What You Can Expect
Try some authentic Swahili cuisine and beer on your Zanzibar nightlife tour
After meeting your expert guide in the Heart of Stone Town, hop in your air-conditioned minivan and travel to your first stop of the evening: a local bar in the Heart of Stone Town. Order a Tusker, Kilimanjaro and Safari beer or one of the other deliciously refreshing local beers for a true Zanzibar experience. Tusker has been brewed in Africa since the 1920s and is an icon of Kenyan and East African society. Other drinks including wine, local juices and soft drinks such as tangawizi (local version of ginger beer) are also available. With your drink in hand, sit back, relax and observe local Zanzibar life.
Next, return to your minivan and enjoy a short ride to a local Zanzibar restaurant for dinner with another drink. Choose from a range of traditional Swahili food including nyama choma (barbequed meat) and mbuzi (goat) served with quintessential Zanzibar accompaniments such as spice rice and ugali (dough-like side dish) and kachumbari (tomato, onion and cilantro relish). The selection of traditional Swahili dishes also on the menu brings an exotic mix of African, Arabian and Indian flavors.
After dinner, head onto your final stop of the tour and enjoy a relaxing nightcap at a local bar. Take a seat with your small group and guide and enjoy your after-dinner drink as you chat with your guide about life in Zanzibar and discover the answers to any questions about the incredible city of Zanzibar.
End your evening back at the original departure point with your stomach full and your thirst for local beer and culture well and truly quenched.
