Sunset Dhow Cruise



The Real African romance

A dhow is a traditional sailing vessel with lateen sails and one or more masts.  It is used mostly in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean regions.

A sunset dhow cruise is a truly romantic African experience, combining all of the senses; you will see the beautiful Zanzibari scenery, listen to evocative taarab music, and enjoy the taste of the island’s typical cuisine – all whilst enjoying the views of the breathtaking sunset. 

One travel tip is to go on one of the luxurious dhow cruises offered by Vanora Zanzibar. This company offers a private sunset dinner cruise or a snorkeling day trip for honeymoon couples or families.
