This article recommends to visit a wildlife sanctuary called “Cheetah’s Rock” which promotes petting of cheetahs and other wild animals. In my view, this is not “eco friendly” so I’d be cautious about that particular advice.

Since sustainable in regards to Zanzibar, definetly means to include the local people, I have two ideas. The problem is, that a huge amount of the profit from tourism benefits Tanzanian mainland or Western companys as its the case with so many poorer countries.

This I really loved, because it supports a group of women directly and for too many people tourism is the only way to earn their living on Zanzibar.

This tour operator does a fairly good job. Not all tours are really ecofriendly in my opinion so choose accordingly :-D
