For some of us, our idea of a holiday is doing nothing. Late mornings, leisurely swims, strolls through the gardens, some poolside reading, followed by a quiet dinner are all we need. Whatever pace suits you, you’ll find it at Zanzi Resort. The grounds are ideal for early morning jogs. The ocean and pools offer a choice of open-sea swimming or meditative laps. Those who enjoy reading and writing will find plenty of nooks to sit and contemplate. If you want to be pampered, enjoy an open-air massage or detox with our hot stone spa, a Japanese ganban'yoku. Lie on heated body-sized stones and feel the cleansing effects as the toxins leave your body, your circulation improves, and your skin glows. 

If you fancy something a little more adventurous, we can arrange boat rides, sunset cruises, or snorkeling day trips. We’re very proud of our Masai heritage and will happily treat you to a Masai dance and share our music and culture with you.

Zanzi Boat Trip

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.

Stone town

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.

Spice farm

Zanzibar is known as an Island of Spices. We invite 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.

Went with a small group of colleagues; the tour guide was great, easygoing and knowledgeable, and so much fun to see how various spices are grown, harvested and processed.

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.
