Zanzibar News: 6,000 fruit trees planted by government program

Zanzibar News: 6,000 fruit trees planted by government program

Zanzibar’s government, alongside various partners, has kicked off an impressive campaign to plant fruit trees. According to Hamza Hassan Juma, the Acting Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation, Natural Resources, and Livestock, a total of 6,454 trees were planted in 2023 as part of this effort.

Minister Hamza also disclosed that the government is actively pursuing a decade-long program aimed at replenishing greenery by introducing a variety of tree species, including native ones.

Acknowledging the grave issue of fruit trees being indiscriminately chopped down for furniture and urban expansion, Minister Hamza assured that the government is committed to intensifying patrols and enforcing measures to curb environmental degradation across the nation.

Responding to concerns raised by Mwanakwerekwe Representative Ameir Abdalla Ameir regarding the rampant cutting of fruit trees, Minister Hamza emphasized the severity of the problem. He warned that if left unaddressed, Zanzibar could soon face a dire shortage of fruits for local consumption.

Encouraging islanders to refrain from unnecessary tree felling, Minister Hamza urged them to embrace the practice of planting fruit and forest trees for both personal use and the well-being of the environment.

Zanzibar News: Announcement of the Magnificent 70-Story Domino Tower, Second Tallest Builiding on the Continent

Zanzibar Domino Tower, a new megaproject on the island of Zanzibar, promises to bring a new dimension of luxury and innovation to East Africa. Located on a man-made island spanning 3,982,646 square feet, connected by a bridge to the west coast of Zanzibar, this project has the potential to become the second tallest building in Africa and the largest hotel in the region.

This massive mixed-use development covering 370,000 square meters will comprise 560 residential apartments and two luxury hotels, all housed within 360 “dominoes” encircling a marina. Emmanuel Umoh, CEO of Crowland Management Ltd, emphasized that the tower has the potential to become an iconic landmark attracting tourists and culture enthusiasts, while also offering new business opportunities.

Zanzibar Domino Tower is envisioned as an emblematic tourist destination, set to be realized on a 20-hectare site stretching 4 km long. The plan includes recreational, entertainment, retail, and residential programs, with standout features such as an island resort with a golf course and a wedding chapel on a private islet. The tower will also feature 560 residential units and 5 and 6-star hotel and spa facilities.

Zanzibar is gaining increasing recognition worldwide, and its development is rapidly accelerating. Therefore, investing in the Zanzibar Archipelago presents a promising opportunity for those seeking investment prospects in a dynamically growing region.

Building Dreams, Creating Memories: A Cocco Lagoon Investor’s Trip to Pemba Island

Our recent investor’s journey to Cocco Lagoon was a true adventure! From the scenic catamaran ride to Pemba Island, where the turquoise waters met the clear blue sky, to exploring the construction progress on our ambitious project, every moment was nothing short of extraordinary. 

We had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the breathtaking coral reefs surrounding Misali Island, a memorable pitstop that left us in awe of nature’s wonders. As the sun dipped below the horizon, we gathered around a beachside bonfire, the crackling flames adding warmth to the already vibrant atmosphere.

The evening culminated in a chef-curated feast, a symphony of flavors that delighted our senses under a spectacular sunset. The juxtaposition of the vivid hues in the sky against the tranquil waters set the stage for unforgettable moments.

The following day was dedicated to exploring the Cocco Lagoon project. We strolled through the construction site, witnessing the impressive progress of Bungalow Nakupenda and the promising upcoming apartments. The internal roads, sturdy walls, and the entrance gate are taking shape, reflecting the tangible transformation of our dream into reality.

The progress is incredible, and we can’t wait to share more updates with you. Stay tuned for a glimpse of how we celebrated in true Cocco Lagoon-style, capturing the essence of our shared vision and the promise of paradise on Pemba Island! 

As we embark on this journey, we invite you to join us in creating something extraordinary. Keep an eye out for our upcoming photo recap, and remember, every individual has the opportunity to become a part of the unique project that is the Cocco Lagoon Hotel Condominium.
