Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival at Zanzibar international airport and transfer to Stone town

The driving guide will meet and greet you at the Zanzibar airport upon your arrival. He will then transport you to Stone Town, where you will relax in one of the magnificent hotels.

If you have time in the evening, explore the Forodhani Market at Forodhani Gardens for a gourmet adventure. The gardens are positioned along the seafront and are great for an afternoon stroll to observe some of Stone Town’s historic structures. However, the busy nightly market brings the gardens to life at night. Zanzibari fish, pizza, falafel the size of your face, sugar cane juice, gigantic samosas, coconut bread, and crepes dripping with chocolate syrup ribbons are all on the menu.

On the other hand, you can end your first day in Zanzibar with sundowners on the hotel terrace followed by dinner in the hotel restaurant, which serves both local and international cuisine.

Meal plan: Dinner

Day 2: Stone town tour, Zanzibar Island spice tour, Palace visit and Slave caves

After breakfast, your guide will meet you at the hotel and take you on a walking tour of Stone Town, Zanzibar City’s fascinating old quarter. You’ll discover the many architectural styles of Zanzibar’s diverse nationalities and intriguing history as you walk around Stone Town’s twisting streets.

Mosques and churches, as well as ornately carved entrances, can all be found. Visit the slave market, where the East African slave trade thrived in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries before being closed down by the British.

The ancient slave market is now home to the Anglican Cathedral Church of Christ, which houses many reminders to the city’s terrible past. You will then explore the ruins of Maruhubi Palace, which was built in 1880 to house Sultan Said Baraghash Bin Said’s 99 concubines.

After lunch at a pre-selected restaurant, you will go to Stone Town to see the slave caverns. See and learn about how slaves lived during the slave trade era.

Following that, have a spice farm tour. The spice industry in Zanzibar is considerable. Spices, supplied by Omani Arabs in the 19th century at a time when spices were a valuable commodity all over the world, became Zanzibar’s main source of revenue when the slave trade was prohibited.

They are important in Zanzibar culture because they are used in food, as a treatment for various ailments, and as pigments and henna for decorating at festivals and weddings. When you see spices like cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, nutmeg, and turmeric root thriving in the plantations, it’s easy to see why Zanzibar is nicknamed as “The Spice Island.”

Try some of the unusual fruits that grow here, such as jack fruit, custard apple, rambutan, and carambola. Henna, lipstick tree, and lemongrass are among the plants that have been planted here. You then travel to a hotel in the northwestern part of Zanzibar Island. Where will you relax, dine, and spend the night?

All meals are included in the meal plan

Day 3: Full day relaxation at the Zanzibar beaches, Zanzibar cultural tour and participating in other optional activities

After breakfast, you are free to relax on the beaches or engage in leisure activities. If you prefer watersports, the resort has a PADI-accredited dive shop on-site to organize and manage your diving excursions. Your dive is in good hands with some of the best diving in the world and a company that knows where to go.

Watersports such as kayaking, sailing, and windsurfing are also popular. On dry land, there is a fitness center, beach volleyball, billiards, and table tennis. If all of that is too much for you, you can relax by the pool or visit the spa.

In the late evening, take a Zanzibar cultural tour to learn about the various civilizations in the area, such as the Swahili culture and the Arab culture, which stayed in Zanzibar for years after they came to do coastal trade. They have coexisted and even intermarried since then.

You will learn about their culture and way of life. In addition, take a sunset sail around the Stone Town waterfront before returning to the hotel for supper and an overnight stay.
