The Zanzibar region
Visitors can explore the heritage and history of the famous Stone Town, now designated a World Heritage Site. This includes visits to the city market, the old Anglican Church located on the site of the old Slave Market and the National Museum of Zanzibar.
Later visits to the Old British Consulate, the Old Fort dating back since 1700, House of Wonders and Livingstone House give visitors an insight into Zanzibar rich history. Leisurely walks through the winding alleys and narrow streets will take you to the small exotic bazaars and local curio shops passing along remarkable carved wooden doors where Zanzibar is also known for.
Spice Plantations and Farms: Visits to the spice plantations will dazzle your senses with fresh spices. On the way visitors can stop at the old Sultan Rest House to view the Persian Baths built in 1850 by the first Sultan of Zanzibar for his wife Princess Shehzard. A unique opportunity to visit the local farms and talk to farmers who will show you the traditional spices and fruits of Zanzibar.
Jozani Forest: The only remaining natural forest on Unguja Island is a heaven for nature lovers! With a rich variety of bird species, Jozani also offers the unique opportunity of seeing the very rare Red Colobus Monkey, which is indigenous to the Island of Zanzibar.
The Matemwe area
A wonderful opportunity to meet the local people of the Island in the nearby fishermen village.
Visit the homes of the local villagers and meet the children in their school. This is a unique perspective into the true culture and way of life of Zanzibar people. Ask our staff to guide you in the village and to the lively fish market.

Villa Loiki is just amazing. The location is like parade and the house is beautifully appointed with the decor carefully chosen with beautiful African prints and upholstery. When we arrived on New Year's Eve they had Christmas Trees up with fairy lights. The children jumped straight into the lovely swimming pool. It is right on the beach where the water is turquoise blue. There is complete privacy. The food by Juma and Paul was amazing. We had Lobster for New Year's Eve. Everything was so fresh and the flavours with the use of spices was amazing. Every morning there was freshly squeezed juice and freshly baked cakes or bread. There was lots of exotic fruit on the table. We had eggs cooked whatever way we wanted. The food was do good I brought home a cookbook from zanzibar hoping I can recreate it.
Amina and the the staff were so lovely and always working away quietly in the background. When you were having breakfast they made up your beds and when you were having dinner in the evening they pulled the mosquito nets, turned on the air conditioning and pulled the curtains.
Everything was laid on so professionally. When we landed in from Tanzania, Mr Bhakal picked us up at airport and drove us to the Villa where we were greeted by all the staff with fresh coconuts where the top was sliced off and we drank the milk through a straw.
We had a driver during the week who took us to Stone Town and on another day he took us to the Spice Tour. The Spice Tour was fantastic and very interesting. I guess it opened my eyes and spices are no longer just something that comes in a packet. Our driver took us out on the motor boat to snorkel at Mnemba Island. Amazing snorkelling. So many tropical fish and coral reefs.
Mianne the manager was tireless to make sure we had everything we needed at all times.
Zanzibar is a beautiful Island. We went to Stone Town where we had a lovely meal at the Archipelago restaurant. We strolled the shops and the markets where we bought fresh fruit, and vegetables. Juma got all our fish and meat fresh from local famers and fishermen. Mr Baker took my husband to the wine shop in Stone Town and there he was able to buy all his favourite wines - a Chateau Laffitte, Rustenberg from South Africa, Gigondas from France, Barolo from Italy. We were surprised to see such a fine selection of wines.
We were never harassed or bothered in Zanzibar or Tanzania as we expect in some European countries.
I can't start to describe how lovely the Zanzibar people are. They are beautiful looking. Tall with high cheek bones and graceful appearance. They are a very dignified people and work hard.
I have amazing photos from Zanzibar. I would love to go back!
