Swim in Cuza sweet water cave
When reaching the North of Jambiani you cross the main road into the farming area where you find Cuza Cave. 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. Cuza Cave is being used for spiritual activities but also it has a large swimmable sweet water reservoir.
Traditional lunch in coconut hut
After the refreshing swim you cycle back to Jambiani and visit Okalas restaurant. Okala´s grandmother 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, and locally harvested. Cooked and served in the restaurant, which is traditionally built with walls and ceilings of palm leaves.
