Zanzibar – Stone town and spice tour, Prison Island and Jozani forest, Safari Blue, and Dolphin Tour. 


Day 1: Stone town and spice tour

 This introductory guided tour of Zanzibar provides living evidence of a rich cultural heritage, where Arabs, Indians, Persians, and European influence blended with local African tradition. Historic buildings with elaborately carved wooden doors shaded by balconies, loggias, and verandas line the narrow winding alleys. Visit to The Central Fresh Market, Former Slave Market(Dungeons, Sculptures and the Church) Old German Consulate, The Africa House (former English Gentlemen Club), Tip-Tip House, Old British Consulate, Orphanage Home, Old Fort, Forodhani Garden, The House of Wonders, Sultan Palace (Museum), Custom House, Old

Dispensary, Old Harbor, etc. Takes 3hrs

I prefer the Government spice farm; drop off for a walk from the plot to the plot which grows spices, fruits, and some veggies. (Dig, pick, taste, and smell some roots, leaves, fruits, and barks of different spices) then guessing exactly what you see, sense and experience. Drinking of tea follows such as masala, lemongrass, and vanilla all these come with sweet Zanzibar peanut brittles. Watching a coconut climber is an ingredient of a tour (Drink some young coconuts n taste all seasonal fruits. It takes 3 hours

Day 2: Prison Island and Jozani forest

Prison/Tortoises Island and Snorkeling: It’s about 30 minutes crossing over from Stone town to Northwest, the Island has an amazing scenario for the photographers, watching the giant/baby tortoises as well as visiting the Prison – building which was planned becoming as a prison but did not work out in ancient time. Includes entree fee, boat, picnic lunch, and snorkeling gear (in case clients like to snorkel) .

Jozani Forest Red (colobus monkeys):

It takes 35 minutes for a car drive heading down South/East of the Island. Visiting the rain forest, walking on the mangrove swamp bridge for having a chance to hear lots about the species of mangroves available, and seeing the red colobus monkeys which said “endemic” to be only found on this Island. It’s all about flora and fauna. Takes 3hrs

Day 3 : Safari Blue,

 Safari Blue:

After breakfast drives all the way southwest of the Island to the fishing village of Fumba. Briefing on the day’s excursion – you will then board the dhows n set off searching the Dolphins (85% chance). The species frequently found at Menai Bay are Spinner and Bottlenose dolphins. Swim with them as long as they stay close to the boat. You will then go on to one of the selected snorkeling areas, while accompanied by a snorkeling guide to show you points of interest and to assist the beginners. You will then ride onto another island or sandbank for lunch. Lunch is a traditional Zanzibar meal and typically includes a selection of BBQ fish, rice, lentils, and fish curry. Mineral water and bottled soft drinks are available throughout the day. You will spend the remainder of the afternoon, relaxing, swimming, or snorkeling. Return to Fumba by sail, if winds permit; setting off around 15h30 in your mini-vans and transferring back to your hotel.

Day 4 Dolphine Tour (Mnemba +Aquarium boose or sunset cruise

 Dolphin Tour

Heading up north is seventy minutes maximum for a car drive from Stone town. It includes transfers, boats, swimming gear, meals, and marine conservation fees. We also recommend clients from Stone town leave at six. The late departure the less chance to see the dolphins cause the water temperature will become warmer. Not only that but also the boat increments cause the dolphins scare so not much comfortable for both sides. Great snorkeling is done along the Atoll where you can see beautiful corals and countless species of fish such as angel ones, zebra, lions, Saladin’s, trumpets, and seafood platter served with chips and rice plus coconut curry.  (optional launch)

Sunset Cruise or Booze Cruise

Either a sunset cruise or a booze Cruise can be done depending on the type of pax on board we will start during the evening hours along the beach with the boat all the way within the ocean till sunset we will have drinks for refreshment and additional traditional and local music/dance with optional get together and goodby dinner in the evening.

Day 5. End of the tour,

Depending on your flight you will be picked up to the airport for your onward flight
