Zanzibar Extension: Pre-Departure Information (4 Day/ 3 Night): 

Time to leave the mainland and enjoy some island time. Over the course of 4 days, we’ll compliment our time in Kilimanjaro’s vast plains with an Indian Ocean island adventure. Explore the winding streets of Stone Town venturing through the former Slave Market, the Sultan’s Palace and the Old Arab Fort on a guided tour. Along the way, experience modern-day island life in the coastal spice and fish markets. Venture offshore to idyllic Prison Island and scout for the island’s famous giant tortoises at a sanctuary, relax on powder white beaches and swim in crystal blue waters. 

A reminder that Zanzibar is a slower pace of life, people are on "island time", we ask that travelers be flexible as things run at a different pace. 

Here is some important information that you need to know about traveling on the Zanzibar extension.
