The village houses some 6000 inhabitants whose everyday lives are closely connected to the tidal cycle of the Indian Ocean, which determines the pattern of activities in the village and on the beach. A common feature is to see the women attending to their seaweed farms on low tide, and the fishermen returning their dhows from the reef with the fresh catch of octopus and other species on high tide.
Visiting in Jambiani, the village on South east coast you will have this opportunity. This long, narrow coastal village hugs one of the island’s loveliest beaches, dotted with hotels and guesthouses. Three and a half miles long, this village has for some years featured a cultural tour that gives travelers an insight into the daily lives of locals, and some idea of their past and how their future might unfold.
