Exploring Zanzibar

Add this to wishlist

Zanzibar is a collection of islands off the coast of Tanzania. The Zanzibar archipelago is set in the Indian Ocean and is made up of the larger islands of Pemba and Unguja (also called Zanzibar Island). Zanzibar is also known as ‘Spice Island’ due to the delicious variety of spices grown there. The best ways of exploring and experiencing Zanzibar Island is by taking in a Spice Tour on a Stone Town Tour, the Mangrove Forest and Dhow trip, taking a Reef Safari and Diving in the World Renowned Diving Centers in Zanzibar.

 

Stone Town

Stone Town Tour

A visit to the World Heritage Site of Stone Town, viewing historic Spice Plantations, the Slave Chambers, Maruhubi baths and Prison Island on the Island of Zanzibar is the best way to begin your vacation in Zanzibar. Taste local dishes and walk on cobbled streets of the capital’s old quarter – Stone Town buzzing with colourful back-street markets and local flavours.

 

The Mangrove Forest and Dhow Trip

The Mangrove Forest and Dhow Trip

The day begins with a leisurely cruise around the mangroves in a traditional Swahili Dhow where the guides will show the guests some of the abundant marine and wildlife thriving in these forests. After the visit to the mangroves the guests are instructed on how to hand line fish as it has been done on the island for hundreds of years. This is just one small way that the reefs and marine life are preserved on the island as there is no trolling, dynamiting or mass fishing. The boats do not anchor but rather drift with the currents whilst the guests fish. The guest’s catch is then brought back to the hotel and after a short meeting with our chef, prepared for their dinner that evening.

 

Reef Safari

Reef Safari

At low tide, guests are able to go for a reef safari where you take a walk out to our coral reef and see the spectacular marine life. Guests will be accompanied by a member of staff out on the coral shelf in front of the hotel and will point out many of the juvenile fish that seek refuge in the shallow waters at low tide. The guests will listen to how the coral itself is vital to the island and its inhabitants as well as information about the sea life they encounter.
