Available Attractions:

Spice Tours

Guaranteed to waken your senses. Visit spice plantations where you will have the opportunity to pick, smell & savour fruit & spices that you have probably never seen on the supermarket shelf. Commencing at the ruins of the Maruhubi Palace, via the site of David Livingston’s house (one of Africa’s greatest explorers) the journey continues north toward the Kidichi Persian Baths. From here we continue to the rural areas where local farmers live & produce some of the world’s most exotic fruit and spices. Cloves, star fruit, ‘bulls heart’, tangerine trees, lemon grass, mangosteen and lip-stick trees, to name but a few, are what you can expect to see – according to the seasons. Perhaps you will fancy buying a basket of freshly picked spices to take home with you!

Jozani Forest Tour

Jozani Forest lies about 35 km southeast of Zanzibar township in Zanzibar’s South Region. It is the only remaining natural forest on Unguja Island (which along with Pemba make up the islands of Zanzibar). The forest which covers an area of 10 sq km consists of woodland, swamp forest and evergreen forest. It provides an important refuge for the remaining Ungula fauna such as the rare red colobus monkey, small Zanzibar leopard and two antelope species: the Zanzibar duicker and sunni.

Bawe Tropical Island

In 1879, Bawe Island was given by Seyid Barghash bin Seyid, 3rd Omani Sultan of Zanzibar, to the Eastern Telegraph Company to be used as the operations station for the underwater telegraphic cable linking Cape Town with Zanzibar, Seychelles and Aden. The agreement was extended ten years later, in 1889, by the next Sultan, Seyid Khalifa bin Seyid. To accommodate the Cable & Wireless staff, Bungalows were built on the island, which were used also to host weekend parties when other town-based staff would visit and enjoy the beach with their families. Bawe is renowned for its breathtaking marine life, making it a popular site for both snorkelling and scuba diving.

Dolphin Tour

This half day tour takes you to kizimkazi along south-west coast of Zanzibar, upon arrival at the fishing village Kizimkazi you will have a brief talk about the behaviors and different types of dolphins before proceeding to the dolphins locations with 80% chances to see them. There is a fair chance you will get to play and swim with them, returning to the sea shore in the afternoon. Several bottle-nose dolphins stay at Kizimkazi all year-round. There are also rather shyer humpback dolphins that put in an appearance here, although their schedule is a little more erratic.

Nungwi Coastal Excursion

North coast tour. This trip leads you through one spice farm, Mangapwani Slave Caves and Chambers, and on to the beautiful white sandy beaches of Nungwi. The most wonderful place to relax and unwind after the dust and humidity of Stone Town. Pack your swimwear and enjoy a cool drink in paradise.

Sunset Dhow Cruise

This tour starts an hour before sunset. You are picked up from your hotel and transferred to the drop off point at the sea front, where you then board the dhow. The skilled crew on board take the dhow about 1 km from the shore by means of an engine. Once out at sea the engine is shut off and during a tense moment the skillful crew hoist the sail, then you can sit and relax enjoying the peacefulness of the ocean as the dhow glides through the water. You can watch the wonder of the fiery golden sun setting beyond the horizon, whilst savouring a glass of chilled wine.

Deep Sea Fishing

Forget fishing in a modern fishing vessel with the latest in reels and rods and fighting chairs. We offer you the unique opportunity to sail out to sea with a Zanzibari fisherman and see what ‘fishing for a living’ is all about. Whilst the crew are busy preparing fishing nets the timelessness of this tradition will carry you far from the pace of the modern world. On returning to Zanzibar Island we will take you to see the colourful, bustling fish market where the fresh catches of the day are auctioned.

Sailing Trip

A sea excursion in a traditional wooden dhow, made by hand on Zanzibar Island. The dhow is the same as those which were used to carry slaves from the mainland to Zanzibar. This trip will take you to Prison Island, home to the giant tortoise, then on to a sandbank where you can have soft drinks and snacks. A perfect place for swimming and snorkelling. On a full day excursion you then have time for fishing.
