Ngalawa is a traditional canoe that has been used for fishing and transportation along the coast of Zanzibar for centuries. It is a twin-hulled sailing canoe, usually made by local craftsmen using locally sourced materials like wood, ropes and coconut fiber.
Ngalawa sailing is a popular activity in Zanzibar, particularly on the eastern coast around Michamvi and Pingwe. Visitors can take part in guided tours, either as a spectator or as a participant, and experience the thrill of traditional sailboat transportation along the stunning coral reef coastline.
Ngalawa racing is also a popular event in Zanzibar, particularly around the time of the annual Sauti za Busara music festival. During the racing events, local sailors showcase their traditional sailing skills on the turquoise waters of Zanzibar’s coast, with spectators lining up to watch the show.
Sailing an Ngalawa in the waters of Zanzibar is an authentic and immersive experience, allowing visitors to explore the island’s natural beauty and experience its unique culture in a completely different way.
