Sport & Leisure

Our personal Navigators are always on hand to guide you through your stay. They'll see to your every wish however big or small. So if you take a liking to the artwork in the lobby, they'll arrange for you to bring it home! Or if you need help with an activity plan, just call them for some in-the-know suggestions:

If you have a week:

• Follow in the trail of Dr Livingstone – one of Africa’s greatest explorers - and discover the history of the island.
• Take in the expanse of the famous spice plantations - cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and lemongrass - that propelled the island to the height of its trading glory.
• For adventure-lovers, let your personal Navigator arrange for you to scale Tanzania's volcanic Mount Meru, at 4,566m it is the fifth highest peak in Africa.
• Hike along the Marangu route or camp outside with the elements.
• Safari in a game reserve where weird and wonderful wildebeest roam the plains. 

If you have a day or two:

• Amble through Stone Town, the world's oldest Swahili coastal trading city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
• Browse the curios and artworks in the bazaars and markets or just mosey around the mosques and temples.
• If the history of rock music is your passion, you can even check out the birthplace of the legendary Freddie Mercury!
• Board a traditional wooden dhow and set sail for Prison Island, a former detention centre for the African slaves. Nowadays, this is an ideal place to sunbathe or snorkel with giant turtles.
• If nature is your thing, chance a sighting of bottle-nosed or humpback dolphins, then head south on a deep wall dive and explore the local marine life amidst world-class coral reefs.

If you only have a couple of hours:

• Looking for a thrill? Try your hand at kite-surfing or trek the forest in search of red Colobus monkeys and the fabled Zanzibar leopard.
• Just prefer to chill? Salute the sun at the ocean's edge, languish in the grand infinity pool or indulge in a hydrotherapy treatment at our Spa.
• Why not inspire your artistic leanings with a stroll through our gallery featuring paintings, sculptures, glassworks and photographs from the local and regional artistic community.
• When dusk rolls in, step onto the deck of a traditional dhow, sip at sundowners and cruise into the setting African sky.
• Next to the hotel, sea sport activities include scuba diving, jet-ski and parasailing.
