Today we are bound for the enigmatic, intoxicating Isles of Zanzibar. Departing our accommodation early we make for the ferry terminal and transfer to paradise. We are met in Stone Town and taken on a guided tour of a nearby spice plantation discovering the many plants that flourish in this verdant, tropical environment. You can sample spices picked straight from the plant including fresh cloves and cinnamon bark before stopping for lunch at a local home.

We have two nights staying on the powder white sands of North Beach. The most beautiful, isolated beaches in Zanzibar lie to the north and east of the island. With sparkling turquoise water and silvery sand fringed with palm trees, these beaches are nothing short of paradise. There are plenty of options available here. Relax and take it easy, indulge with a massage or go diving and snorkelling.

Today we return to Stone Town where you have the afternoon to explore.

The UNESCO-listed town has changed little over the past 200 years. It boasts a labyrinth of walled streets, winding alleys, bustling markets and grand crumbling architecture. You can spend many idle hours simply wandering the streets, shopping at the bazaars and admiring the intriguingly decorated elephant-proof doors before sitting down to watch the sunset with a cold beer and a sumptuous seafood feast. If food is your thing, make sure you check out the excellent night market on the promenade which serves traditional local fare.

In contrast to our previous night’s stay, Kande Beach is a buzzing hive of activity. Its beautiful beach and lakeside bar has a lively atmosphere and as one of the big overland havens. Here you are likely to be in for a party or two!
