If a beach holiday to the stunning island of Zanzibar is on your travel to-do list, then we have the ideal tour for you. Our six-day Zanzibar tour gives you the chance to experience the island’s top attractions and activities, leaving you with a lifetime of unforgettable memories.
Day 01: Stone Town
Jambo! Welcome to Zanzibar, Tanzania – an archipelagic gem filled with idyllic beaches, vibrant markets, and a varied, and sometimes dark, history. This is a place rooted in slavery, where Arabian sultans once lived and Swahili and Islamic influences blend to create an exotic island paradise steeped in centuries of history. With no planned activities today, why not throw yourself into the midst of Stone Town’s maze of narrow streets – every twist and turn alive with an enticing mix of fragrant bazaars, enchanting mosques, and charming ruins. Perhaps head to one of the bars on the seafront and soak up the salty ocean air with a cocktail in hand.
Day 02: Zanzibar North Coast
Venture out of Stone Town this morning and drive to the spice plantations for a guided tour to learn all about the history of this town’s renowned spice trade. Take the opportunity to touch, smell and taste various spices – such as cinnamon, vanilla, and ginger – then sample some delicious teas! After lunch, head to the northern beaches, where white sands and sparkling blue seas await. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure – this is the Indian Ocean at its best.
Day 03: Zanzibar North Coast
Wake up in paradise and enjoy a full day of freedom to indulge in the beautiful island surrounds. Take the opportunity to snorkel in the transparent waters, walk the stretch of powder white sand and paddle in the bath-like Indian ocean, dine on freshly caught sumptuous seafood or simply relax in a hammock underneath a coconut tree with a good book. There are many ways you can spend your day – perhaps talk to your leader for any recommendations.
Day 04: Zanzibar North Coast
Transfer from the resort to Zanzibar Airport for your departure flight and the end of your beach break.
