Zanzibar Island

Zanzibar is world famous tourism destination and for good reason. The modest sized island, easily accessed from Dar es Salaam, is packed full of culture, history, nature, all surrounded by stunning tropical beaches. The main urban area, Stone Town, is a historic centre of commerce with Swahili and Islamic influences. The famous intricately carved doors that can be found while wandering down its winding lanes, amongst frequent minarets, creates an environment wholly unique from elsewhere in Tanzania. On the other end of the island villages such as Nungwi and Kendwa feature expansive beaces and modern hotels.

Tour Itinerary

Trip Cost - $790

As part of our planning process, we help customize the sample trip itinerary to suit your respective interests and needs.

Mkalimu's trip cost estimates are inclusive of accommodation, transportation, entrance fees, and guiding services. They do not include food costs and gratuities. We price our trips based on the use of public transport or private taxis, and modest but well-maintained hotels with AC rooms and mosquito nets. We are more than happy to quote prices on request for trip options that involve higher end accommodation and private vehicles.
