Spice Tour (Half Day) This guided tour offers a look at small farms in the rural area that grows cloves, vanilla, nutmeg, cardamom and other spices as well as medicinal and ornamental plants and tropical fruit. It provides a rare experience and proves why Zanzibar is referred to as the Spice Island. It also includes a visit to the Persian Baths build in 1850 by Seyyid Said bin Sultan (first Sultan of Zanzibar) for his wife Princes Shehrzard (granddaughter of Fateh Ali Shah of Persia).
Safari Blue - Fumba (Full Day) This is a full day excursion on locally made traditional sailing dhows finished to the highest standard and fitted with outboard engines. Guests are collected from their hotel and transferred to the fishing village of Fumba, an ideal starting point to explore Menai Bay, now designated as a Marine Conversation Area. The Bay has a number of uninhabited islands and sandbanks and is frequented by humpback and bottlenose dolphins. You will then board the dhow and set off to explore the bay and find dolphins. This tour also includes snorkelling and lunch on a small island or a sand bank. After lunch there is an opportunity to join an experienced crew and sail on an ‘ngalawa’ or outrigger canoe made by hand from a single mango tree.
