The excursion starts at the fishing village of Fumba, 30 mins. drive from Stone Town. On arrival at Fumba, clients are given a briefing on the day and a life jacket demo.After, board the dhows and set off to explore the bay and find the dolphins. Dolphins are spotted on 85% of the trips. Later in the morning we stop on a sandbank where we set up sunshades and fit the clients with snorkelling equipment. Guides, who can safely lead the snorkelling session and show points of interest, accompany the clients.
Go beyond Stone Town to experience local life in the different neighbourhoods of Zanzibar City,from there head over to a local woodworking shop where beautiful traditional handicrafts are made, including the intricate carved doors prevalent in Stone Town. The route continues to one of the biggest markets in town to taste dafu, refreshing juice from a whole coconut. Explore the different sections, taking in the amazing selection of exotic local fruits and vegetables, fish, and meat.
This three and a half-hour tour commences with a visit to Zanzibar's colorful market. Alive with the buzz of locals bartering fresh vegetables and baskets of tropical fruit, amongst the heady smell of Jack fruit (and many other exotic fruits) we continue on to the site of the cathedral built in 1874. The cathedral signifies a potent time in Zanzibar's history and stands on the sight of a past slave market, its high altar standing on the exact site of the whipping post. Slavery was abolished in 1873 through a decree passed by the then current Sultan of Zanzibar.
