  1. The common languages in Zanzibar are English and Swahili, but English is widely spoken especially in Stone Town, also Arabic and Italian and lately there are quite a few tour guides in town who speak German.

  2. English and Swahili are main languages in Zanzibar, It is lots of fun if you try to speak some words in KiSwahili, greetings for example. You will for sure be rewarded with a bright smile. Most important word is “Jambo” which is a friendly greeting – you just reply also with “Jambo”. Thank you is “ahsante”.  For the English word “cool/okay” you can use “poa”.
