Itinerary for 7 days in Zanzibar?  (1 Answer)

Hello! My wife and I are planning a week long stay in Zanzibar island at the end of November. We are young and adventurous but also want time to relax. Could you let us know if the itinerary is reasonable and not too hectic? He idea is to explore all the island has to offer from the north and east while also making time to explore Pemba Island.

Days 1-3: Nungwi beach (snorkeling, quads, spice tour, Safari blue tour, night life)
Days 3-5: Paja beach (kite surfing, drive to forest reserves)
Days 6-7: Pemba island (snorkeling, exploring??)
Day 7: Stone Town and departure

Does this look ok or is too much? Do you have any suggestions on things we missed out or the order of the destinations?

Thanks!
J

Zanzibar - Mnemba atoll  (1 Answer)

I'll be travelling to Zanzibar early September, and want to spend a few days at a beach with easy access to Mnemba Atoll. I also want to be able to swim / snorkel from the beach if possible. I was thinking Matemwe, But can you also get to Mnemba easily from Jambiani, and is that a better beach?
Also, can you do a spice tour from Matemwe or do you end up being taken most of the way back to Stone Town to do it?

Resorts near villages and restaurants  (1 Answer)

.
Where on the island should we stay if we want shopping and dining around the resorts.(apart from Zanzibar town).
It seems that a lot of the resorts are in remote areas where you will have to dine at the hotel.
I find it difficult to choose and not so easy to find out what is around the resorts.
Is there anything we should know about differences between east and west coast ? Is any of them more beautiful than the other??

My son and daughter-in-law are thinking about spending a few days in Zanzibar as a delayed honeymoon. I'm a bit concerned about possible problems with sunbathing in a bikini on the beach. I realize that it is a Muslim country and I read that women should cover their arms and legs when walking around.

advice on Zanzibar trip  (7 Answers)

Hi I am going to Zanzibar on the 13th of September with my boyfriend as part of a longer trip to Africa, and I have left it really late to book a hotel and do my research... we will be staying in Zanzibar Town on the first night, only for a night and then travelling the next day to one of the beach resorts on the East Coast. So far I have looked at the Shangani Hotel which is $80 for 2 people sharing, we are on a budget. as for Beach towns we are looking at Matemwe, Kendwa, Pongwe and Jambiani. Does anyone have any advice on where they think is best and any budget hotel recommendations? We are mostly wanting to chill out on the beaches with a few excursions as we will have just climbed Kilimanjaro! Thank you for any advice! naomi
