as mentioned in our last post, the Sauti Za Busara Festival on Zanzibar takes place from 13th to 16th of February.
This is exactly the time of our Valentine’s Zanzibar Special.
The Sauti Za Busara is an annual music festival located in Stone Town.
It is open for international visitors as well as locals and brings different cultures together – from young to old.
