TRIP INTRODUCTION

Tanzania - 15 4 - Colors of Zanzibar Stone Town
Welcome to Zanzibar, where your time will be spent near the sparkling beach and the beautiful Indian Ocean. Your time is very much your own, and with two nights on this piece of paradise, you can soak up all the relaxation you deserve. Marvel at the soft lapping of the waves, as the beautiful clear waters of the Indian Ocean meet the perfect white sands of Zanzibar. In addition, you will have the chance to find out about Zanzibar’s history, with a tour of atmospheric Stone Town.

Tour Overview

Tanzania - 17 5 - Colors of Zanzibar Stone Town
While you will be chilling-out by the beach most of the time, perhaps cooling off in the hotel pool or enjoying an ocean swim or some watersports, you will also be guided around historic Stone Town, the characterful quarter of the island capital with its narrow streets and patchwork of architectural styles. After your two-night stay here, we will transfer you back to the airport for your return flight.

This morning you will enjoy breakfast at your hotel, before being transferred to meet 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. Afterwards, we will transfer you safely back to the airport for your flight.

  • Meal Plan Breakfast today will be served at your Sultan Sands Island Resort, while lunch is at the Silk Route Indian restaurant in Stone Town. (Note that the Silk Route is a rooftop restaurant, with access being by a lengthy staircase.)

WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED

Tanzania - tips - Colors of Zanzibar Stone TownTipping 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:

Local Guide: $25 US per day, per couple.

Transfer Driver: $15 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.
Any Changes done by you The trip excludes changes done by you during safari or before safari which deviates from the original program.
Flights The trip costs Excludes International and Domestic Flights
Visa The trip costs Excludes all visa costs including arrival visas and transit visas
