Day 1: Welcome to Zanzibar!

The driver of Essque Zalu will pick you up from the Airport and drive you to Nungwi a lovely town on the North- coast of the Island where the hotel is located.

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
