PLACES TO VISIT: ZANZIBAR
To kick off your Zanzibar visit, here’s some history: When the Portuguese arrived in 1498, they discovered a series of independent towns on the coast inhabited by Arabs but not politically linked to Arabia. Their relations with these Arabs were mostly hostile, but by the sixteenth century, they had firmly established their power and were ruling with the assistance of tributary Arab sultans. This system was in place until 1631, when the Sultan of Mombasa massacred the European residents.
We’ve created a special Spice Tour that includes not only in-depth information about spices, but also organically grown herbs and a detailed description of their traditional uses in medicine, cosmetics, and cooking. Following this informative tour, we enjoy a sumptuous lunch at our guides’ home, where you can sample the spices and fruits.
We will transport you to your beach resort after lunch.
You pass through Jozani Forest, the last remaining habitat of the rare endemic Red Colobus Monkey. You walk through Jozani Chwaka National Park with a local guide, looking for rare monkeys. You can also walk down the boardwalk to the fascinating Mangrove Ecosystem.
The beach that surrounds this area, which is located on the island’s northernmost point, is truly breathtaking. Azure waters and white sands are what await those that come here. The only disadvantage is that many of the hotels are perched on the coral cliffs that run north from the village and, as a result, lose their beaches during high tide. However, in general, this is not a problem, and with the village’s small backpacker community, this is a great place to go if you want to get out of the hotel for a drink or two.
Zanzibar,the majestic spice island of the Indian Ocean. Unguja and Pemba are the two main islands. Various cultures have influenced Zanzibar to become what it is today over centuries. Sumerians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Phonecians, Indians, Chinese, Persians, Portuguese, Omani Arabs, Dutch, and British all settled here at some point and influenced the local culture, resulting in the current fusion.
After your beautiful 8 Days beach Holiday, Our Zanzibar Representative will pick you up from your Hotel and will take you to Abeid Amani Karume International Airport for your Flight back Home
