Itinerary

Morning at 09:00hrs, your tour starts with a pick up from the Hotel (depending on your hotel location) and drive to Stone town and Jozani – Chwaka Bay National Park for a full day tour. 

 

In Stone town, you will see the National Museum of Zanzibar (rebuilt in 1883) which is also referred to as the Peace Memorial Museum. The museum holds a wide collection of the island’s natural history and artifacts. Then you will walk to the Forodhani Gardens, where you will see the former British Consulate, a place where explorers such as Dr. Livingston and Stanley came for administrative matters before explorations.

 

You will also explore the Old Fort, which is situated a few meters away, and the tallest building in Zanzibar, House of Wonders, which was built by the Sultan as a ceremonial and administrative building. With a refreshing walk in the narrow streets we will explore the old houses, most of which are older than 150 years. 

Later you will visit  Maruhubi where we will see the Ruins of Sultan Barghash’s Palace

 

While passing along bazaar streets towards the famous Freddie Mercury House. 

See the old slave market, fruit market, and spice market — don’t miss the classic Zanzibar curved doors decorating the stone town.  

 

Later on, you will visit Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park.

The 2,500-hectare park contains diverse habitats, including groundwater forest, coral rag forest, mangrove swamps, and salt marshes. 

Venture into the jungle of Jozani Forest to spot the rare species of Red Colobus Monkeys (the most famous and endearing residents of the park) as they swing and howl in the trees.

Jozani forest lies in a shallow trough in a fossil coral bed between the mangrove filled bays of Chwaka and Uzi. The park is home to many unique animals such as Adder’s duiker, Sykes’ monkeys, and bush babies.

 

 

Butterfly Center: 

Pass by the enchanting butterfly center that protects numerous over 50 species of Zanzibar indigenous butterfly and 40 species of birds. 

This center is a huge tropical garden with net walls and roof. You can see the various lifecycle stages of the butterfly, including beautiful cocoons. 

Profits support local conservation and community projects. 

 

Seasonal flooding and a high-water table have given rise to a unique groundwater forest.
