TRIP INTRODUCTION

Tanzania - 9 8 - Tanzania's Zanzibar

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.

Tour Overview

Tanzania - 16 4 - Tanzania's Zanzibar
You will be introduced to Stone Town, with one night in this characterful quarter of the island capital. Discover its narrow streets and patchwork of architectural styles, before dropping the pace even further with a three-night stay by the beach. There’s plenty of time to relax on the perfect sands and enjoy the gentle rhythm of the Indian Ocean. At the end of your stay, we will transfer you back to the airport for your return flight.

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 White sands, the turquoise ocean and lush vegetation define Zuri Zanzibar, situated in a fantastic location on Kendwa Beach at the northern tip of the island.
           
            • Guest accommodation here is in individual bungalows and villas, giving privacy to those who stay here. Accommodation units are decorated with locally crafted furnishings and African artworks. Lush, lovingly designed gardens add to the relaxed ambience at a place justifiably proud of its eco-credentials.
           
          • Yoga, meditation, art therapy and an outdoor fitness area are some of the facilities available to Zuri’s guests. A range of activities, including snorkelling, diving, sunset boat trips and many others are all possibilities here (at extra cost). Quieter moments can be spent with a book or DVD from the hotel library. Dining is a Zuri highlight, with a choice of restaurants wonderfully inspired by the culinary traditions of Africa , Arabia, India and the ocean.
    • Meal Plan Breakfast will be taken at Park Hyatt Zanzibar, lunch will be at the Silk Route Indian restaurant, while dinner today will be served at Zuri Zanzibar. (Note that the Silk Route is a rooftop restaurant, with access being by a lengthy staircase.)

WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED

Tanzania - tips - Tanzania's ZanzibarTipping 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
