Your program starts with a morning walk on our Historical Stone Town Tour. This tour takes you through fabled Stone Town, where history appears to stand still. With visits to the House of Wonders, the Palace Museum (People’s Palace) and the Arab Fort amongst others, it is a fascinating look at the essence of Zanzibar. You will see Zanzibar’s bustling market, winding alleyways, ornately carved and studded doors, two cathedrals, and countless mosques! Dinner and overnight stay at your hotel in Stone Town.

Accommodation: Forodhani Park Hotel

The House of Wonders shows the cultural and architectural influences of Zanzibar, Britain, Portugal and Oman over the centuries. When it was built it was the most modern building in East Africa and the first building to have electricity and an elevator. The House of Wonders hosts a historical exhibition and offers insight into Zanzibari and Swahili culture. It is a very important and visually stunning historic building in Stone Town. The House of Wonders is the grandest and tallest building in all of Stone Town and is found in a prominent location in front of the Forodhani Gardens on the old town’s waterfront along Mizingani Road. Dinner and overnight stay at your hotel.

Accommodation: Forodhani Park Hotel

Today you will go on an excursion to the spice and fruit plantations close to Stone Town for the famous Spice Tour. We have developed a special spice tour with in-depth information not only about spices but also organically grown herbs and a detailed description of their traditional uses in medicine cosmetics and cooking. After the tour, we invite you to an opulent lunch at our guide’s home, where you can taste the spices and fruits. After lunch, we take you to your beach resort. On the way, you will pass Jozani Forest, the last habitat of the rare endemic red colobus monkey. With a local guide, you stroll through Jozani Chwaka National Park and look at the rare monkeys. If you wish you can even wander down the boardwalk to the fascinating mangrove ecosystem. During the evening return to Stone Town for dinner and overnight at your hotel.

Accommodation: Forodhani Park Hotel

Today you will visit Kizimkazi, situated on the southern point of the island. Kizimkazi fishing village is home to several schools of bottle-nosed dolphins and humpback dolphins, which can often be sighted following a short boat trip from the village. If you are lucky, you may be able to swim quite close to the dolphins, which can be a very rewarding experience. We are doing this trip in the afternoon to avoid the crowds of tourists in the morning, which in big numbers disturb the dolphins. Dinner and overnight at your beach resort.

Accommodation: Amaan Bungalow

In the morning at 7:30 you’ll be picked up from your hotel for the drive to Fumba village where you will meet your special boat. Today’s excursion is about visiting three different sandbanks and you will stop on one of those for a seafood lunch followed by snorkeling later with the chance of seeing the dolphins. It is a full day returning at 17:30 at Fumba village, and the hotel around 18:30. Dinner and overnight at the same beach resort.
