Culture, Travel

The official languages of Zanzibar are Kiswahili and English. English is spoken by most of the islanders, and many have a working knowledge of Italian and Arabic. It’s useful for any traveler who wishes to venture outside urban areas to have a working knowledge of Swahili.

As tourism increases, many private schools and universities are beginning to incorporate foreign languages into their curriculums. Zanzibar Alliance Tours & Safaris encourages all team members to dedicate their language skills to teaching impoverished individuals who do not have access to private education.
