  • Enjoy the turquoise waters and white sand beaches of the South West Coast
  • Unwind and relax after your summit climb on Mt Kilimanjaro

Discover the essence of Zanzibar on this remarkable extension. Exotic spices, turquoise waters, white sand beaches and a history ranging from slave trading to strong Arabic links characterises the island of Zanzibar, just off the Tanzanian coast. Wander the narrow streets of Stone Town, take a dolphin watching cruise, a Spice Island tour or just relax and soak up the island atmosphere.


Arrive on the beautiful island of Zanzibar, "The Spice Island". From the airport you will be transferred to your hotel in Stone Town. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore this magnificent, ancient town which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stone Town is a port city on the western coast of Zanzibar and historically significant as it was one of the main coastal and slave-trading ports in East Africa. Enjoy free time to stroll around the narrow alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses. You can spend many idle hours just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets, admiring the intricately carved wooden doors. Return to your hotel, which has local charm and character, authentic furniture and is in a good location. Be sure to take in the view from the rooftop terrace!
