A 8 Day, 7 Night experience that will have you wanting to take up residence on the beautiful island of Zanzibar!
Join Black Travel Fest in Zanzibar this October!
Join us from October 18th through 25th for a week of fun and exploration. For eight days and seven nights, we will explore the island’s scenic Stone Town, discover its numerous islands with an island hopping and snorkeling tour, learn all about its rich and diverse history, take a sobering walk through the island’s role in the East African slave trade, and celebrate living our best lives at the island’s best full moon party. Not to mention, we’ll be checking out Nungwi, one of Zanzibar’s most stunning and picturesque beaches. It’s an adventure that you won’t want to end!
This 8 day, 7 night itinerary will leave you in awe!
Zanzibar has an interesting combination of culture, history, food, and architecture!
Check into your Stone Town accommodations and catch a breathtaking sunset while you sip one of Zanizbar’s fancy libations.
Y’all already know we have a bomb Black Travel Fest style welcome party planned. We hope you slept on the plane because you’re headed out for an event you’ll never forget.
Sleep in a bit, but be prepared for a day filled with history and scenic sites. You’ll start the day with a visit to one of Zanzibar’s famous spice farms and learn how this tiny island became one of the most diverse spice producers in the world.
If you’re game, we’ll be hitting the streets for a night out on the town.
Set out for a day of island hopping around Zanzibar’s crystal blue waters. You’ll ride in a traditional Dhow boat, visit a sandbar that gradually disappears as the day goes on, take a dip in a natural swimming pool (man grove), and finally make your way to a private island where a seafood feast awaits.
You’ll likely be a bit pooped after an action packed instagrammable day, so you’ll have time to grab a tasty dinner and turn in early…or sneak out for a little turn up for those who are still down for the cause.
Go on an eye opening tour of Stone Town where you’ll see the famous doors of Stone Town and have the opportunity to learn about Zanizbar’s role in the East African slave trade.
Later in the evening we’ll join as a group for a final dinner and enjoy some live entertainment.
Free day!! Today we’re headed to Zanzibar’s most pristine beach. If the fine powdery sand doesn’t win you over, the numerous shades of crystalline blue will do the trick.
We’ll be having a special culinary experience and a BTF beach kickback on this evening.
Who’s ready to slay a Black Travel Fest style beach photoshoot? You’ll love what we’ve cooked up this time. Just know that the slayage will be on level 100.
You’ll have this evening to enjoy the live entertainment at our beach resort or you can venture into town to experience the numerous amazing restaurants known for great seafood and other cuisine.
Take the day to explore the many beach activities offered. You can spend the day shopping, play volleyball, go snorkeling, visit the nearby turtle sanctuary, and more.
It’s Black Travel Fest tradition to do it big for Halloween with themed event, and this year’s celebration happens to coincide with one of the largest full moon parties in the world that just happens to take place in Zanzibar each month. We’ll be in full attendance.
It’s so hard to say goodbye, but it’s time to head back to Athens to catch our flights back.
Note: Anything not listed above as included is excluded.
This experience is
for you if you:
enjoy water activities and beach time
Like trying local foods and traditions
Like to party
Love meeting new people
We’d absolutely love to have you! But, if your ideal vacation involves relaxing on the beach daily and sleeping in this experience is not for you. Although, we do incorporate individual exploration and relaxation time into our itineraries we do more than the average group.
