of the greatest things to do in Zanzibar, in order to get a true perceptive of
the island, is to take a walking tour. Stone Town is a UNESCO World Heritage
Centre and one of the most fascinating places you would love to do in Zanzibar.
Zanzibar is known as ‘The Spice Island’ because of spices grown on the island. You will see various spices like vanilla, turmeric, cumin, cinnamon and many others, used for cooking and as traditional medicines. Our guide will explain what the spices are used for and their unique properties.
Sail on a traditional dhow for a half-day tour of Prison Island. Located roughly 3.5 miles west of Stone Town, the island was once used to isolate rebellious slaves and later as a quarantine station for yellow fever victims. Nevertheless, the prison for which it is named has never housed a convict, and today the island is most famous for its collection of vulnerable Aldabra giant tortoises.
