[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” title=”Stone Town Tour” image=”336″][vc_column_text]The local life in Stone Town is vivid as people are living their life on the streets– cooking food, playing boa, keeping their hens and socializing all day through. This tour shows you Stone Town far from the tourist traps. The tour allows you to stop on the way to explore the architecture and important landmarks. After the tour it is possible to do some shopping, take a coffee and lunch.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” title=”Chwaka Bay” image=”332″][vc_column_text]Michamvi on the tip of this peninsula has a quiet and untouched beach where you can enjoy the pink / golden sunset over the bay. The more or less vertical palm on the beach will trigger you to take that classical “laying on the palm” picture. Either you can bring a picnic from the villa or eat at Sunset Bay Resort. If you fancy a boat trip the classic dhow sailing boat “Free Spirit” does sunset sails around Chwaka Bay.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” image=”333″ title=”Jozani Rainforest”][vc_column_text]Jozani Rainforest is a hot-spot of biodiversity and stunning scenery.
