Surroundings and Attractions
While in Stone Town, there are many activities to do to enjoy your stay in Zanzibar and to know Zanzibar in General. I have included here a variety of tours which you can do while here.
There are two ways of doing the tours:
1. By sharing a vehicle with other tourist (from the hotel or from other hotels) you need to check with the receptionist:
This is the cheaper way and many visitors prefer it. However, it is better to arrange it in advance to avoid missing the transport; the busses, which operate this way, have specific departure times.
2. By using your private vehicle:
This is the most convenient way of doing the tours as you can do it at the time you want.
Note: To get the tour as it is explained in details herewith depends much on which tour operator you booked with. Our assistant manager (Getrude) or me, will assist you to select a tour operator which will ensure you get the original tour as explained here.
Prices for shared tours do not include admission fees and taxes. If you take this option, you will need to pay the admission fees and taxes yourself.
Herewith please find a variety of tours that can be arranged for you with the hotel in advance or while at the hotel:
CITY TOUR
(1/2 DAY MORNING OR AFTERNOON)
This tour will take you to visit the town market, slave market, National Museum of Zanzibar, High Court Building, Slave chambers, old German Consulate, Africa House (former English Club), Tip-Tip House, Kelele Square, old British Consulate, Orphanage Home, Old Fort, Forodhani Gardens, House of Wonders, Sultans Palace (now a Museum), Customs House, the Old Dispensary are among the informative attractions on this flexible guided tour in and around Zanzibar Town
SPICE TOUR
(1/2 DAY MORNING OR AFTERNOON)

Without a guide, you will never find nutmeg sitting on the forest floor or think to peel the bark off a cinnamon tree, but these are some of the fun things to do on a spice tour. The guide may use a knife to carve off a root, branch, or bark and then ask you to smell or taste it to guess what it is. The guide may offer you a green coconut and they are very good. Do not expect a Pina Colada, green coconuts do not have sweet milk – it is more like subtly flavored water and the meat is delicious. Along the tour, there is a kiosk where you can buy packaged spices including turmeric, tandoori, vanilla beans, masala, hot chilies, black pepper, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon sticks or powder, ginger and others. This tour is highly recommended and includes a visit to the Maruhubi Palace Ruins and Livingstone House.

ORIGINAL SAFARI BLUE
(FULL DAY)

The original and the best “Safari Blue” is a full day excursion using locally made traditional sailing dhows of between 8 to 10 metres in length. 6 passenger-carrying dhows that are finished to the very highest standards and fitted with outboard engines, marine VHF radios, gas inflatable life jackets, sunshade, boarding ladder, waterproof bags and first aid kit.
The excursion starts at the fishing village of Fumba, 30 minutes drive from Stone Town. Fumba is situated in the southwest corner of the island and is an ideal starting point to explore Menai Bay, designated a Conservation Area. The bay has a number of beautiful uninhabited islands and sandbanks and is frequented by humpback and bottlenose dolphins.
On arrival at Fumba, clients are given a briefing on the day and a life jacket demo. We then board the dhows and set off to explore the bay and find the dolphins. We are lucky enough to see dolphins on at least 85% of our trips.
Later in the morning, there is a stop on a sandbank where a set up sunshades and fit the clients with snorkelling equipment. Guides, who can safely lead the snorkelling session and show points of interest, accompany the clients. For beginners or those who are not confident swimmers, we have inflatable snorkelling vests and our guides can give tuition.
After snorkeling clients are given fresh green coconuts before, we move to a desert island for lunch. During the morning a catering boat has gone on ahead to prepare lunch, which is served on teak picnic tables set up beneath the shade of some tamarind trees.
Lunch is a traditional Zanzibari meal and includes a selection of grilled fish, slipper lobster, squid, and rice, tamarind and coriander sauces. A gastronomic fruit tasting follows with a selection of between 10 to 15 different tropical fruits. Cold drinks are available throughout the day and include mineral water, sodas, and beer. Coffee and Amarula liqueur are also served after lunch. Toilets are available on the island.
When the tide allows there can be a visit a beautiful mangrove lagoon where it is possible to swim through the mangrove forest.
A return to Fumba by sails and arrive back at 6 p.m. in time to see the colourful African sunset.
Be advised that there are no formal changing facilities at Fumba so please wear your swimming things under your clothes. Also, be advised to bring waterproof shoes for boarding the dhows and to bring towels, sunscreen, and a spare T-shirt for snorkelling.

PRISON (CHANGUU) ISLAND
(1/2 DAY MORNING OR AFTERNOON)
Prison Island, located just 15 minutes by boat from Stonetown is a popular location for snorkeling because of the shallow depths, variety in coral and marine life, and lack of strong current.
You will be guided around the island on a small trail that goes past ruins. Look for the old prison and watch out for peacocks in the ruins courtyard. You will also pass ruins of an old laundry centre, a natural lagoon that can be quite beautiful if the tide is right and the old quarantine housing.
