What to see in Zanzibar?

Best day trips in Zanzibar

It would be wrong to travel to one of the most beautiful places in the world and to go back home without really knowing it. In Zanzibar, you only have to choose what to see. This is why Fruit & Spice Wellness Resort organized a diverse day trip program to be personalized to meet all guests’ needs. Culturally and naturally important places are very close to our resort. Kizimkazi village gives access to the dolphin point. Thanks to the tide, you can get to White Island. Close to Stone Town, a world heritage, there are many Spice Farms. And then, there are Prison Island, Jozani Forest and many other possibilities to take part to a real safari, in total safety. It is up to you!

Stone Town

Departure: 9:00 AM – Return: 2:00 PM

Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000, Stone Town, also known as Zanzibar City, is the cultural center of the island. The urban plan has remained the same and represents the best example of Swahili trade settlement in East Africa. From the Darajani market to the Anglican church, from the walk through the gardens to Forodhani and the shopping in Shangani, everything in this city reminds of old history.

Prison Island

Departure: 9:00 AM – Return: 2:00 PM

At first, it was built to be home to a prison, but it was soon converted to lazaretto for patients suffering from yellow fever. Today, it has been turned into a resort and the island is home to a Seychelles giant turtles’ colony. The centenarian turtles are famous for their dimensions and their longevity. Before entering the structure, you can enjoy the beach surrounding the island and see the beautiful starfishes living there.

Spice Tour

Departure: 9:00 AM – Return: 2:00 PM

Spice Farms are located all around Stone Town. Zanzibar is spices’ island. Over the centuries, it’s gained fame and wealth thanks to the trade of spices and became the capital city of the Oman Empire.
