Stone Town Zanzibar

This short 2-day Zanzibar holiday package explores the tropical island of Zanzibar with a rich cultural and historical experience, along with its dazzling white beaches with azure waters.

From Dar es Salaam, we take a flight or a speed boat in and out of Zanzibar. Upon arrival in Zanzibar airport or harbor, we transfer to Stone Town the charming capital city of Zanzibar Island and begin our tour.

Stone Town is the oldest city and the cultural heart of Zanzibar and has hardly changed in the last 200 years. It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand houses, whose original owners competed with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings, which is reflected in the beautiful brass-studded and carved wooden doors.

You will spend 2 days exploring Stone Town with narrow streets, impressive architecture, bustling markets and small but interesting museums. And in the company of a professional local guide, you will also see many reminders of Zanzibar’s historic involvement in the slave trade, abolished in these parts by the Sultan of Zanzibar in 1873.

Places that maybe of interest to you include Emerson Spice House for views across Stone Town’s exotic skyline, Capital Art Studio – photography shop with treasures of the past and present portraits of the East African Island.

You could visit Darajani Market – Zanzibar’s main market with everything from spices, fresh fish, slabs of meat and huge baskets full of live chickens to sandals, plastic buckets and mobile phones. Not to be missed is the Forodhani food market – a seaside food market that comes alive at night with a huge variety of sea food and barbecued meats!

Historical places include David Livingstone house, Hamamni Persian Bath, Palace Museum, House of Wonders, the Palace Museum, Mercury House, the Old Dispensary and the St Joseph’s Cathedral.

One could also opt to take a sunset dhow Sail – sail aboard a sunset cruise and watch the historic Stone Town shoreline glide-by, while the lights from mainland Dar es Salaam twinkle in the distance. Anyone visiting Zanzibar simply must go on a spice tour.

With a local guide you will walk amongst vanilla pod vines, fields of lemongrass, cumin seed pods and turmeric root. Smell, sample, savor – the experience is a sensual journey into the spices that flavor our food.

On your second day while in Zanzibar you could choose to take a half-day trip to Prison (Changuu) Island or visit Jozani Forest and prison island.
