Arrive into Dar Es Salaam Airport you will be met and transferred to the Harbour. Upon arrival in Zanzibar you will be transferred to the heart of Stone Town. Zanzibar once held the title of being Africa's major hub of trade before the mainland became more settled and tamed (if Africa could ever be considered tamed). Zanzibar is also known as the 'Spice Island' due to this period when spice was its major trade followed closely by the slave trade and ivory. UNESCO listed Stone Town is rich in history and culture, with a labyrinth of narrow streets, bustling bazaars and ancient buildings. Overnight - Stone Town
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 the Eastern beach resort of Kiwengwa 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 - Kiwengwa
Spend the next two days at leisure, relaxing on the beautiful white sands and soaking up the sunshine. For those feeling active, 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 - Kiwengwa
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.
