Your program starts with a morning walking tour around historical Stone Town, taking you through the fabled 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 alley ways, ornately carved and studded doors, two cathedrals and countless mosques!

Today you go on an the famous Spice Tour to the spice and fruit plantations close to Stone Town. We have developed a special Spice Tour with in depth information not only about spices, but also organically grown herbs and a detailed description about their traditional uses in medicine, cosmetics and cooking. After the tour we are invited for an opulent lunch at our guide’s home, where you can taste the spices and fruits. Afterwards we take you to your beach resort, passing 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 for the rare monkeys. If you wish you can wander down the boardwalk to the fascinating mangrove ecosystem.

Dinner and overnight: Fumba Beach Lodge

In the morning you drive along the coast, passing the fishing villages of Bwejuu and Paje before reaching Jambiani, a fishing village on the east coast of Zanzibar. We offer a cultural village tour to visit villagers working in different professions. Our guide tells about the history of the village, you will visit a traditional herbalist who will show you the local medicines, herbs and their uses, visit a local organic plantation on coral stone, where farmers cultivate under difficult circumstances, and seaweed farms run by woman. A good chance to learn about the unique culture and the diverse environment of Zanzibar’s villages and to meet the friendly Waswahili people. We will show you real life, not images designed for tourists.

Dinner and overnight: Kichanga Beach Lodge

Today enjoy an excursion to Kizimkazi, situated on the southern point of the island, a fishing village where several schools of bottle-nosed dolphins and humpback dolphins 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 do this trip in the afternoon to avoid the crowds of tourists in the morning, which in big numbers disturb the dolphins.

Dinner and overnight: Kichanga Beach Lodge

Today you will be transferred to Zanzibar International Airport in time for your onward travel.
