Day 5: Safari Blue Tour
After breakfast we drive to Fumba beach for safari blue tour. This is a full day trip on locally constructed sailing dhows, fitted with outboard motors, marine VHF radios, life jackets and other security requirements. The dhow anchors in a safe and shallow area to allow for snorkeling. High quality snorkeling materials are provided, and a large range of sizes is available. Lunch is served on a sand bank or on one of the many uninhabited island in the region.
A traditional dish of barbecued fish, rice, lentils and fish curry is served. Chilled fruit juice, mineral water, and bottled soft drinks are available throughout the tour.

Day 6: City and Spice Tours
After breakfast we drive to Kizimbani for the spice tour. Explore the island and its hidden treasures at a relaxed pace. Travel deep into the interior to see the fragrant spice plantations. Discover how pods, bark, buds and berries are harvested and dried. The intoxicating aromas of fresh cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg will delight the senses and stimulate appetites, so be sure to sample the sweet tropical fruits, fresh seafood and zesty curries Zanzibar is famous for. This is the cheapest place to buy locally made perfumes, oils and spice rings.
If you are interested we can arrange spice lunch just after the tour without any extra cost but this should be stated in advance (before we leave at the hotel) as we will need some time for preparation.
After lunch we drive to Zanzibar Stone Town tour with our guide for Zanzibar Stone Town tour. The architecture here has been shaped by generations of explorers and spice traders and provides many interesting photography opportunities.
