Reviewed By sajohns22 - Fayetteville, North Carolina

The information and close encounters with exotic animals was such a treat. The care and respect given to each of the animals was quite refreshing. The owners really love what they do and it shows. They also treated all visitors with respect and were careful of their individuality. Cheetah's Rock is a must see for any visitor to Zanzibar.

Nakupenda Beach

Reviewed By Natejordon - Singapore, Singapore

Organized a boat to nakupenda just outside the Tenno House Hotel on the beach in Stone Town. Two hour trip negotiated for 50,000 tsh
I wasn’t sure what time to visit given low tide was around midday today and high tide around 630am. I got there at 9am and was the first boat to arrive. Had the sandbank to myself for the first 30min which led to some magical shots. From what I’ve seen - it looks far busier around midday when the tours all come in
The sandbank itself is pretty amazing - and suggest for those staying in stone town to go off peak with arrangements with a boat easy to negotiate

Uroa Bay

Reviewed By MirindaK - Johannesburg, South Africa

Uroa Bay oozes white sandy Beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, palm trees and a friendly locals just trying to sell you some of their wares to make some money of the tourist - say "no thanks' and they are happy to let you be. The Beaches allow you to take long strolls and enjoy the peace and tranquillity! It was a perfect 7 days spent in this part of the Island. It is about 35km from Stone Town and very accessible by car. Be warned if you are looking for shopping this is not the place as there are no shops but just a few locals selling their wares on the beach front - they have small huts from which they sell beads, t shirts etc. A few of them found us on the beach and opened their shops for us - it was a good feeling just supporting them as I think the few dollars they make of tourists can go a long way to helping them and their families. Just my take on things. I really enjoyed my stay in this area.

Tangawizi Spice Farm

Tangawizi spicefarm is a community farm in the country side (Dole Village) out side stone town which grows a wide range of spices. It's a demonstration farm and we offer the following services: 1. Spice Tour 2. Spice Meals 3. Henna Painting 4. Selling Spices both Offline and Online

Reviewed By catztravelling - St. Gallen, Switzerland

We made a day trip to Stone Town plus spice farm.
At Tangawizi we met our guide who was very friendly. His English was surprisingly good.
The tour through the plantation and Gardens was nice and interesting. The guide made it somehow interactive by asking us many questions which was fun. There were the usual little add-ons like local children making little baskets and crowns out of leaves and flowers and a local climbing on a coconut tree to collect coconuts. At the end we were offered a tasting of natural fruits but refused as to the rule boil it peel it or leave it.
The staff tried to sell nicely presented packets of spices and perfumes but it's definitely cheaper to buy from the market in Stone Town.

Kiwengwa Beach

Reviewed By jaredites1 - Cairo, Egypt

We really loved this beach, our second favorite on the east coast of Zanzibar. Isolated, yet busy enough to have other options to interact with people than just those in beach resorts. Numerous small beach art stores, kiosks, and even a pet monkey. We drove from Stone Town, 50min, and were able to park 5 meters from the beach, after driving down a small access road through a village. At high tide, there were enough sandy areas where kids can swim without the normal Zanzibar worry of urchins or sharp rocks. Great walking beach, tanning beach, and just hanging out.

Christ Church Cathedral

Reviewed By SalimM - London, United Kingdom

This is part of the ‘slave chambers exhibit’. Having paid for your entrance to the slave chambers section, you get an opportunity to go inside this Cathedral which has an interesting history relating to the slave trade. As with most old structures like these, the architecture is worth a look and the stained glass is also beautiful. A guide is useful.

Quad Zanzibar Tour

Drive your own off-road quad on the island of Zanzibar and discover its rich wild nature and beautiful landscapes. Experience the true Zanzibar and its culture, while you visit a town and meet the locals.

Reviewed By billymulraney - Chicago, Illinois

My wife and I weren't sure about taking this activity, we thought it was too adventurous for us, but Luis, the owner, convinced us to take it. He assured us that we would be traveling with a very professional team that would help us anytime we needed.
The truth is that we felt very comfortable with all the team and also with the equipment.
The tour is really magic, since you visit a local village and you get the oportunity to discover the real Zanzibar. It was one of our best days in Zanzibar.
We only have good words for this company and we wish them the best of luck in this adventure!
