Accommodation: Tembo Hotel Stone Town

Meals:  Half Board basis.

DAY 02: Stone Town and Prison island tour

Zanzibar has a long and fascinating history, and it would be a shame to visit the Spice Island without experiencing a little of that often-dark story. There are a variety of ways to learn more about Zanzibar’s history as a slave port, British protectorate, and former independent nation.

One popular option is to take a half-day Stone Town Tour in which you’ll wander the labyrinthine alleys and bustling market bazaars of the Zanzibar capital. Highlights of this tour include the National Museum of Zanzibar, the House of Wonders, the Old Fort, and the haunting ruins of the former slave market.

For those with a little more time, the Zanzibar Prison Island tour combines history with a little leisure. You’ll not only visit the prison island to observe its new turtle inhabitants, but also enjoy some time snorkeling around the gorgeous former prison island.

Accommodation: Tembo Hotel Stone Town.

Meals: Half Board Basis.

This full-day experience takes you on a day of sailing, sunbathing, snorkeling, and feasting as you explore the fabulous Zanzibar coast. Along the way, you’ll have the chance to sunbathe on isolated sand banks, spot dolphins playing in the waves, and feast on delicious BBQ seafood.
