A half day tour including transfer time to the central location. Discover, feel, smell, understand the multiple uses of exotic spices from which the Zanzibar archipelago derives its name and indeed the foundations of its golden age – The Spice Islands.
Nungwi – village tour
A half or full day tour, Nungwi is situated on the northern tip of Zanzibar. See dhows being built, local furniture craftsmen, wander the village lanes, see the natural turtle museum, walk the lovely beaches and soak up some sun. And en route, see the Mangwapani caves, illegal hiding place of slaves.
This half day tour takes place on the southern part of the Menay Bay conservation area – a home to the bottle-nosed and humpback dolphin. Includes the boat ride into the bay, and is therefore weather dependent. Snorkeling in the bay is also beautiful.
Stone Town tour
UNESCO proclaimed World Heritage site. Steeped in history as a hub for trading ivory, slaves and spices. Wander the alleyways, marvel at the architecture and the world famous doors, feast on local tastes and aromas, buy treasures with good haggling skills. A half day or full day tour, finish off with cocktails at sunset, watching out for the elusive green sun flash.
A 10 minute boat ride from Stone Town. Witness its dark history as a slave detention center, quarantine station, and then marvel at the 100 yr old giant tortoises, white, sandy beaches and great snorkeling. Fish and chips for lunch!
30 minutes from Dongwe. Canopied jungle, waterways, tropical birds and the sightings of the globally rare but often seen in the Jozani Forest Red Colobus Monkey, a visit to the forest is a must for any lovers of nature.
