Zanzibar Island


6 Days | 5 Nights


Abeid Amani Karume International Airport

Tour Overview

This tour takes you to a relaxing beach holiday in Zanzibar. Nothing quite shouts HOLIDAY like a stay on an exotic Island nestled amongst the Indian Ocean!

Our Tanzania beach island tours are the perfect way to experience some of the most beautiful islands in the world. With crystal clear waters, white sand beaches, and lush vegetation, these islands are a paradise waiting to be discovered.

Imagine yourself lying on the beach, listening to the waves crash against the shore as you relax in the warm sun. With our tours, you can make this dream a reality. Come explore some of the most stunningly beautiful places on earth with us.

You will be introduced to Stone Town, the characterful quarter of the Island capital with its narrow streets and patchwork of architectural styles. After one night there, we will transfer you to your beach hotel for extended time together in one of nature’s most perfect settings. True relaxation; at its very best. Just kick back with the soundtrack of the Indian Ocean. At the end of your stay, we will transfer you back to the airport for your return flight.


Day 1

On arrival at Zanzibar’s Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, you will be met by our company’s representative who will take you on a short 20-minute transfer to your hotel in Stone Town, the historic quarter of Zanzibar City. You have the evening at leisure and your dinner tonight will be provided by your hotel.
Located on a promontory jutting out from the western side of Unguja Island into the Indian Ocean, The Stone Town of Zanzibar is an outstanding example of a Swahili trading town. This town developed on the coast of East Africa, further expanded under Arab, Indian, and European influences. However, it retained its indigenous elements, to form an urban cultural unit unique to this region. The Stone Town of Zanzibar retains its urban fabric and townscape virtually intact and contains many fine buildings that reflect its particular culture. This has brought together and homogenized disparate elements of the cultures of Africa, the Arab region, India and Europe for more than a millennium.

Day 2

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 Kendwa Beach for dinner and overnight at Zuri Zanzibar.

Day 3

Today, you are free to do exactly what you want – and to do as little as you want. After all, you can simply relax by your hotel pool or down on the beach, perhaps under a swaying palm tree. If a day of total inactivity is really not your thing, you can swim or take advantage of one of the activities on offer via your hotel reception.

Accommodation: Zuri Zanzibar

Day 4

Today is a second full day for you to relax at your ocean-side hotel, have a gentle swim in the sea or to enjoy the more active facilities on offer. Or, of course, you can set out to explore a little bit more of this beautiful island. The reception staff at your hotel will be happy to help arrange any activity or excursion that takes your interest.

Accommodation: Zuri Zanzibar

Day 5

Wake up in the idyllic setting of your Zanzibar beach hotel, for your last full day on this blissful island. A big decision awaits you once again, simply whether to do nothing or to engage in some land or water-based activity with your beloved.

Accommodation: Zuri Zanzibar

Day 6
