Being a member of the board of the Zanzibar Tour Operators, my background into the tourism industry can be traced back from 1996 where I worked as a porter in one of the Zanzibar hotels. Also, I worked as a Tour guide for a number of companies in Zanzibar. Having a Master degree in political science from the University of Dar es salaam together with my long experience in tourism are what partly stimulated my ambition to establish a company in January,2006

In my journey as a tour guide, I left a record to be the first french speaking tour guide graduated in french related degrees in Zanzibar. I have left another record to be the first tour guide with the highest level of education in Zanzibar during my time. As a way of improving my understanding of tourism, I joined a Bachelor of Tourism Management and Marketing at the State University of Zanzibar in 2014. I have graduated with excellent results ( first class honor). Having completed my studies, I am now confident enough that combining both my experience and educational background, the company will have a better performance that leads to a greater satisfaction of our esteemed clients.
