Zanzibar ngalawa is a traditional wooden sailing boat used for fishing and transportation in Zanzibar, an island off the coast of Tanzania. It is also known as a “dhow” or a “nawari” in Swahili. The ngalawa is typically made by hand using local materials, including mango wood, coconut rope, and canvas. It has a distinctive triangular sail that allows it to catch the wind and glide through the water. The ngalawa has been used for centuries by fishermen and traders along the East African coast and remains an important part of Zanzibari culture and economy. Tourists can experience a ngalawa ride and explore the turquoise waters surrounding the island.
