Tour Highlights

Welcome to Stone Town and to Zanzibar. Combining the historic charms of atmospheric Stone Town with three nights by the beach, this is a perfect trip for those who love relaxation but who also want to understand a bit of the Spice Island’s fascinating history and culture. A perfect holiday, with the perfect name: Magical Zanzibar.

Day 1 Arrival Day and Welcome to Zanzibar

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

Day 2 Stone Town Hotel – Beach 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. After the tour, we will transfer you to your chosen beach hotel for your dinner, an evening at leisure and the remainder of your stay.

Accommodation: Zuri Zanzibar

Meal Plan: Breakfast will be taken at your Stone Town hotel, lunch will be at the Silk Route Indian restaurant, while dinner today will be served at your beach hotel. (Note that the Silk Route is a rooftop restaurant, with access being by a lengthy staircase.)

Day 3 Day at leisure at your Beach Hotel

Today, you are free to do exactly what you want - and to do as little as you want. After all, you can simply relax by your hotel pool or down on the beach, perhaps under a swaying palm tree. If a day of total inactivity is really not your thing, you can swim or take advantage of one of the activities on offer via your hotel reception.

Exclude

Tipping:

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.

Any Changes done by you:

The trip excludes changes done by you during tour or before tour which deviates from the original program.

Travel Insurance:

Drinks at the hotels:
