Jambiani VIllage

Jambiani village, swim in the sweet water cave and eat a tasty local meal at Okalas´
3 hours

After the bike fitting we bike stroll through Jambiani village to see how the daily life is lived in a Zanzibar village. Cows, ducks, students on lunch break, mosques…  All accompanied by the smiling kids greeting us. Along the way our guide will stop and show you what is going on, and to try some local snacks and fruit.

Swim in Cuza sweet water cave
When reaching the North of Jambiani we cross the main road into the farming
area where we find Cuza Cave. Cuza Cave is being used for spiritual activities. The villagers come here to pray and burn incense to call the spirits to them and influence them with
prayers and sacrifices if someone is sick, if they want to change things or just
get better luck.  The cave also it has a large swimable sweet water reservoir.

Traditional lunch in coconut hut
After the refreshing swim we stretch back to Jambiani and visit Okalas restaurant.
Okala´s grand mother taught him Zanzibar´s traditional cooking methods and he keeps the tradition alive in food courses and at his restaurant. Everything is cooked from scratch: glow-baked, hand-picked, locally harvested and traditionally. Cooked and served in the restaurant, which is traditionally built with walls and ceilings of palm leaves.
