TOURS/EVENTS

BOAT TOURS

If you like being on the water, exploring new islands, snorkelling, relaxing at the beach or sailing into the breathtaking sunset, then you might consider to book one of our exclusive boat tours!

 

We own two new, comfortable and nicely decorated boats. One them is a beautiful motorboat, made of Tanzanian wood and equipped with precious carpets. The other one is a Dhow boat, which is the typical sailing boat in East Africa. Both boats are equipped with Wi-Fi and a speaker. You can chose between different playlists or tell us to turn the music off. We also provide life vests in different sizes and a new snorkelling equipment, which we clean every day. Snorkelling is possible in the surrounding reefs of Nakupenda Island and Prison Island and you can see a variety of exotic tropical fishes and other sea animals. One highlight is the sunset cruise tour with Captain Juma, which will reward you with tasty cocktails and a spectacular view. 

CULTURAL TOURS

Are you looking to get to know the unique and diverse culture of Zanzibar? If you do so, join the enthusiastic and competent team of Serenity Experience on a journey through history and time, discover new and fascinating facets of Zanzibar and get a taste of the incredibly rich Swahili cuisine.

 

During our cultural tours you will learn how to cook traditional Swahili dishes, immerse into the history and wonderful architecture of world-famous Stone Town, see and taste fresh fruits and spices on authentic local spice farms, and meet the rare red Colobus monkey and other animals at Jozani Forest, Zanzibars only national park. Our guides will take care of you to provide you with an unforgettable experience. The transport by taxi from Stone Town is included in most tours. If you have an option to organise your transport otherwise, let us know by e-mail and we may offer you a discount rate.

COMBINED TOURS

If you want to combine two of our tours to have a full day Zanzibar experience, you can chose one of these options at a discount rate. For example, you can start with a boat trip in the morning and go on to discover the historic old town of Stone Town in the afternoon or vice versa. Or you combine a cooking class with the spice farm tour, since they both take place at the same location. These are the combinations/tour packages currently available:

  1. Full Day I: Nakupenda Island Tour + Stone Town Tour

  2. Full Day II: Stone Town Tour + Prison Island Tour

  3. Food Tour: Cooking Class + Spice Farm Tour

  4. Island Tour: Nakupenda Island Tour + Prison Island Tour

EVENTS & SOCIAL

Serenity Experience is planning to organise several events throughout the year (our goal is to get ready by 2020). The general idea of these events is to show various facets of Zanzibarian culture, such as local music, surrounded by nice locations. If you wish, you can also ask us to organise (small) parties for you. We will keep you up to date about our seasonal events on our website and our social media channels once the concepts are finalised.

Besides, we are actively supporting organisations that deal with social issues and try to improve the education in Zanzibar. We can get you in touch with their project leaders, if you want to get to know their work in person. They also collect donations or gifts for children (this is totally voluntary though) and will tell you what their daily life is like.

Be assured that each of our tours and events are created as sustainable and environmental-friendly as possible!
