Can I get vegetarian food in Zanzibar?

The host families are familiar with participants who follow a vegetarian diet and can prepare dishes accordingly. Some restaurants in Zanzibar Town offer vegetarian meals. There is a wide variety of vegetables and fruits available at the market. Host families can also accommodate other special dietary needs (e.g., allergies to certain foods).

In our Mother Nature programs where meals are provided, a vegetarian diet is possible.

What may not always be easy to ensure is a strictly vegan diet, as host families and local cooks may not always be fully familiar with it. You can speak to them on-site and specify which ingredients you do not want in your meals.
