    My family really enjoyed our tailor made trip. It wouldn't have been the same without or excellent guide Salum. He was friendly, funny and full of information. My two young daughters are still asking about him a week later! I would absolutely recommend Zenith Tour for young families as the Zanzibar is the perfect pace, a great mix of downtime and sightseeing.

    Excellent trip. I had a great time. There was nothing I could complain about. Guide was great and was always willing to talk with me, even answer what was probably an endless list of questions. Over 5 days we definitely had a feel for what the country looks like.

Notes

Pick up time varies according to guest request. Consult your guide when offering local children gifts.

Spices from Zanzibar are famous around the world, and a holiday to Zanzibar would be incomplete without a visit to the spice plantations. The sultan of Oman first introduced these types of plantations to the island in 1873. You will be overwhelmed by the abundance of botanical species growing within these gardens – exotic spices, fruits and vegetables. Many of the spices have medicinal properties and are still used by the local population to cure certain maladies. Savour a variety of spices including cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla, and black pepper.

Taste an array of fruits ranging from the rose apple to the guava. Rare plants such as henna, the ‘perfume tree’ and ‘lipstick tree’ are used for their valuable properties in preparing cosmetics. Besides the visit to two distinct spice farms, the Kidichi Persian Baths, richly decorated in stuccowork, are also included in the trip.
