The word Safina is the Swahili word 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 centre of East, Central and some parts of sub- Saharan Africa. Safina Tours and Safaris Limited was created solely to cater for the broad interests of disserving clients, today, tomorrow and beyond. Safina came to fill in the gap for a competent multilingual destination management company (DMC) in Zanzibar. Safina is a 100% Zanzibari owned company with more than 20 years of experience in tourism sector.
Our knowledge in tourism industry, has increased our performance. We are one of the very few Zanzibari based company believing in sustainable tourism.
