All about our travels to

Zanzibar

About our travels in Zanzibar, so far...

We are Jana+Matt, two professional tour guides and avid travellers with a passion for culture, history, architecture and the outdoors. Half of the year we share our passion face-to-face with travellers from all over the world as tour guides on our own tours in our adopted hometown Barcelona, Spain. The other half of the year, under our moniker GuideVenturous, we spend on a Quest to become the 1st to visit all 1121 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Our visit to Zanzibar

We were on Zanzibar, Tanzania to visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. First Stone Town and then the tentative Jozani Forest/Chwaka Bay Conservation Area. Both of them are very reachable as day trips from here.

How to get to Zanzibar, and back

There are few other ways to get to the island other than by flying. We are based in Barcelona so that is where we flew from. We actually found a very cheap return ticket from Brussels with TUI Airlines. We then just got a cheap connecting return ticket connecting with our home town from Brussels Airlines. Flying back from the island we landed in Mombasa, Kenya after only 50 minutes to let of people travelling there before the rest of us continuing to Brussels 2 hours later.

How to get around

During our stay on this paradise island we explored all corners of it. We stayed at all of the places below in search of sun and the best beaches possible. All of them are also great bases for visiting the two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Stone Town and the tentative Jozani Forest/Chwaka Bay Conservation Area.
