This short trip starts out in Stone Town, Zanzibar's historic centre and a World Heritage Site, where you'll have a chance to see the sights and visit a local spice farm, before transferring to a beach resort for three nights of glorious relaxation. It's the perfect choice if you want to combine memorable experiences with a chance to recharge your batteries in a beautiful location.
Arrive Stone Town
Your trip begins as you're met on arrival at Zanzibar's airport or harbour and transferred to your hotel in Stone Town.
After breakfast this morning you'll take a tour of Stone Town, taking in historic sites including the Anglican Cathedral, the slave markets, the Palace of the Sultans, Tip Tip's House, the Old Arabic Fort, Forodhani Park and, of course, the famous Zanzibar doors. You'll also learn about henna art and visit the fruit and vegetable market. The afternoon you're free to explore further on your own or to relax, before a sunset cruise along the Stone Town waterfront and dinner at a local restaurant.
Stone Town to the Beach
This morning you'll take a tour of a spice farm to learn more about this fascinating local industry. After lunch, you will be transferred to your beach hotel, where you'll be staying for the next three nights.
The beach part of your holiday begins in earnest today, with the whole day at leisure to devote yourself to relaxation. Lounge on the sand, take a dip in the water, or hang out at your resort's swimming pool.
A second day with no activities planned, so just lie back on the sand and relax!
Your holiday comes to an end after breakfast this morning as you transfer to the airport for your flight home.
