4 Days 3 nights-Zanzibar

 

4 Days 3 nights-Zanzibar

Its perfumed air caresses travelers with scents of the spices that have grown in abundance throughout the island since time began. We board a flight in Nairobi or in Arusha and we’re off to paradise with a choice: a hotel with the exotic Stone Town or a romantic beach resort outside of town— both absolutely enchanting!

DAY 2;

The day begins with breakfast and a serene view over the Indian Ocean to the endless horizon. A walking tour is the best way to experience the town, which exists today much as it did in the days when the “Isle of Spices” was a great trading centre known the world over for spices, timber and slaves.

The market place is alive with vendors who hawk their exotic wares in a multitude of languages, as many as the intense palette of colors in their fabrics and trinkets for sale.

As we move away from the raucous market, the winding streets grow serene and mysterious with whitewashed houses, ornately carved wooden doors and balconies studded with brass. We visit the Zanzibar Museum and Old Fort.

 Lunch is slow and relaxed, followed by an afternoon spent visiting the plantations where cinnamon, cardamom and strong Arabic coffees are grown. And, of course, we see the cloves—the gold of Zanzibar— the world’s finest and most desired spice.

 Day 3: Jozani Forest

There are few places in the world where the red Colobus monkey can be found, and this morning we travel across the island through quaint villages and lush vegetation to just such a place—the enchanting Jozani Forest.

These Old World monkeys leap acrobatically throughout the arboreal canopy in troops of up to one hundred. With extinction a distinct possibility, they are a privilege to behold.

Day 4 : Zanzibar – Fly Nairobi

Today brings a farewell to the island. Depending upon flight times, which can vary being in a splendidly far-flung outpost of civilization, we may have time for one last trip to the marketplace for that fantastically carved teakwood chest or supply of intensely scented pomanders as a heady reminder of our sojourn in this ageless Swahili paradise.
