Spice Up Your Life in Zanzibar

Sugar & spice — and everything nice! — await in Zanzibar, where you’ll visit a local farm to learn about the island’s spices, explore ancient forts in Stone Town and go on an exciting boat trip to snorkel & swim!

About Your Trip

Prepare to be wowed as you set off on 2 epic adventures on this DreamTrip to sun-kissed Zanzibar. First, delight your senses and discover why Zanzibar is known as the “Spice Island” when you set foot on a local spice farm to smell and taste the island’s popular varieties. Your seasoned guide will also show you an array of plants and describe the medicinal uses of certain spices. After stopping at a local restaurant for lunch, you’ll continue to Stone Town, boasting 19th-century architecture that reflects Swahili culture. After exploring the past slave quarters, you’ll head to the Old Fort of Zanzibar. Once a prison, the fort is now an open-air venue used for festivals and performances.

The fun isn’t over yet! You’ll also go on a thrilling daytrip to Mnemba Island, where you'll snorkel and have the chance to swim with dolphins. Before the afternoon is over, you’ll feast on a delicious barbecue lunch on the beach!

During your free time, why not take advantage of all your hotel has to offer? Lounge at the newly renovated pool or try your hand at windsurfing, paddleboarding or kayaking. Then, rent a bike — for free! — and cruise around town. Or, pamper yourself with a rejuvenating treatment at Maua Spa. Want to venture away from the hotel for a few hours? Gather up the kids and make your way to Nungwi Beach for some fun in the sun. History buffs can learn more about the city’s dark past at Prison Island, a former camp where people with diseases were sent. Foodies can delight in a trip to Forodhani Gardens, a nighttime food market that sells fresh produce, fish and meats.

What we love:
• Although Zanzibar’s area is only 950 square miles (1,528 square kilometers), it produces over 80% of the world's cloves. The Spice Island is also one of the world’s leading producers of nutmeg and cinnamon.
• Stone Town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000 — it’s a remarkably well-preserved example of a traditional Swahili trading town.
• The Old Fort of Zanzibar is now the headquarters for the annual Zanzibar International Film Festival.

Destination

Tropical perfection meets vibrant, Stone Town culture on the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar. Let warm waters and sugary beaches set the scene for exciting local fare on the Spice Island. Fans of bold flavors and other zests will love Zanzibar, from its fragrant market to its range of locally cultivated spices.

The island’s valuable crops made it a popular port for international traders. Omani Arabs constructed the Old Fort of Zanzibar in the early 1700s, after they wrested it from Portuguese control in 1698. Today, Zanzibar is a popular tourist destination and continues to grow world-class spices.
