5 days Zanzibar beach vacation

5 DAYS ZANZIBAR BEACH VACATION.

Overview.

A 5 Day Zanzibar beach holiday will reflect to the beautiful past of this amazing Island. The exotic spice plantation, the ruins, dhows, coconut palms swinging along the white sand beaches & the fascinating history from the days of Portuguese, Oman Arabs & others. All these will make your vacation in Zanzibar as rewarding as it should.

Day by day.

Day 1: Arrival at Zanzibar airport / sea port and be transferred to your hotel in the old city of Stone Town.

Zanzibar's Stone Town is a fascinating living monument to the history of East Africa, and an extraordinary place to explore.

Stone Town thrives today on mainly tourism, contributing millions of dollars to stone town and Zanzibar at large. Ranging from dolphin safaris to sunset cruises, this city is a place to be. You have to know what to expect from Stone Town, and you have to be robust and ready for it!

It is an ancient town, impoverished and disheveled with much to recommend it and much that could be improved! The ancient palaces and forts, balconies and ancient carved, wooden doors tell some of the story of its great past. Any visit to Zanzibar Island would not be the same without a little to explore here.

Stone town city tours can include the prison island, Jozani forest nature walk, spice tour as well as other tours arranged in and around the city.

Day 2: Dolphin Tours and visit to the Jozani Forest.

On this day after breakfast at your hotel as early as 08:00 to 08:30 you will depart for Dolphin tour at Kizimkazi & Jozani forest visit on the way back. Dolphin tour is conducted at Minai bay Marine reserve. Your guide will organize everything for you.

Swimming with dolphins & snorkeling at the beautiful Minai bay Marine reserve is part of your program. Snorkeling gears are available at the starting point for those who will need them, mostly is mask & flippers (please talk to your Guide). Lunch is included therefore, at the starting point please press your order before starting the tour.

On your way back possibly at 15:00hrs, you will visit the Jozani forest where the endemic species of red colobus monkeys inhabit. After Jozani forest visit you will drive back to your hotel in Stone town for overnight stay.

Day 3: Boat Trip to Prison Island – Matemwe Beach.

After breakfast at your hotel as early as 09:00 hrs. You will depart for Prison Island with a traditional engine wooded dhow (if you will go out for snorkeling - please hire snorkeling gears from the boat man before leaving Stone town). Prison Island was once intended to be used as a place for concealment of slaves during the slave trade in East & Central Africa. The Island sometimes served as the quarantine during the outbreak of contagious diseases such as cholera & yellow fever. Today the Island is a breading site for some rare species of Giant Aldabra tortoises.
