Take a boat trip to this beautiful small island just offshore from Stone Town. Formerly owned by the Arabs and British, it was once used as an old quarantine centre for lepers and TB victims. Now it is more commonly known as the home of Zanzibar's Giant Aldabran Tortoise colony, some of which are over a hundred years old! This endagered species came to Zanzibar as a gift from the government of the Seychelles.

Once on the island, you have the opportunity to feed and pet the tortoises and if you have time, you can do a spot of snorkeling. (equipment hire not included). You may also like to take a stroll through the forested interior where you will see a wide variety of birds, colorful peacocks, bats, and beautiful butterflies. Keep your eyes peeled too for the shy and elusive Duikers - an unusual tiny antelope species.

This tour is a great way to see some history and wildlife, and also to see Stone Town from the water as many old maritime legends would have done.

Personal description
My aim is to fill the existing gap for a competent multilingual Destination Management Company DMC in Zanzibar. I am an 100 percent Zanzibari with more than twelve years of experience in the tourism sector.

Together with my dedicated staff, we are proven to local Tourism stake holders and the world at large, to be the most competent, efficient, and reliable Multilingual Tours and Safaris provider in Zanzibar and Tanzania.

Our long experience has enabled us to move at a very significant pace in understanding of tourism of all levels. We pride ourselves with designing our own tours and excursions, rather than follow traditional tourist trails. As a result, our tours and excursions permit our clients to see historic and cultural sites that have never been explored by other Zanzibar Companies.

We have managed to offer packages and itineraries of ultimate comfort and relaxation. We provide our clients with both personalized, as well as the group services of all budgets. Big and small resorts are both in our concern. A fleet of luxurious vehicles, big and small , all of which are air conditioned, are waiting for you.

A very good relation we have with the Zanzibar hotels has also enabled us to sell, but more importantly to be the first Zanzibari Company offering very competitive and attractive rates to its partners. Our main goal is internalization of our profound knowledge and experience of Zanzibar and Tanzania to all our beloved clients, and to serve customers of all budgets and nationalities, without language barriers.
