Day 1 Stone Town

Pick up at aiport and transfer to Kholle House.
Briefing and test of bicycle.

18.00 Roof top dinner at Emerson on Hurumzi . The best roof top in town where you will enjoy 270 degrees sea view accompanied by the call for prayers and the tingling sound from the Shiva temple below.

Overnight at Kholle House – a personal boutique hotel with a feeling of home and lots of beautiful balconies and terraces to enjoy.

Day 2 Stone Town-Spice Farms

Today we visit the lush Spice Farm area 20 km north of Stone Town. We will go to a Spice Farm for a tour where you will see, smell and try the tropical fruits and spices in season: vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg,  turmeric, lemon grass, cloves, ylang ylang, cumin, garlic, ginger, coriander, pepper, tamarind, chili, oregano and many others.

After lunch at the farm we continue to  Chueni /Bububu for overnight (6 km) at Mangrove Lodge – an Eco-lodge surrounded by a tropical garden with spices, coconut palms and mango trees. You can enjoy the sunset while lying on the warm sand sipping a drink.

Day 3 nungwi

Early morning ride to Zanzibars´Northern point, Nungwi, via Mkokotoni, a small genuine fishing village where locals take the boat to Tumbatu and where you will find an authentic fruit and fish market (53km). Nungwi is the most vivid place on the island but still very cute and Zanzibari. You have the village to explore and the sea here is amazing and with no  tide to talk about you  can swim from the shore 24/7.

Afternoon, dinner and overnight in Nungwi, Flame Tree Cottages. Flame Tree Cottages is a peaceful place with small villas. We love that they serve breakfast on your private veranda and that the beach- and nightlife is merely a 200 m away.

Day 4 Matemwe

Early morning departure to Matemwe (26 km) for snorkeling at Mnemba atoll. Mnemba Atoll is a Marine Conservation area with a vast oval reef system. The reefs surrounding the island are colorful and you can expect to see lion fish, moray eels and stingrays swimming around in the shallow water. If we are lucky you can jump in the water surrounded by dolphins.

The tour ends after the lunch

 
Cycling holidays 4 days Spice Tour

Cycling holidays 4 days Stone Town Matemwe

 Veerle,  November 2016 “We did a 3 day biking trip starting in stone town, then Bububu, Nungwi and latest Matemwe. It was a great experience. Suleiman is a very good and friendly guide. The 1st day we did also a spice tour at one of the spice farms near Stone town. The last day we went for snorkeling at the Mnemba Atoll close to Matemwe. If you like nice beaches that are not to busy I would recommend to skip Nungwi as the beach at Kiwengwa and Pongwe are also beautifull and less people.
