After breakfast and a morning game drive, we drive back to Arusha, stop for an early lunch at a local restaurant, and head for the airport for our flight to Zanzibar!
Upon arrival we stop for a Zanzibar spice tour so you can learn why this beautiful island is known as “The Spice Island”.
Our tour starts with a drive through a profusion of greenery in the countryside seeing, smelling and tasting a variety of spices and mouthwatering tropical seasonal fruits such as jack fruit, pineapple, banana, green coconut juice, dourian, love apple, litche, soursop etc. Spices such as cloves, cardamon, cinnamon, black pepper, turmeric, nutmeg - are as exotic as their flavours. In addition to these fruits and spices, you will also have a chance to see the iodine plant, heena bush, ylang-ylang, the lipstick tree, cocoa, and coffee bean trees.
After your spice tour, we will visit the Kidichi Persian Baths - built in 1850 by Seyyid Said bin Sultan for his Persian wife Princess Scheherazade granddaughter of the Shah of Persia, the Maruhubi Palace Ruins - built by the third Sultan of Zanzibar Seyyid Barghash for his 99 concubines and the Dr Livingstone House - built in 1860 for Sultan Majid. Dr David Livingstone lived here before commencing on his last journey to the mainland interior.
After the tour, we will check into the Bluebay Beach Resort & Spa where you will make yourself at home for the next three nights.
