At the village of Mchangani little has changed during the last centuries. Women still use dried palm leaves for weaving mats and thatching roofs. Enter a local house and see how women paint henna and collect water from a well.

A local will show and explain you how the coconut is essential for the villagers. You can participate and learn how to remove the husk and witness the grating process.

Guests will have a lunch break in Nungwi at a local restaurant to taste the Zanzibar cuisine. (Optional & paid directly).

In Nungwi you will witness how wooden dhows are built. Last stop is the “Mnarani natural aquarium”, a lagoon which server as a sanctuary for the endangered Green and Hawksbill Sea Turtles
