6 Days 5 Night Zanzibar Excursion


Zanzibar is an amazing home for beach tours and holidays in the whole of East Africa. It is marvellous to vacate on some of the best Africa’s beaches on the famous Zanzibar Archipelago. The ambience at these calm white sand palm beaches smells only of peace and tranquillity. Most interesting is that the various beach hotels and lodges are internationally standardised. You will find all categories of accommodation to suit your lifestyle from upscale luxury, average luxury to budget and cheap but decent lodgings. You can also visit the neighbouring Mafia Archipelago with a more tranquil ambience offering you private small intimate lodgings. You will get high value at Mafia if you desire to have a personalised serene vacation possibly with only your loved one on isolated sandbars surrounded by shallow coral seas.

Day 2: Prison Island, Nakupenda Sandbank

At 0900am you will be taken from your hotel for a full day at Prison Island and Nakupenda (I love you) Sandbank. Prison Island was formerly owned by an Arab and was privately used as a place of detention for disobedient slaves. It was built in 1893 as a central prison for Zanzibar, hence the name “PRISON ISLAND”. You will be able to see Giant Tortoises, Dikdik, Peacock, Prison Chamber, Mangrove Forest and perhaps swim and snorkel if interested. In the early afternoon you will move to Nakupenda Island and sandbank (30 minutes) by boat. This is the ideal place near stone town where you can relax, swim, and snorkel while enjoying your BBQ of seafood, soft and hard drinks, tropical fruits under the shade of built umbrellas. Lunch will be ready at 1pm. In the evening you will be brought at the shores for an hour break before joining a sunset cruise at 5-7pm (optional).
