The Swahili coast evokes powerful images of silhouetted prawn fisherman dragging their nets before dawn; heavily laden wooden dhows racing home at last light, powered by white sails; Ruins of sultan palaces engulfed by overgrown lush forest. This land has drawn in countless explorers, merchants, and invaders through millennia, each leaving behind his legacy, adding to a fascinating tapestry of history, art, and culture.

From the Quirimbas Archipelago of northern Mozambique to the ancient community of Pangani in Northern Tanzania, the Swahili coast and Islands span more than 1300km of coastline. The region is intricately rich in treasures both of human and natural origins. It is famous for the white sand beaches, and aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean but just as interesting are a host of less known attractions such as national parks, tropical forests, and rich estuaries. It is the home to the intriguing and colorful Swahili people with their vibrant living culture. This fascinating tapestry of culture, nature, and scenic beauty attracts many of our guests.
