What to do when In Zanzibar:

  • For nature lovers, a trip to Jozani Forest, the last remaining rainforest on the island is recommended. It is also the habitat of the rare Red Colobus monkeys.
  • From the port of Stone Town you can take a boat to the Changu Island, also known as Prison Island, because there is still the ruins of an abandoned prison.On the island you can snorkel and admire giant tortoises.
  • A popular destination is the Persian Baths of Kidichi, of Sultan Sayyid Said built in the early 1800’s as a gift for his second wife.
  • Also interesting are the Mangapwani slave caves where slaves were loaded onto ships through an underground tunnel network, primarily heading to the Middle East.

  • The most famous tour is the Spice Tour, here you are driven to the spice gardens and plantations on the island. You will see cinnamon, cocoa and pepper trees and shrubs as well as many other spices. The guide explains the particular fruit as well as their processing and local uses. This scenic excursion should not be missed.
  • On the way is the old Sultan’s Palace (Palace Maruhubi), a truly intersting site including the Sultuns personal harem for 99 ladies.
  • It is worth a trip to the south coast of the island, more specifically, to the fishing village of Kizimkazi. From there you can take a boat trip to the reef, where wild dolphins often frolic in the immediate vicinity of the boat. The Captain will allow you to jump into the water and swim with the dolphins.
