Tour Plan

1 Arrival Day

Welcome to Zanzibar! On arrival at Zanzibar’s Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, you will be met by our driver guide who will take you on the short, 20-minute transfer to your hotel in Stone Town, the historic quarter of Zanzibar City. You can choose to swim in the stunning infinity pool, with views over the Indian Ocean, enjoy the spa (at extra cost), work out in the fitness room or simply kick back on a sun lounger and soak up the rays. When it comes to dining, the hotel’s Zamani Residence concept truly excels, composed of a variety of terraced restaurants drawing on influences from Indian, Arabic and continental cuisine, as well as offering fish caught locally.

2 Stone Town Tour - 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. In the evening, you will be guided back to your Stone Town hotel for dinner and an evening at leisure.

3 Beach Hotel

After breakfast, you can enjoy the morning at leisure. Your Stone Town hotel will provide you with an early lunch, before we transfer you to your chosen beach hotel for the next part of your stay in exotic, enticing Zanzibar. After the delightful chaos of Stone Town, it’s now time to relax and enjoy some real downtime.

4 Beach Hotel

Today is a second full day for you to relax at your oceanside hotel, have a gentle swim in the sea or to enjoy the more active facilities on offer.
