Day 6
A visit to the north of Zanzibar can be very rewarding, this is where you will one the dhow boat workshops that you can visit. Dhow bots are local sailing boats using for fishing. While in the area you could also visit the turtle conservation project that is fascinating.

Day 10
Day at leisure in Stone Town, one activitiy that is popular in the team here is heading over to prison island to explore what was a slavery prison but now houses ruins of the prison but also has a good number of giant tortoise, introduced from the Seychelles, as well as some excellent snorkelling around the island.
Day 11
You will be picked up today, at a time to coincide with your flights, and taken to the airport for your flights back to the UK.

Relax, breathe deeply and enjoy the delightful sights, smells and sounds that Zanzibar has to offer through this simple but brilliant itinerary. As you would expect, the soft, sandy beaches are plentiful and the sea is warm and clear: perfect for some serious rest and relaxation. Look a little closer, however, and you will find a fascinating place full of history, wonder and culture below the surface. With a myriad of sea-based activities available, from wind surfing to kite boarding, snorkelling, scuba diving and more, there also inland activities including visiting spice farms, turtle nesting conservation projects, local boat building centres and the Jozani forest in the centre of Zanzibar, home to the endemic red colobus monkey.

The last two nights are spent in the culturally and architecturally enthralling Stone Town, a warren of winding streets with huge and intricately carved wooden doors. The House of Wonders, Palace Museum, Forodhani food market and the Anglican church are all well worth a visit, as is the seafront, which is only a short boat ride away from the intriguing small prison island. Do as much or as little as you please, no matter what you will return home feeling rested and relaxed with some great memories.
