Arrival at Zanzibar Airport and transfer to Zanzibar Stone Town. The Zanzibar Stone Town is the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar where very little has changed in the last 200 years.

Today we take you to the most scenic parts of the old town. You will visit the former site of the slave market, the cathedral (Cathedral Church of Christ) built in its site in 1874, the Sultan’s palace (Palace Museum), House of Wonders, and Arab Fort, and natural museum where you will have enough time to explore these historical monuments.

Stop in one of the best restaurants for lunch In the afternoon, proceed to the wharf to catch a local boat (with an outboard engine) to visit Changuu (prison) Island. Changuu is a charming little Island which is located about 5 km off to Zanzibar Stone Town and is about half an hour boat ride from Stone Town.
This used to be a private place of detention for recalcitrant slaves. The island has the added attraction of several giant Aldabra tortoises and beautiful peacocks that are living and breeding on the Island.
