Things to Do in Zanzibar

In no particular order, our favourite things to do in Zanzibar include the following…

Visit Swahili House

In Stone Town, you can enjoy amazing views from Swahili House. You will need to climb 12 flights of stairs to get to the roof of this hotel, but the views are truly incredible. Savour a refreshing Kilimanjaro beer when you reach the top, as you look out over the city.

Explore the Forodhani Night Food Market

Also in Stone Town, along the waterfront, you will find an incredible night food market that sells a huge range of tasty local dishes. Make sure that you get there before the sun goes down to watch traders set up stall.

Take a dhow cruise

Dhows are traditionally dug out canoes that are a common sight in Zanzibar. Taking a cruise on one is sure to be something you will remember forever. You can also capture some postcard perfect pictures of fishermen returning to show on their dhows.

Take a dala-dala ride

The ever-present dala-dalas are minibus taxis that will stop anywhere to collect or drop passengers. Cheaper than regular taxis, they are an experience into themselves. Be aware however that they often get overcrowded, which, of course, is all part of the experience.
