Itinerary

Join Zanzibar Airport, transfer to hotel in Stone Town

Arrive on the beautiful island of Zanzibar, "The Spice Island". From the airport you will be transferred to your hotel in Stone Town. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore this magnificent, ancient town which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stone Town is a port city on the western coast of Zanzibar and historically significant as it was one of the main coastal and slave-trading ports in East Africa. Enjoy free time to stroll around the narrow alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses. You can spend many idle hours just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets, admiring the intricately carved wooden doors. Return to your hotel, which has local charm and character, authentic furniture and is in a good location. Be sure to take in the view from the rooftop terrace!

Transfer to coast in the afternoon

Morning at leisure in Stone Town. This afternoon you will transfer to the South West Coast (approximately 40 minutes) to our peaceful beach hideaway accommodation. Once settled in, there are several activities to enjoy or you may prefer to relax and not move beyond your front door. You can swim in the clear blue waters, soak up the sun or try your hand at some water sports available at the lodge such as snorkelling, scuba diving, or a sunset cruise (own expense).

At leisure on the coast

Time at leisure to soak up the peaceful atmosphere and enjoy the beauty of the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean and this tropical island paradise. Take a Spice Tour, learn about the history of one of the most beautiful islands in the world, unwind at the swimming pool or enjoy the beach under the branches of the baobab and do nothing at all. Your time here will be relaxing and unforgettable.

Transfer to airport, trip concludes

After breakfast this morning you will be transferred back to Zanzibar Airport. Trip arrangements end on arrival at the airport.
