My plan for this trip was to start 1 day in Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar and after that going to a resort for relaxing on the beach and other excursions on Zanzibar. I recommend making a visit in Stone Town for one day, either at the beginning of your trip or at the end of your trip. One day is enough and personally I think it´s a must when you’re here. Best of all is that it is just 10 minutes by taxi from the airport!

THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO SEE AND DO FOR ONE DAY IN STONE TOWN, ZANZIBAR

This is what you must see when you are in Stone Town:

  • The Old Fort (Ngome Kongwe)
  • The Slave market
  • Mercury House
  • Darajani Bazaar (The colorful market)
  • Stroll around the streets in Stone Town
  • House of Wonders (Beit- el- Ajaib)
  • Forodhanipark

Stone Town

Thanks to Destination Zanzibar I got a private guide for a whole day which took me around Stone Town. At 09.00 my guide Taib came to my hotel and met me at the reception. He’s incredibly talented and skilled guide. (He was also a private guide to Prince Charles when he was staying in Zanzibar). I learned a lot from him which was very interesting to know about Stone Town. We started already at 9:00 in the morning and walked around for nearly 3 hours. There were many new experiences for me and exciting to see all the sights here 🙂

Darajani Bazaar (The colorful market)

Did you know that there are 16 different varieties of bananas? I had no idea about that. One of them is red bananas!

The Slave market

Here you see Taib, my guide for the day from Destination Zanzibar. I can highly recommend him if you want a private guided tour inside the Stone Town!

  1. Vi missade nog en del av dina “måste se” tips när vi var där för ett gäng år sen, men det var ändå spännande att komma dit! 🙂

    • Ja det var mycket spännande att vara där. Det bästa är att man kan åka tillbaka och upptäcka det man inte gjorde sist ?
