The Swahili House

The Swahili House Zanzibar

The Swahili House first opened its doors in June 2009.  It is located in the bustling heart of Stone Town with traditional Swahili influences and authentic hospitality combined with modern day facilities.

The Swahili house was originally set up and used as an Indian merchant house in the 19th century.  In the 125 years that followed the building became a home to one of the many sultan families that inhabited Zanzibar.

Most of the hotel has been restored into its original state, which makes your stay at the Swahili house a real Zanzibari experience!

Aiming to be a high quality boutique hotel, it is the sister property to Fumba Beach Lodge and built to a similar standard.

Safari Destinations

Zanzibar Beach

Just like Tanzania, Zanzibar is three hours in the advance of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+3). It doesn't operate daylight saving time, and consequently there's no time difference between Zanzibar's summer and winter months.

Discover Uganda

Uganda is a truly “authentic” safari destination - definitely less sophisticated than Tanzania or Kenya in terms of infrastructure and not in the same “big game” league, but equally untouched and as genuine as Africa gets.
Uganda’s gorillas, chimps, birds and the wider range of special-interest attractions (from butterflies to orchids) makes it a perfect match for first timers and seasoned African visitors alike.

Visit Tanzania

Tanzania home to Africa's most dramatic and famous features.  Fantastic wildlife, stunning scenery and idyllic beaches Tanzania is virtually unrivalled in terms of wildlife population and diversity. From the biggest African plains, the Serengeti, to the highest African mountain, Mt Kilimanjaro, to the deepest African Lake Tanganyika.
Pemba offers classic tropical beaches to those wanting to get away from the crowds, whilst the Selous Game Reserve never disappoints those looking for lion and elephant!
