To get acquainted with Zanzibar’s people and authentic traditions, there is no better place nor better insight than an excursion to Muyuni village in the southern district of Zanzibar and an incursion into the lifestyle of its people.
Discover local culture, traditions and artisanship as you interact with the villagers while they are at their skillful activities of mat and basket weaving, Makuti plating and rope making.
At the local Ngonga Cave, you will also get the opportunity to admire nature’s own artistry, chiseled and carved out by years of weathering into mesmerizing subterranean hallways, cavities and corridors.
