Ngalawa canoe. Ngalawa being prepared for launch. The ngalawa is a traditional double-outrigger canoe of the Swahili people living in Zanzibar and the Tanzanian coast. It is usually 5-6 m long, with two outriggers, a centrally-placed mast (often inclining slightly towards the prow) and a single triangular sail. It is used for short distance transport of goods or people, as well as a coastal fishing boat. Photographed in Jambiani, Zanzibar, Tanzania.
