Tours at Mbweni Ruins Hotel
These romantic ruins, from the era of Livingstone can be explored in their lush botanic garden setting on various Zanzibar tours. The garden is so tranquil, with a nature trail winding through the grounds. Over the years an effort has been made to provide a personal and discreet service in one of the most beautiful, natural and historic locations in Zanzibar.
Zanzibar Spice Tours:
Visit gardens and farms in the centre of the island, where more than 40 species of banana are grown. You will see and taste the spices, tropical fruits and medicinal plants of Tanzania. The clove, which made Zanzibar famous, is not a fruit but the dried bud of the clove flower. Black pepper is a climber, clambering over bushes and trees of other species, while vanilla is an orchid.
Zanzibar City Tours:
A car and guide will take you on Zanzibar tours of Stone Town, taking in the outstanding features; the Old Fort, the House of Wonders, the Palace Museum and the Anglican Cathedral and the site of the former Slave Market. You may visit the fruit market and wander through the narrow streets of the old city.
Traditional Zanzibar dhow tours to the Islands:
Spend a wonderful day on a traditional wooden dhow. You will be picked up from Kilele Square in Shangani, to sail to some of the small islands off Stone Town. The reef here is home to an abundance of colourful fish, birds and other marine life including the Zanzibar Butterfly Fish, Chaetodon zanzibarians, Pincushion Starfish, octopus, giant clam and lobster. You will have a seafood barbecue lunch on shore and snorkel and sunbathe before returning to Stone Town.
