Sail on a Traditional Dhow
This is one way of stepping into the shoes of the famous explorers who used these kinds of dhows as earlier flights that explored our world.
At 16h30 embark in a traditional sailing dhow of the type used for centuries back for carrying cargo and passengers (slaves) between Zanzibar and the Arabian Gulf. The boat ride will give you an insight into the real Zanzibar atmosphere of ancient times. Surely, you will have no choice but to relax while enjoying the Zanzibar breezes and crystal clear turquoise waters. You should try your lucky hand fishing with a local fisherman’s lines. A sunset cruise takes us till sunset while enjoying our refreshments and the Tales of Zanzibar while witnessing a shift of a night from a day. The dhow will be cruising around Stone Town nearby some Islands.
