Managing Director’s Message

Welcome to Zanzibar!

How quickly ten years has passed since Gallery Tours and Safaris started. Promoting this incredibly unique and beautiful island has always been an ambition of mine, and it’s my pleasure to do it through the highest quality service and products. We are dedicated to promoting Zanzibar in this light, just as I have done through publishing my numerous books on the beauty of Zanzibar and East Africa.
As with photography, I saw there was a lack of quality service on the archipelago of Zanzibar. It was the perfect opportunity to develop Gallery Tours and Safaris, where we would focus on improving the simplest of services such as hotel bookings, transfers and excursions. As a young company, we are fortunate to have enthusiastic and energetic staff, which are committed to delivering a cut above the rest. Attention to detail and a personal touch are important to us and our guides, drivers and reservation staff, all of which will go the extra mile to make your holiday special.
Gallery Tours has gone from strength to strength and now boasts a fleet of 28 vehicles ranging from 55 seater coaches, 20seater coasters, 7 seater Elegrands and Noahs. The Original Dhow Safaris has three dhows, all hand crafted in Nungwi, the heart of the dhow making community in Zanzibar. Further information on our Original Dhow Safaris can be obtained at
We continue to market abroad and have participated in numerous trade fairs such as World Travel Market, Fitur in Spain, ITB in Berlin, and Indaba in South Africa. If you are visiting any of these fairs, please contact me to make an appointment to meet and discuss our services.
As we celebrate ten years of touring, we have up graded, rebranded and we would like to this opportunity to thank our agents who have helped bring the company to where it is today.
I hope you enjoy exploring Zanzibar and all its beauty by land and sea. We shall ensure to provide you with an experience like no other on our romantic spice island.
Karibu Zanzibar!
