Spice Up Your Life on Zanzibar Island

Standard DreamTrip
Epic adventures await as you tour a local farm to learn about Zanzibar's world-famous spices, explore UNESCO-protected Stone Town and snorkel at Mnemba Island — all while staying at a fabulous oceanfront hotel! Book by December 25.

About Your Trip

Get ready to be wowed in sun-kissed Zanzibar, where you'll delight your senses with a visit to a local spice farm — smell and taste popular varieties and learn about the medicinal uses of certain spices. Next up is Stone Town to visit the former slave quarters and Old Fort of Zanzibar. Once a prison, the fort is now an open-air venue used for festivals and performances. You’ll also go on a thrilling daytrip to Mnemba Island, where you'll snorkel in crystal-clear waters, with a chance to swim with dolphins. Before the afternoon is over, feast on a delicious barbecue lunch on the beach! 

What we love:

  • Discovering why Zanzibar is known as the “Spice Island.” Although its area is only 950 square miles (1,528 square kilometers), it produces over 80% of the world's cloves — it’s also one of the world’s leading producers of nutmeg and cinnamon.
  • Touring Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its remarkably well-preserved example of a traditional Swahili trading town. 
  • Snorkeling at 2 different spots around Mnemba Island and swimming in pristine turquoise waters — perhaps accompanied by dolphins!
