Zanzibar Tours

If you have some spare days before returning home after your trek/safari you should definitely consider some time visiting the tropical island of Zanzibar. The beaches of Zanzibar are sensational with their white powdery sands and the contrasting azure blue, crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. A few days of sun-drenched laziness at the beach are the perfect end to your trip! Here we offer just some of the Zanzibar tour options available on the island.

Zanzibar Spice tour

Zanzibar is famously known as the ‘Spice Island’ so it would somehow seem incomplete if you didn’t visit one of the islands plantations for a Spice Tour during your stay!

Zanzibar is much more than just a beach-lovers paradise – the island’s history goes back many centuries. Its heyday came in the early 19th century when the Sultan of Muscat moved his court to Zanzibar. Spice cultivation was developed (particularly the clove tree), and the slave trade was at its height – Zanzibar became the most important town in East Africa. With traders from Persia, Arabia and India visiting the island it became rich and famous with a wonderful mix of cultures and religions – creating the unique and fascinating blend that can be found on the spice island today.

Travelling  To Zanzibar

The quickest and easiest way to travel to Zanzibar is to fly from the mainland. If you would like us to arrange your flights and transfers please let us know. Alternatively for those travelling on a budget there are is a bus that runs daily from Moshi to Dar-Es-Salaam, and from Dar you can take a ferry to the island. If you opt for the latter you should presume to allow a full day of travelling to reach your end destination.
