The oldest city and the cultural heart of Zanzibar! Stone Town has hardly changed in the last 200 years. It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand houses, whose original owners competed with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings, which is reflected in the beautiful brass-studded and carved wooden doors. You can spend many wonderful hours and days exploring this fascinating town as you wander through the labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways. For a special memory, experience a romantic sunset sailing cruise on a traditional dhow, complete with delicious snacks and your favorite drinks.
