we felt like we were leaving our extended family behind. Abui, Zain and the rest of the ExploreZanzi team truly set the bar for our next adventure! Asante Sana!

I went on the 7 day experience with Explore Zanzi in September 2023 and it was the most adventurous experience of my life. It was truly wonderful to be in one of the most stunningly beautiful destinations I’ve ever been to. The beaches, the ocean, the food, the people, the culture, the tourist spots and the hidden gems of Zanzibar were showed to us over an epic 7 day itinerary hosted by Explore Zanzi.

I would never have been able to do as much as I did, or seen as much of Zanzibar as I was able to if it wasn’t for Explore Zanzi. It was only because of them and the whole action packed 7 day itinerary they planned to perfection and excecuted seamlessly.

I highly recommend Explore Zanzi and the whole team as it was because of them that we had such a soul enriching and life changing 7 days that were unforgettable and I will definitely be coming again and recommending them to my family and friends aswell.

Booked with the Explore Zanzi Team who from start to finish handled every aspect of the trip impeccably. They were on hand to answer any questions, deal with any issues and we had everything organised for our trip. We were picked up from the airport and taken to our first hotel where me met the rest of the group! Everything ran smoothly! The group were a fantastic bunch of individuals from every walk of life. We all bonded well and definitely made some friends for life!

The 7 days had been planned out for us meticulously and we enjoyed every minute, there were a few early starts but all in all it was fab! So many different things to see and do and taking part in a community project had to be my highlight! The excursions were planned and executed well and the food included was always delicious! We managed to experience not only traditional Zanzi living but also some luxury! I would highly recommend booking with Explore Zanzi if you are ever travelling to Zanzibar 🇹🇿 They will take care of your every need! Thank you Zeyn and Abui for a life changing experience! I will be back! 💚

These guys did an outstanding job at organising my entire stay in Zanzibar. From when I arrived at the airport, to when I left, the team made sure that I was taken care of.

I went on the 7-day experience and I cannot begin to describe how exciting the whole experience was. The trip was quite literally, life-changing.

I have quite literally fallen in love with Zanzibar, from the delicious food, to the beautiful sunsets that I witnessed every single day.

I also went on the optional Safari experience at the Mikumi National Park, where I took a private flight to mainland. Seeing animals such as Giraffes and Lions up close for the very first time is something I will treasure for the rest of my life!

I highly recommend ExploreZanzi for anyone thinking of travelling to zanzibar!

5 stars is not enough for the ExploreZanzi team! From planning the trip, to details on the ground, everything was perfect.

Zain was extremely communicative and helpful with planning the trip, giving us ideas and making our dream trip possible. Abui introduced himself to us when we arrived to Zanzi, making us feel safe and ensuring we had someone to contact if we ever needed it. The guides that work with ExploreZanzi are excellent. Not only are they informative and organised, but they are charismatic and fun. As a group of 4 women, safety was important to us, and we always felt safe with the guides. We always had someone with us if we needed it and transport was organised for every journey, allowing us to fully switch off and relax.

As beautiful as Zanzibar is, the highlight of the trip for us was the safari in Serengeti. Planning a safari can be daunting, but the team made it easy! We had the best 3 days with an incredible itinerary, outstanding guide Peter, and comfortable, clean accommodation. If you book with ExploreZanzi, I’d highly recommend adding on a safari, as I doubt you’d get as seamless an experience elsewhere!

We hope to visit the beautiful country again with the fabulous team. Thank you ExploreZanzi!

Abui and his team on the ground really looked after us. From the moment we landed to the moment we daparted, every detail was organised intricately. A bespoke package tailored to our needs and requests. Privacy for myself and my wife during the excursions and various activities. The package included a range of activities land, sea, history, agriculture and much much more! A team that’s kind, caring, respectful and very accommodating. Prompt, well organised and very efficient. I would love to visit again. Zanzibar is esquisite with stunning views, amazing beaches and picturesque sunsets! Explore Zanzi caters for all!

My wife and I booked with ExploreZanzi for our Zanzibar trip following a safari experience in Tanzania. We were so glad we did! They worked with us to create a custom itinerary for the week booking all of our activies, hotels, drivers etc. It made our holiday stress free as we didn't have to worry about any of the logistics. They also provided a lot of insider tips to make our holiday go smoothly. We spent some time in Stone Town and Kendwa, it was the perfect balance having the trip split between the two locations.

We were there over Eid-ul-Adha and ExploreZanzi arranged for us to prayer Eid prayer at a beautiful mosque and facilitated us completing a local qurbani. We arrived late back at the hotel and missed breakfast but ExploreZanzi had already called ahead and they put out a special Eid breakfast spread just for me and my wife.

Overall they provided an amazing tailored trip filled with lots of memories, I have already started recommending them to friends and family.
