I've planned and booked an 11 day holiday at Zanzibar in sept - 7 nights in Stone town, and 4 nights at the most amazing east coast beach...
But now, after been reading around, i'm having doubt, if the 7 nights in Stone Town is too long??
And would i be better of to take a couple of days elsewhere???
I have plans on taking several different tours though : the 1/2 day walking around ST-tour, the Spice tour, Jozani forest, Prison Island and a Dhow sunset cruise (or two?) is my top priority and my defintely 'must-see's'....
Among other things i've planned is good time to just stroll aound and shoot a LOT of photo's, and ofcourse do some shopping.
If you have been to Stone Town i would so appreciate to hear your advice(s) and experiences - this is probably my once-in-a-life-vacation, and would be sorry to find out afterwards that i might have missed out on something essential.
I'm a mid-40's female traveling alone, i love beautiful scenery, amazing, different and historical places/sites.
I'm not into squizing a bunch of things/tours in on the same day, as i like/need to have the time to enjoy and absorbe all impressions.
Nightlife/bars is not something i attend.
I do not have a drivers license.
Thank you very much for taking your time to (hopefully) clearify things for me :)
