Zanzibar is an archipelago made up of 4 large islands and several smaller islands. The main island, Unguja, has long been a centre of maritime trade. Its capital, Stone Town, where much of the architecture is still well preserved, you can breathe and feel the footprints of the rich and cosmopolitan history of this city, a unique place where East and West converge. Outside the city, the island abounds with endless white sand beaches popular with kite surfers, but also wild, rocky and quiet coves.
Join us as we explore the island, its various coasts, forests, mosques and more! This trip is for anyone who enjoys adventure, food and good company. We've planned beach days, boat rides, mosque visits, forest trekking, a spice farm tour and more!
As always, we ask that you travel with heart open and spirit ready!
