Description

The main island has a rich history and known for its melting pot of cultures, fragrant spice plantations, dense forests, delicious Swahili cuisine and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

A highlight of our Zanzibar experience is a full-day ocean safari tour; dhow boat ride, snorkeling at the Menai Bay Conservation Area, visiting a hidden mangrove forest, sunbathing on a sandbar and a traditional Swahili lunch. Spend the other days exploring Zanzibar and enjoy all that the tropical island has to offer.

Accommodation

Samaki Lodge & Spa

Samaki Lodge & Spa is an intimate boutique lodge in Zanzibar. It’s positioned on the beautiful beach of Uroa on the east coast of the island, just north of Chakwara Bay. The private beach is only a few yards from the hotel’s poolside restaurant and bar. Meals at Samaki Lodge are a delicious combination of modern cuisine and traditional Swahili dishes. 

The lodge is stylishly decorated but still in keeping with the charm of a tropical island lodge. Guests stay in a comfortable ensuite standard room which is airconditioned and has its own private balcony. 

For a surcharge, Samaki Lodge offers a shuttle service for guests to tour of the island. Bookings for outdoor activities and island tours are made at the Guest Relations desk. A special treat is a pamper session at the spa centre at Samaki Lodge.

Tour highlight

A full-day Safari Blue tour is included in the package. 

Safari Blue ocean tour

Spend a full day in the company of the captain and crew of the Safari Blue. The ocean tour leaves from Fumba (30-minutes’ drive from Stone Town). Get fitted for flippers and walk out to a small boat that takes you to the dhows.

A 30-minute boat ride takes you to Menai Bay Conservation Area, an idyllic snorkeling spot in the warm Indian Ocean. Novice snorkelers are helped by the boat crew and provided with a life jacket if not confident swimmers. Spend time in waters teeming with tropical fish before the crew moves you on to a stunning sandbank where you can relax, swim and tan.

Then it’s time for a delicious Swahili seafood barbecue and a one-of-its-kind tropical fruit tasting. Soft drinks are included in the price. Somewhere before or after lunch, you’re taken on the dhows to explore a hidden mangrove lagoon. 

Return to the main island after a thoroughly enjoyable day out at sea with the original and ONLY Safari Blue crew.

Duration: 9-10 hours
