The word “ SAFINA” is the Swahili for dhow. The wooden dhows have been used for a long time in the coastal waters of East Africa to trade all over the world, particularly when Zanzibar was the commercial center of East, central & sub Saharan Africa. Safina Tours & Safaris Limited was created solely to cater for the broad interest of deserving clients, today, tomorrow and beyond.

SAFINA aims to fill the existing gap for a competent multilingual Destination Management Company (DMC) in Zanzibar. SAFINA is a 100% Zanzibari Owned Company with more than twelve years of experience in tourism sector. With our competent and dedicated staffs, SAFINA has proved to local Tourism stake holders, and the world at large, to be the most competent, efficient, and reliable Multilingual Tour Operator in Zanzibar and Tanzania ever seen before.

Our long experience has enabled us to move a very significant pace in understanding of tourism of all levels. We pride our selves on designing our own tours and excursions, rather than follow traditional tourist trails. As a result our tours and excursions permit our clients to see historical and cultural sites that have never been explored by other Zanzibar Companies.

A very good relation we have with the Zanzibar hotels has not only enabled us to sell but more importantly to be the first Zanzibari Company offering the very competitive and attractive rates to its partners. Our main goal is internalization of our profound knowledge and experience of Zanzibar and Tanzania to all our beloved clients, and to serve customers of all budgets and nationalities, without the language barriers.
