Unforgettable Experiences in Zanzibar
Stone Town of Zanzibar
Immersed in history and recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Stone Town is a mosaic of African, Arab, Indian, Persian, and European cultures. Graceful balconies and verandahs shade its narrow passageways. Wander its winding streets, echoing with stories from the remains of the old slave market to the splendour of the Sultan’s Palace. The town’s unique character is highlighted by intricately carved wooden doors, beckoning visitors to discover its mysteries. Opting for a half-day guided tour is an excellent way to explore the depths of this historic jewel.
Changuu Island, commonly known as Prison Island, beckons as one of the archipelago’s beloved day-trip destinations from Stone Town. A brief boat ride unveils a world of aquatic wonders, including exceptional snorkelling spots, nature trails, a pristine beach, and the extraordinary spectacle of a sanctuary for giant tortoises.
Sail along the coast in the timeless elegance of a traditional Arab dhow. As the waves gently carry you, savour a seafood feast fit for royalty – grilled fish and succulent lobster paired with exotic fruit juices, ice-cold sodas, chilled beers, or a glass of wine. It’s an odyssey of taste and tranquillity that you won’t soon forget.
Embark on an expedition to observe and, if fortune smiles upon you, swim alongside dolphins in their natural habitat. The waters surrounding Zanzibar are frequented by bottlenose and humpback dolphins, with spinner dolphins gracing the northern reaches of the island.
