A tropical group trip in the beautiful island of Zanzibar

Our names are Lanaiza & Mahdi. We are from New Orleans, LA. We met working in corporate America doing sales for a big travel company. After a couple of months of office banter, we finally admitted our romantic interest in one another and the rest was history. It wasn’t long before we took our first trip together to Puerto Rico that made us really believe in the power of travel. 3 years later, here we are, traveling all around the world creating incredible memories that will last us long beyond any materialistic item. These trips we have taken have shaped the way we view the world, as well as life in general. We have hiked active volcanoes, swam alongside whale sharks, learned about indigenous cultures, and everything in between & now we want you to join us! This trip to Zanzibar will be our first time in Africa, and we thought what better way to experience it than with like minded adventurers like you! We’ll laugh, eat, dance, and explore until we can’t anymore. Can’t wait to see you there!
