Day 1: Zanzibar

Arrive into Zanzibar Airport/Harbour. Upon arrival you will be transferred to the heart of Stone Town where your hotel is located. UNESCO listed Stone Town is rich in history and culture, with a labyrinth of narrow streets, bustling bazaars and ancient buildings. The architecture is a fascinating mix of Swahili, Arab, Persian, European and African styles, testament to the influence that trade brought to the region. Overnight Tempo Hotel

Day 2: Zanzibar

This morning you will be met by your guide and taken on a guided tour of Stone Town and a Spice Tour en-route to your hotel where you will get the opportunity to see a spice plantation and the process involved in harvesting these perfumed ingredients that we today take for granted, but were once as precious as gems or gold with pirates often cruising the coast pilfering ships for their precious spice cargo. Lunch will be your own arrangement. The rest of the day will be at leisure to enjoy the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Overnight Coral Rock Hotel

Days 3-7: Zanzibar

Spend the next five days at leisure, relaxing on the beautiful white sands and soaking up the sunshine. For those feeling active, there's a wide range of excursions available. Perhaps opt for a spot of snorkelling or scuba diving to see the incredible coral reefs teeming with exotic fish and perhaps the odd dolphin in the azure waters. Other activities in or above the water include fishing, windsurfing or various boat trips. Traditional dhow cruises are offered by the locals and are a great way to see the local lifestyle or island hop to some of the smaller uninhabited islands. Also consider a day trip to Jozani Chwaka Bay national Park - home to the rare Kirk's Red Colobus Monkey, Syke's Monkey and Ader's Duiker. Overnight Coral Rock Hotel

Day 8: Zanzibar

This morning you will be met by your driver and driven to Zanzibar Airport for your flight home. Sadly our arrangements come to an end. We hope you have enjoyed the magic that is Zanzibar.
