ABOUT US

What We Do:

At Grassroots Traveller, we value responsible travel and aim to deliver authentic experiences by offering excursions and activities to match just that, as well as to suit individual interests.

We take our time to know our destination, think outside the box and put ourselves in the locals’ as well as the travellers’ shoes throughout our experiences.

Our Story:

Hafsa Mbamba (co-founder), a Copenhagen born Zanzibari entrepreneur and globetrotter has always had itchy feet and a thirst for other cultures. It was during her semester abroad in Melbourne, Australia as a young teen that Hafsa discovered that travelling was her calling. Her ultimate goal with Grassroots Traveller is to steer away from the stereotype of tourism as merely a matter of a plane ticket and hotel reservations. The philosophy behind it is to strengthen the tourism industry by linking it with other sectors and incidentally help improve the livelihoods of many.

CSR

Donate Backpacks:

We encourage our visitors to make a positive contribution to where they travel to. On your next trip to Zanzibar, you may donate a backpack filled with school essentials and hygiene items like toothbrushes, soaps, pads to a local student. We know that every student needs a backpack, therefore when you donate one, it will be one less to worry about. This gesture can assist families to spend their money on other essential items.

Example of school essentials:

  • Pencils
  • Pens
  • Exercise books/Notebooks
  • Rubbers/Erasers
  • Rulers
