This three-centre Zanzibar trip takes you to some very special properties on the south west coast - Fumba Beach Lodge, Unguja Lodge and Swahili House, in the centre of Stone Town. Highlights are the diving and snorkelling at both Fumba and Unguja, the transfer between beach lodges by dhow and the unique Arabian influence of Stone Town's old quarter.
