Our Library features a wonderful selection of historical and educational books on Zanzibar and is a comprehensive resource on the History of Zanzibar and East Africa. We also have a great selection on books with information on animals, trees, spices and fish native to the Island and East Africa.
We organize classes “under the Palm trees” featuring Mwalimu (teacher) giving Swahili classes and lessons on the History of Zanzibar. Guests can learn Palm weaving on the beach. Cooking classes are organized regularly where guests learn to prepare some classical Swahili dishes with our excellent chefs who talk about the local spices and their use and importance.
Aside from the Tours and Excursions that are offered at our Guest Relations Desk, The Palms features a selection of activities designed to explore our area and interact with the community.
