SFL Family Zanzibar Stone Town & Coast

The Spice Island of Zanzibar is the perfect destination to explore and relax with your family to round off your African adventures


A trip to Zanizbar is an ideal way to end your East African trip. Exotic spices, turquoise waters, white sand beaches and a history ranging from slave trading to strong Arabic links characterises the island. Wander the narrow streets of Stone Town or just relax and soak up the tropical atmosphere. This 5 day package is an extension of our 4 day package. Extra nights can be added if required.


Arrive on the beautiful island of Zanzibar, “The Spice Island”. From the airport you will be transferred to the Tembo Hotel in Stone Town. This afternoon is free to explore this magnificent, ancient town which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stone Town is a port city on the western coast of Zanzibar and historically significant as it was one of the main coastal and slave-trading ports in East Africa. Explore the alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses. You can spend many idle hours just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets, admiring the intricately carved wooden doors. Tonight return to your hotel, which has local charm and character, authentic furniture and is in a good location. Be sure to take in the view from the rooftop terrace!
