Prepare to be wowed as you’re treated like a star at 2 luxury hotels, set off on 3 epic adventures — and much more! — on this Platinum DreamTrip to sun-kissed Zanzibar. First, delight your senses and discover why Zanzibar is known as the “Spice Island” when you set foot on a local spice farm to smell and taste the island’s popular varieties. Your seasoned guide will also show you an array of plants and describe the medicinal uses of certain spices. Continue to Stone Town, boasting 19th-century architecture that reflects Swahili culture. After exploring the past slave quarters, you’ll head to the Old Fort of Zanzibar. Once a prison, the fort is now an open-air venue used for festivals and performances.
The next day, you’ll take to the water on an exciting boat trip on a traditional dhow. Watch the sun set as you enjoy refreshments and the company of your fellow DreamTrippers. The fun isn’t over yet! You’ll follow up your relaxing sunset cruise with a thrilling daytrip to Mnemba Island, where you'll snorkel and have the chance to swim with dolphins. Before the afternoon is over, you’ll feast on a delicious barbecue lunch on the beach!
During your free time, why not take advantage of all your brand-new boutique hotel, Nungwi Dreams by Mantis, has to offer? Spend time gazing at the ocean from the comfort of the infinity pool or make your way to the private beach for some well-deserved relaxation. Want to venture away from the hotel for a few hours? Gather up the kids and make your way to Nungwi Beach for some fun in the sun. History buffs can learn more about the city’s dark past at Prison Island, a former camp where people with diseases were sent. Foodies can delight in a trip to Forodhani Gardens, a nighttime food market that sells fresh produce, fish and meats.
Your fabulous Platinum experience ends with a romantic dinner by candlelight — raise your sparkling wine and toast to 6 days well-spent!
