You will depart to Zanzibar where on arrival, you will be met and greeted by our representative. Our representative will take you to the hotel. Check in the hotel and relax for the Overnight in Zanzibar.

After  breakfast at hotel, depart for Your Stone Town tour of Zanzibar which will be marked by many moments of wonder as you view the charms of this old metropolis that has retained its essence, but also has favorably, albeit cautiously embraced the elements of modernization. Every nuance of its vibrant history is evident in the beautiful buildings, some that whisper about the Omani advent in Zanzibar and others that speak about the origins of Swahili architecture fused with a Persian Shirazi influence.

Side by side, you will see churches that are evidently continental due to the colonial presence and the many mosques commissioned by the olden Sultans of Zanzibar. Step into the House of Wonders and visit the 17th-century built fort. You could also check out the one-time slave market that Zanzibar was repentantly renowned for. To lay your finger on the pulse of the old town, you must take a walking tour through its enchanting labyrinth alleyways. Then head out to the Anglican Church that was built to bond religious gaps and in celebration of the end of all traces of the slave trade. Here, you will learn that the Sultan of Zanzibar abolished slavery in 1873 in a treaty with its commercial partner in slavery, the British Empire, as a result of the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 under English law.

Next, your well-informed African Mecca guide will lead you to Sultan's Palace Museum (Beit-al-Sahel) and House of Wonders (Beit-al-Ajaib) that houses a collection of personal items from the royal rulers of Zanzibar. Go on to the Tippu Tip’s House, Africa House that was once a British Club, the Old Fort, Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Jamaat Dispensary and Forodhani Gardens. End your journey on this leg of your cultural and historical vacation in this part of Africa with a souvenir extravaganza at the small stores along the narrow streets and haggle for delicate jewellery, distinct Swahili clothing, hand carved curios and paintings. Overnight in Zanzibar.

Zanzibar was one of the world’s leading producers of spices such as clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Tour takes you to an organic farm with wide variety of plants around the year. You don’t just see, you also touch, smell and taste. Spices and herbs were originally introduced to Zanzibar by Portuguese traders in the 16th century, brought from their colonies in South America and India. This tour is a walking tour in a spice farm. While there, you shall see how the spices, herbs and fruits grow and also how they are cultivated. Your tour guide will describe how the crops can be used.

After breakfast at the hotel, depart for Changuu Island also known as Prison Island. The island was formerly owned by an Arab and saw use for confinement of refractory slaves but no prisoners were ever housed here instead the island became a quarantine station for yellow fever epidemics. It was bought by General Lloyd Mathews and the jail (goal) which still stands was built in 1893 and hence the name “PRISON ISLAND”. This tour includes a visit to the historic Prison Island with its giant land tortoise. While on the island you will be able to observe and feed the tortoises, swim, sunbathe and snorkel.
