I'm visiting Zanzibar next month and would love some recommendation of places to visit / experiences to get involved with that create a positive impact!
Thank you in advance :)
Hi Sham, once you have been, it would be great if you could do a story for conservationmag.org I have followed you just dm me
You might possibly find some ideas here - ecofriendlytravels.com/wiki/Zanzibar
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.
Afraid I didn't read it all the way through - but good to know - thanks
Hi Sham, check this article at our platform Hidden Lemur: hiddenlemur.com/things-to-do-in-tanzania/#:~:text=Things%20to%20do%20in%20Zanzibar
thank you! great tips
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. www.tripadvisor.com/AttractionProductReview-g482884-d17809393-Jambiani_Village_Women_at_work_and_play-Zanzibar_Island_Zanzibar_Archipelago.html
This tour operator does a fairly good job. Not all tours are really ecofriendly in my opinion so choose accordingly :-D
A great island, beautiful beaches and interesting culture and history!
