Business as unusual

We are proud to say that here at Kawa we do things differently. We care passionately about every aspect of this Swahili heartland. This means that our tours don’t just explore well known areas of interest, but also take you off the beaten track, and into the soul of the island. We make sure that with every step our tour guides take we move towards a better tomorrow. No matter the length of your stay, with Kawa Tours, you have the chance to make a difference to the future of the island.

Kawa Tours is NOT a Tour operator, it is a brand of tours developed by Kawa Training Centers teachers and students. We design original and sustainable tours that highlight Zanzibar’s cultural and natural heritage and daily life. We believe that Tourism can only be successful if local people benefit from it and that everybody works together to protect Zanzibar’s cultural and natural heritage.  The tours are operated by registered tour operators and freelance tour guides who work in partnership with Kawa, they benefit from the tours that we have designed and from the tour guides who have graduated from the tour guide course. They give a percentage of the tours’ profit to support Kawa Training Center. Kawa Training Center is a registered NGO that offers practical tour guide training to improve the level of tour guides and their chances to find employment and to promote sustainable practices within the tourism industry. By booking through this channel you support Kawa Training Center in its activities.
