Zanzibar offers a range of interesting activities. Depending on your choice and interests we have selected a few not to be missed tours and activities in and around Stone Town. Local Zanzibari operators carry out each activity to make sure you will enjoy the local view of 'their' Zanzibar and at the same time empower local community by supporting their business. Check out the Tours in Stone Town, Tours in Zanzibar and our recommended Island & Ocean Tours. Or maybe you prefer to explore the island by yourself with your own car (with or without driver) or rent a bicycle.
We also organise transfers all around the island; an airport pick up or drop off or a transfer to/from your accommodation elsewhere in Zanzibar.
Tours in Stonetown
If you would like to find out more about the culture of Zanzibar, the 'Historical City Tour', where you will be taken to all the highlights of Stone Town and 'Behind the Swahili Scenes' where you will visit two local markets and the recycle workplace Chako, are fascinating tours to do. The Dhow Sunset Tours takes you along the shore of Stone Town during sunset.
Tours in Zanzibar
If you would like to explore the island from Stone Town there are several different possibilities, depending on your interest. We have made a nice selection: from the 'traditional' spice tour where you visit a spice farm and learn all about the spices to a more active bicycle tour. It is also possible to create your own daytrip with a private car and driver. We are happy to help you in finding the best option for you!
Island & Ocean Tours
These tours all include a swim in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. From a full day Safari Blue with a beautiful BBQ lunch, to a more exclusive day trip to the rewarded Chumbe Island. There are some small islands close to the shores of Stone Town which are well worth to visit. Our Islet Tour, which includes BBQ on the sandbank, snorkelling at Bawe and a visit to Prison Island for the giant tortoises is a beautiful way to explore them all.
Rental and transfers
If you would like to explore Zanzibar on your own pace you can rent a bicycle, motorbike or car. It is also possible to explore the island with a driver, who will stay with you during the entire day, making sure you will visit all your places of interest.
