Zanzibar conjures up exotic dreams of Arabian nights and African Tribes and it is synthesized in this historic town. The Unesco World Heritage site is a labyrinth of lanes and minarets, with colourful markets. Visit the House of Wonders, the romantic Princess Salme museum and the 17th century fort.
Join a dolphin spotting boat trip in the south of the island, go early in the day before they dive deep in search of cooler waters. Stroll with giant tortoises on Changuu Island 30 minutes across the water from Stone Town, or visit the cheeky Red Colobus Monkeys in Jozani forest.
There are spice tours at our Moja Tuu reserve and many farms around Zanzibar. Pick clusters of peppercorns, peel cinnamon bark and taste natural nutmeg and vanilla. Discover how those seeds and powders in your kitchen cupboard grow on this delicious spice island.
There are a number of terrific dive and snorkel sights around the island, notably Mnemba Marine Reserve, 20 minutes boat ride off the north shore, is a fabulous underwater world with hundreds of fish species. Divers and snorkelers might spot turtles or if very lucky the gentle whale sharks.
Anytime of day you will see the traditional Arabic Dhow pass across your horizon, we can arrange local trips on the sea for fishing expeditions or just a sail along our pristine Indian Ocean coast. Take a sunset cruise with cocktails for a special magic evening.
The north tip of Zanzibar is an internationally renowned big game fishing site. We can arrange the right sized boat to accommodate your party, set with fishing tackle. Expect to find Tuna, Barracuda, Giant Travelli, Wahoo, Kingfish and Marlin in season.
