African Adventures Ally

I am a Trip Host for African Adventures here in Zanzibar. I was born on the Island but studied travel and tourism on the mainland in Dar es Salaam.

I enjoyed my studies very much but the city life was not for me, so I moved back to Stone Town in 2013 and am loving my career sharing my home with visitors from all corners of the world.

I most enjoy being able to show our volunteers both sides of Zanzibar – the natural beauty and the people. Most visitors come here to see the beaches and the all-inclusive resorts but our volunteers do not come here as tourists. They come here to really make a difference to some of the poorest children here. So, yes, they enjoy their time relaxing but they give more than they get and helping facilitate that gives me great pride.
