The resort has their own dhow(sailing boat), so we went to prison island by sailing directly from our restort jetty. it was a spectacular experience. We chilled at the upper deck for some sunbathe on the way sailing there and our guide showed us around when we reach the prison island.
You must also take their boat to Prison Island - an amazing way to travel (with a beer!), jump into the water and Prison Island itself has giant tortoises, one of which is 191 years old.

Combination of Zanzibar holidays and Safari on the mainland is a perfect choice for those who are looking for true widlife experience.
Our reliable partner Luxury Short Safari will organize for you extraordinary safari experience in Selous Game Reserve. Together we will prepare a package including flights from Zanzibar.
SELOUS GAME RESERVE by LuxuryShortSafari:
From our experience, no safari comes as close nor gets as real as the one through Selous Game Reserve. At 54,600 sq km, it is one of the largest faunal reserves in the world, with large populations of the ‘Big Five’ as well as a wide variety of other animals & birds. Just 8% of the total area is designated as a photographic reserve while the rest is managed as hunting concessions.
No designated paths mean there is plenty of offroad detours during game drives, which take you as close to the action as possible. So whether it is following the vultures to a fresh kill or catching up with African wild dogs as they chase down an impala, you decide the direction to take. Or, if you are up for it, a walk in the bush or a boat ride with hippos & crocodiles are sure to provide that ultimate adrenaline rush.
And finally when it is time for a break, enjoy delicious meals from our five star kitchens under the beautiful Selous sky. If you’re lucky you may even have a curious visitor scamper by, or a glance from a passing elephant. Relax! They are your comrades on this journey.

Zanzibar is known as an Island of Spices. We are inviting you to the Spice Farms where you will find different spices like cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper and many more. Guides will tell you interesting facts about your favourite flavours and scents and you will experience spices, tropical fruits and herbs with all your senses.
When you visit Stone Town you will have a feeling that the time stopped 200 years ago. There is a clear and fascinating imprint of the rich history and architecture. You can spend your time meandering through a labyrinth of small narrow alleys and streets, old and renovated houses made from coralline rock, mosques and ground Arab houses. The unique signature of this town is in more than 500 brass-studded, carved, wooden doors made by local craftsman. Stone Town was declared a World Heritage Site City by UNESCO in 2000.
Zanzibar's first and only National Park is centred on Jozani Forest, the largest area of mature forest found within Zanzibar. Perhaps one of the most famous and endearing residents of the Jozani-Chwaka Bay National Park is the Zanzibar Red Colobus monkey. Found only on the main island of Zanzibar, the Zanzibar Red Colobus is recognised as a separate species and is said to be endemic to Zanzibar. A visit to Zanzibar is not compete without seeing one of the rarest monkeys in Africa, with less than 2000 remaining in the world.
