Stone Town Tour

The Stone Town tour is a unique opportunity to learn about the soul of Zanzibar. We will explore the famous doors and learn about the history of this fascinating town, It will be our time to shop for incredible items from artwork to spices to gorgeous fabrics. And we will get a fabric (of our choosing) and then our private tailor will create one outfit that you create! How fantastic is that?

Sea Safari

We will take a gorgeous, semi-private wooden boat where we cross a seascape dotted with small atolls, uninhabited islands and white sandbanks. We will then dock at a small island where under a gorgeous canopy we will enjoy a lunch of the freshest grilled fish, shellfish and fruit. Along the way, we will stop at famous Prison Island to learn a bit about its history and visit (and feed!) the tortoises (some almost 200 years old). It is an unforgettable experience.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

We recommend flying to Dar es Salaam (DAR) and then book a short hop flight to Zanzibar. Flights are approximately 20 minutes/numerous flights daily.

Flights cost around GBP 70, USD 100, EUR 90. Booking through Alternative Airlines seems to be the most cost-effective and simple option.

Transportation from and to Zanzibar airport is included day of/ depart day only. Pick-up times are 2.00 PM on start day and departure time on last day is 9-10am. Please allow 2 hours prior to flight time at the airport and a 60-min drive from our location. If you need pick-ups/ drop-offs OUTSIDE of scheduled times, additional fees will apply. We will help arrange and inform you of the costs.

Arrival by ferry

There are many boat options from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar and back. Each provider charges differently with tickets priced between USD 20 and USD 50 one way. Ferry time is approximately 2 hours each way. It is advisable to opt for one of the faster more modern boats. Sometimes ferry is more preferred on the return as you do not need to wait for 2 hours like you do for boarding flights. If you require additional arrangements, please let contact Sole Yoga Holidays.
