Who We Are
Zanzibar Cycling Adventures began as Nungwi Cycling Adventures, created by a local guy called Makame Thani from Nungwi Village, with a great passion for cycling and a vision for cycling tours that offer tourists an eco-friendly opportunity to see inside Zanzibar.
The success of Nungwi Cycling Adventures meant that Makame needed to train and employ more tour guides to sustain the demand. This success also made Makame develop a new vision, offering tours in other locations around Unguja Island.
Our core principles:
All tours are eco-friendly
Employ and train local Zanzibari’s in an effort to combat unemployment issues
Ensure capital made from tours is spread fairly amongst all parties partaking within each tour, as an effort to combat poor local economy issues throughout the island
Offer customers fun and exciting tours whilst also providing them with an insight into some of Zanzibar’s history, culture and environment
