Day 1: Welcome to Zanzibar!
The driver of the Blue Oyster hotel will pick you up from the Airport and drive you to the East coast of the Island where the hotel is located.
The Blue oyster is a great place with stunning views overlooking the ocean. This mid-range lodge is ideal for people who are on a budget but want to enjoy the nice beaches of the East coast.
The Blue Oyster is a small and cosy family-run hotel, directly adjacent to the white sandy beach of Zanzibar. It is situated in Jambiani, a small traditional fishing village on the south east coast. As a responsible tourism certified hotel we place a strong emphasis on co-operating and working together with the local community. You'll stay here for 4 nights.

Optional activity: visit to Stone town
What you cannot miss during your stay on Zanzibar Island is a tour of Stone town. This beautiful city is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site for a reason! What characterizes Stone town? Think of spices on colorful markets, but also an urban sprawl of historic buildings, shops, offices, apartment blocks, crowded slums and middle-class neighbourhoods. In the historic quarter you can wander for hours through a maze of narrow streets, easily losing yourself in centuries of history. Each twist and turn brings something new – a former palace, a Persian bathhouse, a tumbledown ruin, a coral-stone mansion with carved doors and latticework balconies, or a school full of children chanting verses from the Quran. Your hotel can organize a historic tour / spice tour for you but everything is within walking distance so if you prefer, you could explore on your own.
Your hotel organizes several optional excursions at your own cost in stown town.
- Historic city tour
- Behind the Swahili scenes
- Visit the traditional market
- Dhow (traditional boat) sunset cruise
- Concert and dinner at Mtoni Palace
