Here you will be served a luscious lobster barbecue on a white sandy beach with no corals or sea urchins.

Jozani Forest Tour (for a minimum of 2 people)

Your Optional Excursions

The Jozani Forest reserve is located in the Central East region of Zanzibar. It is home to the endangered red Columbus monkey. Since the government declared the forest as a natural reserve, the population of the primates has increased. It is also home to other wild animals such as small buck, wild pigs and the elusive Zanzibar leopard, which has not been seen for several years. Jozani has an excellent nature trail with well-trained tour guides.

Half Day Stone Town Tour (for a minimum 2 people)

Your Optional Excursions

Stone Town is one of the few intact historical Swahili trading towns of East Africa. It was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in the year 2000. The tour takes you to the fabled Stone Town, where history appears to stand still.


The fascinating architectural design of stone town buildings with ornately carved and studded wooden doors shaded by balconies and verandas that line the narrow winding streets is an evidence of rich cultural heritage where Arab, Persian, Indian and European influence blended with African tradition. The tour includes a visit to the bustling town market, the former slave market, the house of wonders, the sultan palace, the Arab fort etc. There is also time for shopping; Stone town has a variety of excellent gift shops with plenty of souvenirs and handcrafts.

The historic spice island of Zanzibar lies just off the coast of Tanzania, and promises everyone a once-in-a-lifetime holiday experience, whether that be at the tail end of a thrilling safari or independently as an island adventure. Zanzibar caters for every traveller, whether that be those looking to backpack on a budget, or those interested in enjoying a luxurious and exotic getaway.


In terms of attractions, Zanzibar is as varied as it is beautiful, ensuring guests in search of diversity are constantly surprised. Stone Town should be number 1 on any tourist's bucket list. Charismatic, full of life and rich in history and culture, the quaint, cobbled streets of Stone Town are a delight to explore and offer up no end of treats, including the relaxed seafront promenade, the faded colonial buildings, the colourful food markets and unique touches such as the Aldabra giant tortoises at Prison Island (a short 30-minute boat ride from Stone Town itself). Given its historical focus on the spice industry, an informative spice tour is also highly recommended!


For those who simply wish to lay back, soak up the sunshine and unwind with a cocktail in hand, Zanzibar's many beaches are also destined to delight. Favourites include Nungwi and Kendwa in the north of the island, where tourists are sure to be awe-struck by an untouched Indian Ocean paradise.
