Today you will be visiting the historic Stone Town which is about an hour away. The rest of the day you can explore the maze of streets with whitewashed coral stone buildings and the well-known, beautifully carved teak doors. You can browse the shops for curios or select aromatic spices from the bazaars.
Zanzibar used to be the headquarters for the slave trade and where explorers such as Speke, Burton, Livingstone and Grant passed through. They then continued on to the interior of East Africa. But you can learn more about the history at the Old Fort, The Slave Markets or the House of Wonders (named this because it was the first house that had electricity and running water!) Here you will also find the National Museum of History and Culture.
There is also the famous Spice Tour which is a highlight for many visitors. You can taste the spices such as cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg etc. Your guide will also point out the rare plant species of the henna bush and lipstick tree. At the end of a long day of exploring you can enjoy a dawa cocktail and watch the dhows sail into the sunset.
