Stone Town is Zanzibar’s historic heart, a bewildering maze of streets and alleyways that form the westernmost tip of Zanzibar Town. . These days the island’s bustling capital is home to some quarter of a million people, but lost in the tangle of Stone Town’s narrow streets it’s easy to imagine yourself floating back in time. Twisting passages unfurl beneath delicate balconies as you dodge clattering coffee carts and slip by past ornately carved doors. This tour will also have you visit Jozani Forest Reserve just south of Zanzibar Town. Jozani is home to the fabulous Kirk’s red colobus monkey, which with its distinctive grey tufts and ochre-red back is one of the rarest sights in Africa.
You will be picked up from Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (ZNZ) and driven to Zanzibar Stone Town. It is the old city and cultural hub of Zanzibar. Very little has changed in the last 200 years. The Zanzibar Stone Town is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses whose original owners vied with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings.
In the evening, you will have free time to relax or have leisure walks in the narrow streets of Stone Town.
Accommodation: Tembo House Hotel
