THINGS TO DO ON ZANZIBAR
STONE TOWN: Zanzibar town is located midway along the West Coast of the island. The old part of the town, known as Stone Town, is composed of a network of shady, winding narrow alleys between old stone buildings with ornately decorated entrances and balconies. Numerous tiny shops here sell everything under the sun. Along the seafront are located several luxury hotels, the old Sultan’s Palace (House of Wonder), the old fort, restaurants and the docks. In the evening dining at one of the seafront or rooftop restaurants is a magical experience.
SPICE TOUR: In the middle of the island you can visit the Spice plantation where still today many different spices such as cloves, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, lemon grass and tropical fruits are grown.
DIVING: The magnificent coral reefs surrounding Zanzibar are a snorkeller and scuba divers paradise. Everyone can find something to satisfy them exploring this enchanting underwater world. Most beach hotels offer snorkelling equipment and boats to take you out to the coral reefs that surround the island. Here you can swim in a variety of depths of water – from one metre to 30 metres in depth. Many scuba diving centres are located around the island offering taster courses, and a variety of advanced courses leading up to PADI or similar qualifications such as Open Water Diver or even Master Diver. Wrecks and deep coral walls offer superb locations to view a great variety of fish, whales, dolphins, eels and coral formations.
DOLPHINS: Swimming and playing with dolphin is another wonderful experience. Several dolphin groups are found around the island, but mainly near the south tip. Good swimmers will be able to get very close and even touch the dolphins. This is a most rewarding half-day trip that can be arranged from most parts of the island.
FISHING – Sailing and deep-sea game fishing are also popular activities that can be arranged readily at most of the beach hotels
