What to do in Unguja

Stone town

The town of Stone Town is marked by the diversity of its cultural origins, blending African, Indian, European and other cultures. Stone Town is home to the former slave market where the Anglican Church of East Africa was built.

Let yourself be carried away by the old town and wander through the markets, meet people and discover the island’s way of life and crafts.

Unguja West Sand Islands

To the west of Zanzibar lies a whole archipelago of tiny islands for tourists. Napukenda Beach, Murogo Island, Bawe Island, Pange Island, Changuu Island and Chapwani Island are ideal for comfort. The giant tortoises of Changu Island are amazing. Changu Island is nicknamed Prison Island, due to the presence of disobedient slaves in the past.

Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park

Zanzibar is full of surprises with its rare vegetation and animals.

If on your trip you want to alternate your activities, such as an incredible hiking session in the rainforest or enjoying the beach, we recommend a visit to Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park.

The red colobus mon keys of Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park have become an emblematic species of the island and of the park, now recognised as a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. Explore Jozani Park, between black sand mangroves and dazzling forest density

Your Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park helps to preserve the monkeys.

Here are the rules to follow in the park:

  • It is forbidden to give them food, as their forest is dense enough for them to have enough to eat.
  • Avoid taking photos with your mobile phone or camera flash
  • Keep a safe distance between you and them.

Entrance fee to Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park:

  • 12 per adult
  • 6 for children under the age of 15

Getting to Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park is easy, as it’s just 35km from Stone Town, the historic heart of Zanzibar.

When to visit Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park:

The park can be visited all year round, but we recommend you visit between June and February to avoid the rainy periods.

Kuza Cave in Unguja

The steep aquatic caves of Kuza Cave make for an unusual swim in surprisingly clear water. Relatively isolated, the caves offer a unique swimming environment, with warm waters and tiny crabs. The Kuza caves offer a stunning palette of colours.

Local shows are held here on a regular basis.
