Jet Ski Ridding

The tour starts from Nungwi and heads out towards the mysterious island of Tumbatu, known amongst the locals for its seclusion and witchcraft. We will cruise by the island and admire its perfectly pristine settings. Near Tumbatu, we will take a about 15 minutes to relax and swim. The tour will continue on towards Kendwa (rated top 10 beaches in the world) and from there we will cruise along the coastline admiring all the hotels and beaches along the way back to Nungwi.

Prison Island

Prison Island, also known as Changuu Island, is about 30 minutes by boat from Stone Town. The island was formerly owned by an Arab who used it for the confinement of refractory slaves, but no prisoners were ever properly housed there; instead, the island became a quarantine station for the yellow fever epidemic. The actual jail was built in 1893, hence the name “PRISON ISLAND”, and is still standing. Whilst on the island you will be able to observe and feed the tortoises, swim, sunbathe and snorkel. You should also keep your eyes peeled for the shy and elusive Duikers – an unusual and tiny antelope species.

Spice Tour

The Spice Tour is one of the most popular things to do in Zanzibar. The island got its nickname ‘the Spice Island’ as a result of it being one of the world’s leading producers of spices such as clove, nutmeg and cinnamon during the 19th century. Your tour guide will describe how the various different plants can be used and you will have the chance to smell and taste a variety of spices, herbs and tropical fruits, including clove, lemongrass, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric, vanilla, coconut, papaya, chili, black pepper, jackfruit, cardamom, cassava and oranges.

The House Of Spices

The House of Spices was once one of the most notable houses in Stone Town, belonging to an old family of spice traders. Spices from the islands of Pemba and Zanzibar were brought to the house and once selected, they were ground, packed and exported to Europe and the Americas. The house has been kept in good order and any restoration work has followed the original plans that go back through the many years of its history. Even though more than 200 years have passed since it was built, the House of Spices still carries the romance and atmosphere of an old Arab house.

Stone Town Tour

Stone Town is the capital of Zanzibar and is a fine example of the Swahili coastal trading towns of East Africa. The town’s urban fabric and original townscape is virtually intact and contains many fine buildings that reflect its particular culture; a culture that has brought together and homogenized disparate elements of the cultures of Africa, the Arab region, India, and Europe over more than a millennium. Visiting Stone Town is definitely one of the best things to do in Zanzibar.

Hurumzi Henna Art Gallery

The women of the Hurumzi Henna Art Gallery transform traditional henna body art into paintings and prints. Using the centuries old tradition of adorning women’s hands and feet for celebrations such as weddings and festivals, the artists translate the patterns of the body art onto canvas, creating a new and soon to be iconic art style through their elaborate paintings.


Mwani Centre

The Mwani Centre is the headquarters of a local social enterprise that enables the women of Paje to harvest seaweed and then make a living by transforming it into desirable organic soaps, scrubs and essential oils (also involving cloves, coconut and local honey). Visit the Seaweed Center to shop or arrange a fascinating tour of the seaweed farms and processing centre.




Jozani Forest

This forest is one of the last remaining sanctuaries of the red colobus monkeys in the world and it was declared a nature reserve in the 1960′s. At one time, the monkeys were an endangered species, but numbers have increased in recent years thanks to the conservation work by the nature reserve, working closely with the local people. A walk through this impressive flora and fauna offers wonderful photo opportunities as well as sightings of these rare creatures, which, together, make this tour one of Zanzibar’s highlights.

You are safely and securely attached to the rope allowing you to float in the air and enjoy the thrill of flying and the amazing panoramic views of the island.

Snorkeling with a chance to see Dolphins

For those who don’t dive there is a wealth of snorkeling opportunities around Zanzibar. Many of the sites have reefs that almost reach the surface and the fish are use to divers and will cluster round you. All of our snorkeling trips are accompanied by an experienced guide who will help you find the fish, answer any questions you have about them and ensure you are safe and comfortable. All equipment is provided and is of a high standard and for those who are less comfortable in the water we have buoyancy aids available at no extra charge and the guide always takes a life ring. There also will be a chance to see dolphins along the way.
