Overview

On this 6 days Zanzibar holiday you’ll cruise on your own privately chartered dhow between Stone Town, the Fumba Peninsula and Kizimkazi in southwest Zanzibar. First you’ll enjoy a couple of nights in the UNESCO World Heritage listed Stone Town – an eclectic fusion of African, Indian, Arabian and European influences, with numerous attractions to explore.

From Stone Town you will cruise and sail south to the pristine Fumba Peninsula, enjoying a day of snorkelling, swimming and lazing off sandbanks and Indian Ocean desert isles. After a couple of days chilling at Fumba, you’ll experience a full day private dhow voyage through the Menai Bay Conservation Area to Kizimkazi. With more opportunities for snorkelling and blissful unwind, you’ll feel decidedly energized if you spot playful dolphins during your cruise!

Your final nights will be spent relaxing at Kizimkazi. This holiday is based on superior-style accommodation, staying at The Swahili House, Fumba Beach Lodge and Unguja Lodge.
