Trip Overview

Trip Overview

This 4-day escape to Zanzibar – an African paradise of sun, sea and beach just off the Tanzanian coast – is the perfect way to wind down after an exhilarating safari and/or mountain trek, but is also a great stand-alone option if you only have a few days to spare. It combines a mixture of beach relaxation on the shores of the Indian Ocean with a bit of culture in and around the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stone Town. Zanzibar is also known as the Spice Island, and no visit would be complete without a guided walk through one of the island’s spice farms. These are only just some of the highlights of a visit to Zanzibar! 

Day 1: Welcome to paradise!

Welcome to the beautiful spice island of Zanzibar! Upon arrival at Zanzibar’s Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, you will be greeted by a Tansafari-Tours representative, who will transfer you to your beach accommodation. Kick-off your shoes and explore your new surroundings. Feel the sand between your toes, take your first dip in the warm ocean waters, enjoy a walk on the beach, or simply relax on a sunbed under the palm trees. You have arrived in Paradise!

Day 2: enjoy paradise!

Today is at your leisure. Take advantage of one of the many tours we offer (swimming with the dolphins, snorkeling, or a guided mudflat hike to a nearby reef, to name but a few). Alternatively, simply relax with a book on your sunbed by the ocean or pool. There are unlimited ways to personalize your stay in Zanzibar!

Day 3: discover stone town & take a spice tour

Today you will enjoy a private guided tour of historic Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, including a visit to the former slave market and other interesting sites. Stone Town is famous for its winding alleys, grand architecture, bustling bazaars, former sultans’ palaces, mosques, and old merchants’ houses with their remarkably ornate doors. After your tour, you will have time to walk through the winding streets and bazaars on your own.

Last, but not least, you will complete your visit with a fabulous spice tour, during which your senses will come alive!! Nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, carambola (star fruit), jackfruit, and durian are just a few of the spices and fruits that you will learn about. You won’t just see…you will also touch, smell, and taste!

After a great day of culture and discovery, you will be driven back to your beach hotel just in time to watch the gorgeous sunset over the Indian Ocean while sipping a delicious cocktail!

Day 4: farewell Zanzibar

Enjoy your last hours in tropical paradise before flying out. The warm turquoise waters are beckoning for one last swim, and the endless stretch of beach is reaching out to you for one more walk to find that perfect shell that will become a cherished memento of your Tanzanian holiday. Your driver will pick you up from your hotel at the arranged time and take you back to the airport for your return journey home or other onward destination. 

One of our safari experts will get back to you within 24 hours.
