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.

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 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.

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.
