Me visiting Freddie Mercury's House in Stone Town

A few weeks ago, Mike and I were in Zanzibar for the first time. We stayed for a total of seven nights on the island doing exactly the itinerary of our future groups (with one tour missing) and needless to say, we enjoyed everything about it. The people are friendly, the food are fantastic especially (if you love seafood), the beaches are very nice and there are lots of historical places to visit in Stone Town. In case you are traveling to Zanzibar in the future, here are some of my travel tips:

Emerson on Hurumzi: This was one of the Pit Stops from the latest season of The Amazing Race. From the restaurant, you get fantastic views of Stone Town and its surroundings.

House of Wonders

Freddie Mercury's House

One of the only three Royal Doors left

Old Dispensary

The Palace Museum

Old Fort

Forodhani Park: At night, this turns into a night market which is worth visiting.

Saint Joseph Cathedral

Shiva Shakti Temple

Exploring the streets of Stone Town

Hamamni Persian Baths

Old Slave Market

Anglican Cathedral

Local Market in Stone Town

The white sand beaches 😍😍

Watching the beautiful sunset

Visiting a village to learn more of their day to day lives (this one is from Muungoni Village)

Mangrove tour

Sailing and snorkeling tour

The Baobab trees: This is Zanzibar Baobab trees so if you want to see the real tall ones, then you would have to go to Madagascar πŸ˜‰

Visiting Spice Farm: Known as Mr. Spice, Abdulla is definitely the man to ask with all your spicy questions πŸ‘

Enjoying the local food πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
