It is also a true birdwatchers paradise – 436 species having been identified. Among the resident birds are different species of hornbill, kingfishers and sunbirds. Migrants’ e.g. the white stork also visit Ruaha. There are lodges in Ruaha and several park-run public campsites.

Prison Island

Prison Island gets its name from the prison which was built on it in 1893. It was never actually used as a prison but rather as a quarantine hospital. After a 30min boat ride with a beautiful view of Stone Town’s skyline, guests will meet the contemporary inhabitants of the island and the giant tortoises which were banned from the city of Stone Town which are more than 200 years old. We offer Prison Island as a half day tour that can be combined with a tour of Stone Town: Prisoners of Stone Town.

Spice Farm: A tour of one of Zanzibar’s Spice Farms is a must-do on the island. During a walking tour through the farm, guests will be shown and explained each and every spice one can find in Zanzibar. Guests will get a chance to sample majority of the fruits grown on the island and some coconut. We offer this tour as a half day trip, in combination with Stone Town or Jozani Forest & Butterfly Center.

During a guided tour through the Jozani National Park, guests will see the different species of monkeys, impressive trees and plants. Guest will uncover the magical world of the Zanzibari mangroves while walking along the wooden trail. This tour is combined with a visit to the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly and see them flying in close proximity. We offer this tour as a half day tour or as a full day tour including local lunch in combination with Stone Town (Zanzibar’s Nature and its capital).

One Thousand Hands Of Zanzibar

On this half day tour the guests will get the chance to see the typical village life of Zanzibar and the turtle sanctuary in Nungwi. The guests will be taken to all the places where the real and normal life of a typical Zanzibarian happens. What they do with their hands is incredible.

Safari Mnemba Atoll

On this full day tour, the guests will be picked up from their respective lodging and head with a dhow from Kendwa to the stunning Mnemba Atoll – and with every possibility of seeing and swimming with dolphins along the way, our guests will stop at Mnemba Kitchwani Reef and at Coral Gardens for snorkeling. This amazing reef with steep slopes offers some great under water topography and a chance to see amazing corals and a lot of different species of fish. At the end of the trip our guests will enjoy a mouthwatering lunch and relax on the beautiful secluded beach of Muyuni Beach.

Sunset Cruise

This 2 hour boat trip can either start from the Northern Coast of the Island, to watch the world famous sunset of Zanzibar’s North Coast or it can start from Stone Town where guests can enjoy the best view of the capital from the water.  Snacks and drinks are provided on the traditional wooden dhow and if the wind allows the crew, they will sail like the traditional fishing boats while you listen to traditional Zanzibar music.

The Rock Restaurant

The unique location of this restaurant is an attraction in itself. If the tide is high, guests can use a boat to get to the restaurant – or even swim; and when the tide is low, they can simply walk.

Combine this tour with a private dinner on the beach in Kiwengwa

Sit back and enjoy the sunset while the chefs prepare the best of Zanzibar for you on the grill. Freshly caught Lobster, Squid, and Octopus.
