Zanzibar Excusrions

Hi. I was hoping for some information on excursions in Zanzibar. I am planning a 8 night trip with my partner in October. Since the different areas of Zanzibar all sound great we are thinking of travelling around. So far we have chosen Imani Beach Villa as a base to explore Stone Town, Teddys Place in Paje and Z Hotel in Nungwi

I was wondering which locations are best to do which tours - we would like to do the usual things such as a Spince Tour, trip to Joazani Forest and swimming with the dolphins in the south.

Does anyone know if it is possible to combine a transfer with a trip for example spice tour en route from stone town to paje.

Any info much appreciated for a first timer!

I don`t get the logic of comparison between these Hotel with the Z Hotel.But is your choice.

The option to cut off cost to avoid long transfers is to set it as follows:

Based Imani Beach Villa:-

Take a Stonetown Tour from this base and Spice Tour as well because is not far from there.

Or make Spice Tour enroute from Paje to The Z Hotel because is on way to North Coast .

Jozani Forest is on the way to East Coast(Paje) and must cross Jozani Forest before you get to the East Coast,so the road is in the Forest,just do this on the day you go to Paje.

Dolphin Trip:

East Coast is not far to Southern part(Kizimkazi Village),do this from there.
