Zanzibar Island

Zanzibar Extension 4 Days/3 Nights - Starting at $1,389 Per Person...

Zanzibar Island, the Spice Island a place whose name conjures up images of pirates, the smells of exotic spices and palm-studded white sand beaches and clear turquoise waters. The island is infused with Arabic, Indian and African cultures. Your 4 day 3 night extension will take you to Zanzibar’s picturesque beach resorts which offers its guests more than its beautiful white sand beaches. Visitors to this Indian Ocean isle can enjoy an abundance of water sports including diving and snorkeling or stretch out and soak up the sun on the beach. Optional excursions invite you to further explore Zanzibar’s pristine beaches or the bustling markets and narrow streets of Stone Town which encompasses both a rich history and cultural background. Stone Town is a gem to explore, a place overflowing with exotic spices, with its whitewashed old buildings, maze of winding alleys, mosques, and bustling bazaars.

Zanzibar can be visited year round although the best time to visit is June through October when the temperatures are drier and cooler. Temperatures are generally in the 80’s throughout the year and it is not uncommon for temperatures to range from low 80’s to 90’s from December to March. The year-round warm, tropical waters provide the perfect environment for swimming, snorkeling, diving and deep sea fishing making Zanzibar a wonderful holiday destination.

The Zanzibar extension is the perfect compliment to an exhilarating safari and can be integrated into any itinerary as the flight to Zanzibar is a short 1.5 hour nonstop flight from the Kilimanjaro airport in Arusha. We highly recommend the daily flight from Arusha to Zanzibar departing 12:45pm arriving Zanzibar at 2:20pm which is operated by Regional Air. The timing of this flight is perfect as you can enjoy a morning game drive in Tarangire or Lake Manyara before embarking on your journey to the sandy beaches of Zanzibar.

Day 1: After an early picnic lunch, enjoy the scenery as your party transfers to the Arusha Air Strip for your flight to Zanzibar on the Regional Air flight which is scheduled to depart Arusha at 12:45pm and arrive Zanzibar at 2:20pm. The airport is located about 1.5-hours from both the Lake Manyara and Tarangire park gates. Once you arrive in Zanzibar, an Earth’s Wonders Safaris representative will welcome you and transfer your party to your Zanzibar hotel with an en route narrated tour. Spend the remainder of the day at your leisure. Dinner and overnight accommodations at the beach resort of your choice or Ras Nungwi Beach Club.

Day 2-3: Enjoy the next two full days at the beach resort of your choice. Each respective resort offers a variety of water activities including snorkeling, sailing and swimming or you may prefer to sun tan and relax on Zanzibar’s pristine beaches. In addition to these water sports, there are also a variety of optional tours available including a historic and cultural tour of Stone Town, a Spice Farms Tour, and Jozani Forest Tour.

Dinner and overnight accommodations at the beach resort of your choice or Ras Nungwi Beach Club.
