The Zanzibar International Explorer Program

Jubileeventures.org Zanzibar international explorer program combines the Zanzibar language and culture and the Adventure programs. We provide volunteers abroad and international interns with three days of Swahili study abroad sessions combined with local cultural tours; four days of guided island and beach tours; plus about two  days of voluntary community work in the African Island of Zanzibar.

Day 2: In-Country Orientation in the morning, Introduction to Zaznzibar culture, do's and dont's.

Afternoon: Stone Town Tour: Guided tour of the city of Zanzibar featuring the old town of Zanzibar, fondly known as Stone Town. The tour is covered mainly on foot, providing the guests the opportunity to stroll through the narrow winding labyrinth alleys and behold uniquely carved Arab doors with brass studs, carved balconies; the House of Wonders; the Palace Museum (People's Palace); Dr Livingstone's House; cathedrals and countless mosques; and Zanzibar's bustling market. Stone Town has excellent gifts shops with plenty of souvenirs handicrafts and splendid artifacts to choose from.

Day 3: Morning: 2-3 hours Swahili lessons. Afternoon: Take a local bus to the beach village of Jambiani in the East coast of Zanzibar where you will spend the remainder of the week. 

Day 4: Sunday: Free to relax, soak in the sun, walk on the most beautiful yet un-crowded beach; feel like Robinson Crusoe in your remote and extremely peaceful paradise Island. 

Day 5: Morning: 2-3 hours Swahili lessons. Afternoon: join the villagers to do see weed farming. Seaweed farming is a small local industry that gives work to hundreds of islanders. The weed was introduced in Zanzibar from the Philippines in 1988. The product is shipped to Europe, where it is used in medicines, cosmetics and in the preservation of foods and beers. Later on as time allows climb on coconut palms to harvest coconuts together with the locals.

Day 6: Morning: Swahili classes, 2-3 hours. Afternoon: Join local women in rope making and visit with a local herbal “doctor” to learn the art and science of herbal medicine.

Day 7: Morning: Program Evaluation, 30 minutes. Thereafter, join the local fishermen for a fishing expedition or jump on a dhow and sail in the calm waters of the Jambiani lagoon. Alternatively take a 2 hour hike to attraction, a large cave containing a fresh water spring thought to have once been used as a holding house for slaves. The cave is also a traditional shrine and some local people come here to pray and make offerings. Afternoon: Trip back to Zanzibar city.

Day 8-9: Introduction to the needy and orphaned children and local volunteer projects staff. International volunteers work with local children or other projects of their choice. Voluntary service in Zanzibar includes teaching English as a second language and playing games with the children, helping the children with homework, and games and sports. 

Day 10 - 12: Zanzibar, Pemba Adventures

The wetland is about 45 minutes drive from the city center. It is home to the only surviving members of the red Columbus monkey, an almost extinct species.

A local guide will show visitors to small colonies of these unusual primates. The guide will also show the international volunteers, the delightful swamp in the middle of the wetland and small streams flowing into the ocean. There are lots of mangrove trees, alive with birds of the wetland ecosystem.

Day 11: Dolphin Adventures, Swimming, Snorkeling: International volunteers and interns abroad will have a full day tour on locally constructed sailing dhows, fitted with outboard motors, marine VHF radios, life jackets and other security requirements.

High quality snorkeling gear is provided. Lunch is provided for free as part of this trip and is served on a sand bank or on one of the many uninhabited island in the region. A traditional dish of barbecued fish, rice, lentils and fish curry is served.

After lunch overseas interns and volunteers abroad in the African city of Zanzibar can sail on an outrigger canoe carved out of a single mango tree, snorkel, swim or just relax. Interns and volunteers return to Fumba by sail, wind permitting, or by boat, then to the main island.
