When you arrive at the Zanzibar International Airport, a representative from Tembo House hotel will welcome you and drive you to the hotel where you will check-in for two nights.
Zanzibar port is a 5-minute drive and the Zanzibar International Airport is 8 km from the hotel.
Go on a guided tour of Stone Town which now is a World Heritage site designated by UNESCO in 2000 because it has historic and artistic relevance of how the Swahili culture was influenced in the 19th century by Arab, European, Persian and Indian cultures introduced by foreign merchants and settlers leading to the unique architecture we see today. Stone Town is an old part of Zanzibar City on Ungula Island which was the former capital of the Sultanate and in the 19th century, it was the flourishing business hub for spices and slaves. Discover the wonderful mazes of Zanzibar through narrow passageways that once were historic centers for slaves, ivory and gold that today are a web of craft centers and markets. Walk down endless alleyways, see the ancient coral stone buildings and huge carved wooden doors. Listen to the story that is a presentation of the Zanzibar doors; roles and significances. These doors are now a historical treasure. They are the most striking and give descriptions of the first owners’ occupation and status in society, each carving with its meaning explained by your guide. Don’t forget to take photos. Return to the hotel at noon for lunch and relax at the hotel.
You can take part in other activities though they will be at your own expense.
