This article recommends to visit a wildlife sanctuary called โ€œCheetahโ€™s Rockโ€ which promotes petting of cheetahs and other wild animals. In my view, this is not โ€œeco friendlyโ€ so Iโ€™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
