After Moivaro Hotels, Lodges & Tented Camps purchased the hotel, renovations started in May 2008. Most of the hotel has been restored into its original state, but we have been making some changes as well. The result is The Swahili House - a sparkling hotel with traditional influences and modern day facilities in combination with authentic Swahili hospitality.
The Swahili House is located in the centre of Stone Town and therefore in the middle of all the action! The bustling market, shops, restaurants and other points of interest such as the House of Wonders are all within walking distance from the hotel. We can organize professional guides who’ll assist you while discovering Stone Town in order to get the maximum out of your visit to this busy little town and its hundreds of little streets. Besides that, we offer various trips in and around Stone Town. Learn everything about the spices you normally only see on the shelves in the supermarket on a Spice Tour or visit the cheeky Colobus monkeys at Jozani Forrest. Explore the magnificent Menai bay while snorkeling or just enjoy a relaxing massage – there are plenty of things to do and see! Naturally, we offer transfers to and from the airport and other Zanzibari destinations as well. It’s all possible at The Swahili House and we’re more than happy to assist you in order to make your stay on Zanzibar a memorable one!
The Swahili House has 5 floors that are all built around a beautiful traditional Zanzibar courtyard. The floors are all reachable via traditional Zanzibari staircases and an elevator.

Tanzania boasts the most impressive National Parks and game reserves in all of Africa. The plains and savannahs of Serengeti National Park are considered “the” spot on the continent to see wildlife up close. Nearby, the Ngorongoro crater teems with wildebeest, gazelle, zebra, lions, leopards, cheetahs and even the elusive white rhino. Not to be forgotten, the Selous Game Reserve is larger than Switzerland.
