Memories of Zanzibar

The biggest souvenir store in Zanzibar, Memories of Zanzibar offers the most extensive selection of quality items all under one roof, at reasonable prices.  Situated within walking distance of major Stone Town Hotels such as the Serena, Tembo and Dhow Palace, you can count on a pleasant shopping atmosphere and service with a smile.


Memories of Zanzibar is the creation of a Zanzibar-born brother and sister team who studied and lived abroad, returning to Zanzibar in 1996 to make their dream a reality.  The business started in a tiny room of 9 square metres and moved to it’s present location in April 2000.

A veritable treasure trove in historic Stone Town, Memories of Zanzibar offers an exciting range of local crafts, exclusive garments, spices, books, tasteful cushion covers, bedcovers and wall hangings, jewellery, kikoi garments and sarongs.  You can also find the largest selection of African music in town here.
