Zanzibar is an island off of the coast of Tanzania, and the students will be staying in the city of stone town, just off the coast of Tanzania. During this summer program students will be learning Swahili at the State University of Zanzibar, while also immersing themselves in the culture and daily life of Zanzibar while enjoying the stunning beauty of the island.
