Day 2 - Spice and Stone

Pick up from hotel after breakfast and head for a combined Stone Town and Spice tour as per below descriptions; 

Guaranteed to awaken your senses. Visit spice plantations where you will have the opportunity to pick, smell & savour fruit & spices that you have probably never seen on the supermarket shelf.
Commencing at the ruins of the Maruhubi Palace, via the site of David Livingston’s house (one of Africa’s greatest explorers) the journey continues north toward the Kidichi Persian Baths.

From here we continue to the rural areas where local farmers live & produce some of the world’s most exotic fruit and spices. Cloves, star fruit, ‘bulls’ heart’, tangerine trees, lemon grass, mangosteen and lip-stick trees, to name but a few, are what you can expect to see – according to the seasons. Perhaps you will fancy buying a basket of freshly picked spices to take home with you.

After the Spice tour you will be driven to Stone town for a lunch break (to be paid by yourselves) then proceed on a guided Stone town tour as per below descriptions;

​Begin with a visit to Zanzibar’s colourful market, alive with the buzz of locals bartering fresh vegetables and baskets of tropical fruit, cocoa farm, amongst the heady smell of exotic fruit. Continue to the site of a cathedral built in 1874. The cathedral signifies a potent time in Zanzibar’s history and stands on the sight of a past slave market with the high altar standing on the exact site of the whipping post.

Slavery was abolished in 1873 by decree of the Sultan of Zanzibar. From here visit the residence of the late Sultan of Zanzibar, ‘Tip Tip House’, the Old Fort, ‘Peoples Palace’ and the House of Wonders’, Forodhani garden full of intrigue from days of long ago.

The sanctuary is a long-established conservation program where injured marine turtles are treated and looked after at a natural lagoon. The turtles are released several times per year and the project also breeds turtle eggs at a safe location until the baby turtles hatch. Young turtles are kept at various pools and at the lagoon. They are released into the ocean once they reach a size that guarantees a higher chance of survival in the wild.

Weather:

The best times to visit Zanzibar are from June to October during the cool, dry months of spring, or January to February when it’s hot and dry. There are two rainy seasons in Zanzibar. The main season, called the “long rains” is during mid-April and May. The second rainy season, “the short rains” that last only a for a few minutes, usually in the mornings, is from November to December.

Daytime temperatures remain fairly constant, with maximum temperatures at around 31/33 degrees Celsius or, very exceptionally, 36 degrees Celsius, and during the rainy season in April and May, up to 29 degrees Celsius.

During the night the temperature doesn’t usually go below 21 degrees Celsius, and is usually around 23-24ºC. The sea is warm enough for swimming all year around, from 25 ºC August to 29 ºC from December to April.​


Currency:

The local currency in Zanzibar is the Tanzanian Shilling (TSh). US dollar notes are also widely accepted as payment throughout the island.
Traveller’s Cheques can be exchanged at banks, bureau de change and some hotels, although exchange rates are poor and cash is preferable.
Credit cards such as Visa and Mastercard are accepted at larger establishments.

There are ATM cash machines in Zanzibar Town and at the airport. ​

​A local tax of USD 1 per person per night (including children) is payable, usually upon departure and by cash to the hotel/resort.

Most crucially, tipping in Zanzibar is voluntary and entirely at your own discretion. It should depend on the quality of service that you receive, however it is also good to bear in mind the extent of the work someone is doing for you, and how tipping impacts on the local community.

Tipping can form a significant part of the income for those in the service industry, such as waiters, drivers or room attendants. While the staff would undoubtedly appreciate a generous tip, tipping excessively can have a negative impact on the local community and upset the social balance.

When to tip – After each activity, at the end of each day or at the end of your stay.
For hotel staff it is always best to just tip once, at the end of your stay. For your driver, or any specialist guides, we would advise to tip at the end of each activity as there is no guarantee that you will encounter them later in your trip.

Here is a rough guideline to consider:
US$8–10 per guest per day for a specialist guide
US$8–10 per guest per day for a personal butler
US$5–10 per guest per day for a private chef
US$3–5 per guest per day for the general staff
US$3–5 per road transfer


Vaccination:

Travellers should be up to date with routine vaccination courses and boosters as recommended. These vaccinations include for example measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and diphtheria-tetanus-polio vaccine.

Country specific diphtheria recommendations are not provided here. Diphtheria tetanus and polio are combined in a single vaccine in some countries. Therefore, when a tetanus booster is recommended for travellers, diphtheria vaccine is also given. Should there be an outbreak of diphtheria in a country, diphtheria vaccination guidance will be provided.

Those who may be at increased risk of an infectious disease due to their work, lifestyle choice, or certain underlying health problems should be up to date with additional recommended vaccines.

The vaccines which are recommended for most travellers visiting this country:
Hepatitis A
Tetanus
Typhoid

The vaccines which are recommended for some travellers visiting this country:
Cholera
Rabies
Hepatitis B
Tuberculosis (TB)
Meningococcal Disease
Yellow Fever
Certificate requirements

Please read the information below carefully, as certificate requirements may be relevant to certain travellers only. For travellers’ further details, if required, should be sought from their healthcare professional. ​

  • There is a low potential for exposure to yellow fever throughout Tanzania.
  • Under International Health Regulations, a certificate of yellow fever vaccination is required from travellers over 1 year of age arriving from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission, and for travellers having transited for more than 12 hours through an airport of a country with risk of yellow fever transmission.
  • According to World Health Organization (WHO), from 11 July 2016 (for all countries), the yellow fever certificate will be valid for the duration of the life of the person vaccinated. As a consequence, a valid certificate, presented by arriving travellers, cannot be rejected on the grounds that more than ten years have passed since the date vaccination became effective as stated on the certificate; and that boosters or revaccination cannot be required.

 

Malaria
Travellers should follow an ABCD guide to preventing malaria:
Awareness of the risk – Risk depends on the specific location, season of travel, length of stay, activities and type of accommodation.
Bite prevention – Travellers should take mosquito bite avoidance measures.
Chemoprophylaxis – Travellers should take antimalarials (malaria prevention tablets) if appropriate for the area (see below). No antimalarials are 100% effective but taking them in combination with mosquito bite avoidance measures will give substantial protection against malaria.
Diagnosis – Travellers who develop a fever of 38°C [100°F] or higher more than one week after being in a malaria risk area, or who develop any symptoms suggestive of malaria within a year of return should seek immediate medical care. Emergency standby treatment may be considered for those going to remote areas with limited access to medical attention.

  • There is a high risk of malaria in all areas of Tanzania below 1,800m (including Zanzibar): atovaquone/proguanil OR doxycycline OR mefloquine recommended.
  • There is no risk of malaria above 1,800m: bite avoidance recommended

Altitude illness in Tanzania
There is a point of elevation in this country higher than 2,500 metres. An example place of interest: Mt Kilimanjaro 5,895m.

Prevention
Travellers should spend a few days at an altitude below 3,000m. Where possible travellers should avoid travel from altitudes less than 1,200m to altitudes greater than 3,500m in a single day. Ascent above 3,000m should be gradual. Travellers should avoid increasing sleeping elevation by more than 500m per day and ensure a rest day (at the same altitude) every three or four days. Acetazolamide can be used to assist with acclimatization, but should not replace gradual ascent. Travellers who develop symptoms of AMS (headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea and sleep disturbance) should avoid further ascent. In the absence of improvement or with progression of symptoms the first response should be to descend.
