Welcome to Stone Town and to Zanzibar. This short stay in the most historic, atmospheric part of this enchanting island group will certainly stimulate all your senses! With two nights on this piece of paradise, you can soak up the relaxation you deserve... Marvel at the soft lapping of the waves, as the beautiful clear waters of the Indian Ocean meet the perfect white sands of Zanzibar. A real highlight will be Stone Town itself – we take you on a guided tour which will make your perfect stay complete.
On arrival at Zanzibar’s Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, you will be met by our driver who will take you on the short 20-minute transfer to your hotel in Stone Town, the historic quarter of Zanzibar City. You have the evening at leisure and your dinner tonight will be provided by your hotel.
Accommodation: Tembo House Hotel
Meal Plan: Dinner tonight will be served at your Stone Town hotel
After breakfast at your hotel, kick back and enjoy a day at leisure at your Stone Town hotel. You can cool off in the hotel pool or in the nearby ocean – the choice is yours. Or perhaps you would prefer to explore the town? Your hotel will also provide you with lunch and dinner today, so this really is a day when you can take it easy.
Accommodation: Tembo House Hotel
Meal Plan: Breakfast, lunch and dinner today will be served at your Stone Town hotel
This morning you will enjoy breakfast at your hotel, before meeting our expert local guide for a tour of fascinating Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Over the centuries, many cultures have left their impressions on Zanzibar and it is perhaps in Stone Town where you can most easily see their influences. Your guide will lead you first to the colourful market, awash with exotic smells and buzzing with bartering locals. Afterwards, you will visit the calm of the 19th C cathedral, built on the former site of the slave market after the 1873 abolition of slavery.
As you wander the narrow streets and alleys, you’ll pass the Arab houses with their inner courtyards, hidden behind heavy doors. You can compare their style with the Indian residences, adorned with balustrades and metal railings. Amongst the town’s historic sites are the ‘Tip Tip House,’ the Old Fort and the People’s Palace Museum. Lunch will be taken at the Silk Route Indian rooftop restaurant, with views to the ocean. The Silk Route is full of character, so enjoy the excellent cuisine, perhaps washing it down with a cocktail. Afterwards, we will transfer you safely back to the airport for your flight.
Meal Plan: Breakfast today will be served at your Stone Town hotel, while lunch is at the Silk Route Indian restaurant in Stone Town. (Note that the Silk Route is a rooftop restaurant, with access being by a lengthy staircase.)

Explore Stone Town with our professional local guide
Tipping is of course discretionary, but is an expected part of the way in which business is done in Tanzania. It counts as an expression of gratitude to those who – hopefully – have made your experience an unforgettable one and enables you to directly reward those people. Our visitors come from all around the world, with different cultural attitudes to tipping, but a tip is of great significance here in Tanzania and will be hugely appreciated by the recipient. We know that the act of giving of a tip can be a bit awkward and we would suggest that the best way to remove this ‘awkwardness’ is for each couple to put their tip anonymously into an envelope and for the envelopes to be presented by the couple to the staff member. As a guideline, you should consider tipping at the following levels:
Tour guide: $20 per day, per couple.
For hotels, please do not tip individual staff members, but instead use the ‘Tip Box’, which you should find at the reception of your accommodation. For guidance, you should consider tipping between $5-7 per day, per guest, at the accommodation.
The trip excludes changes done by you during tour or before tour which deviates from the original program.
The trip cost excludes travel insurance which is essential.
All kinds of soft drinks and hard drinks at the hotels are not included.
