Stone Town

2 nightsSTONE TOWN

After your stay in the misty 'Land of a Thousand Hills', you will be driven back to Kigali, where you will fly out to the beach haven, Zanzibar. Here you can rest your wary legs at the lovely Serena Inn in Stone Town, as after your time in the wilds, this is the perfect place to head out and explore the maze of shops and tiny streets, go out to dinner, and watch the sun set from the sea front. Flanked by an exotic mix of sultan's palaces, ancient dhow harbours and bright bazaars, your time at the hotel will be full of charming discoveries, ethnic elegance and Arabic opulence tied in with island sailing trips, spice tours and diving trips to some of the world’s most renowned sites.

5 nightsUNGUJA

Now it's time for a divine, five-day escape to the beach for some serious R&R. Still staying on the island of Zanzibar, you will be taken to Unguja Lodge, a rustic retreat with just twelve pretty thatched cottages perched on a cliff above the Indian Ocean. Planted perfectly for you to sit back, dig your toes into the sand, and watch the dhows float back and forth, pass the five days soaking up the sun, snorkeling along the offshore marine park, swimming with dolphins at nearby Kizimkazi and feasting on coconut, fish and local spices before flying back to Nairobi for your return flight home.
