The following four nights you will spend on Zanzibar’s endless white, palm fringed beaches in a beach resort of your choice.

On arrival you will be received by your guide & transfer to the hotel on the island.

On this day, you go to an excursion in Kizimkazi. Situated on the southern point of the island, Kizimkazi fishing village is home to several schools of bottle-nosed dolphins and Humpback dolphins, which can often be sighted following a short boat trip from the village. If you are lucky, you may be able to swim quite close to the dolphins, which can be a very rewarding experience. We are doing this trip in the afternoon to avoid the crowds of tourists in the morning, who turn up in big numbers disturbing the dolphins.  So, you get to spend your morning at leisure.
