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 evening meal will be provided by your hotel.

Accommodation
Zanzibar Serena Hotel
The low-rise, oceanside Zanzibar Serena Hotel was created from the careful restoration of two historic buildings and captures some of the style and atmosphere of times gone by. Both Arabic and Swahili influences can be seen here, but the history is merged with modern facilities and the first-class service gives a great guest experience to those seeking a high standard of accommodation.
Up on the roof, the Terrace Seafood Restaurant provides its diners with wonderful views out over the ocean – the source of the wonderful seafood dishes that are served here. The Masahani Bar is the venue for a refreshing cocktail, and it also hosts occasional performances by Taarab music bands.
Guests here can take advantage of the swimming pool or enjoy the sunshine from the comfort of a poolside lounger, as the dhows glide by on the ocean below.

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
Tonight will be spent at your beach hotel.
Breezes Beach Club and Spa
Beautiful Bwejuu Beach, on the east coast of Zanzibar is where you’ll find the Breezes Beach Club and Spa, perfectly placed on one of the island’s finest stretches of white sand.
A romantic choice, the Breezes can offer a range of spacious air-conditioned accommodation types, all with either balcony or terrace.
Breezes’ guests have a choice of dining venues: the traditional Zanzibari cuisine is inspired by the Arabic, African and Indian visitors from years gone by, but continental dishes are also available.

You can pamper yourself with the range of treatments and services at the Frangipani Spa (extra cost), relax beneath the palm trees by the pool or do something more energetic like tennis, water sports, snorkelling or a gym workout. You could even learn Swahili here (!) or take advantage of some cooking lessons.

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.

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 passengers 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:

Driver guide: $25 US per day, per couple.
For hotels/lodges/tented camps, 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 US per day, per guest, at each accommodation.
