Arrival in Zanzibar | Discover Stone Town Night Market

  • Chase your first Zanzibar sunset glimmering upon the vibrant waters of the Indian Ocean while wandering the Forodhani Gardens. When dusk approaches, bask in the ambiance of rich aromas filling the air as the local food vendors light up their gas grills to prepare their novel dishes. Once the intersection where the trade of spices, slaves, and ivory took place, the lively Stone Town Night Market offers a unique blend of food cultures from Persia, India, Malaysia, China, and Indonesia. Feed your culinary curiosity with a limitless selection of Zanzibar pizza, gigantic falafels & gyros, grilled seafood kebabs, and fresh-squeezed sugar cane juices. Secure a spot along the pier to enjoy your feast while observing the animated rhythms of the local island life. 

A Historical Discovery of Stown Town & Prison Island

  • Discover the historical heart of Zanzibar with a guided walking experience through Stone Town. A magical spot where the influences of many cultures blend together to create a rich & vibrant atmosphere. Uncover the humble roots of iconic musician, Freddie Mercury, and take a trip down memory lane in his birth house. Honor African history while learning about the shocking realities of the slave trade at the Old Slave Market. Then, pass through the oldest building in Zanzibar, known as the Arab Fort or House of Wonders. Afterward, take a boat ride over to Prison Island to experience what it was like to be quarantined for yellow fever in the 1800s. Catch a glimpse of the giant tortoises that roam the wildlife sanctuary, where they can live up to 200 years.

Sail the Indian Ocean to Your Very Own Private Island

  • Get ready for a full day of sun soaking while sailing the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean on your own private dhow (a traditional sailboat). Experience the age-old traditions of the local sailors as you cruise the sea until reaching your private island. Take a refreshing dip in the sea or a contemplative walk along the white sandy shores. Strike up a friendly conversation with your local guides as they prepare a delicious seafood BBQ loaded with local spices from the island. Sit back, relax, and sip on a Tanzanian beer while enjoying a day in paradise.

An Exclusive Traditional Cooking Experience on a Spice Plantation

  • Immerse yourself in a thrilling cultural experience as you discover the origins of traditional spices used by the local islanders for centuries. Roam the Zanzibar market with your local guide and visit the vegetable farm to hand-pick fresh ingredients for your private African cooking class. Watch in suspense as a local harvester climbs way up high to grab your coconuts from the tree. Indulge in the refreshing taste of local tropical fruits. And learn about the skill & hard work it takes to grow an abundance of rich spices custom to the island. After an exciting time at the plantation, it’s time to put your cooking skills to the test. Head back to the kitchen to chef up a traditional Zanzibar meal as your private instructor guides you step-by-step through the process. Once your delicious masterpiece is complete, celebrate your accomplishment as everyone gathers around to share an intimate 4-course meal specially prepared by you. 

A Safari Adventure in the Serengeti

  • Fly over to the Serengeti National Park to catch a glimpse of Africa’s most enchanting wildlife. Explore the vastness of the African Savanna as your local safari driver takes you on an experience of a lifetime to witness the park’s Big 5. Get up close & personal with the elephants drinking from the river. Watch closely for the lions and leopards basking in the African sun. Marvel at the large herd of buffalos traveling together in synchronous rhythm. And in special cases, have a rare sighting of the endangered rhinoceros roaming the plains. Expand your knowledge as your expert guide fills you in on all the details about the flora and fauna that make up this special ecosystem.
