Booking a Single Room
All of our group tours are planned and operated on a twin-share basis, meaning that the standard cost is based either on individual travellers sharing accommodation with another group member of the same sex, or people who book together sharing accommodation.
Please refer to the tour notes where the single room option availability is detailed on a night by night basis for this tour, and the price for the available nights is detailed on the dates & prices tab by departure date.
For Self-Guided trips the Single Room supplement offers the option of a single room each and is charged per person. The Single Room supplement also applies to the third person in a party of three that will be accommodated in a single room.
Light on your pocket but long on authentic experiences, these tours are based in simple, sometimes local-style accommodation. If your idea of adventure travel is to experience real, everyday life then you will enjoy our Authentic style of tour. You will have the chance to stay at simple, family-run hotels and guesthouses where the lack of luxury is more than compensated for by the warm welcome and genuine insight into local life.
Sunshine Marine Lodge
Sunshine Marine Lodge is situated in a quiet location, high on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean and Mnemba Island. It is in a tranquil and peaceful setting. The rooms are spacious and simply furnished in a Zanzibari style, equipped with a ceiling fan, mosquito net and a large verandah with spectacular ocean views. The landscaped gardens are tiered and lead down to the swimming pool and restaurant area. Regular beach transfers are made several times a day from the lodge to nearby Muyuni Beach. Facilities include a dive centre and bike hire.
On standard level tailor-made tours you will stay at comfortable mid-range hotels, chosen for their location, ambiance or local character. Your rooms will be clean and well-appointed, with en suite bathrooms and air-conditioning or heating as necessary. Comfort level hotels normally have restaurants, bars and often other amenities such as a swimming pool and gardens, offering a good level of comfort at a reasonable price.
Z Hotel is located on a secluded beach in Nungwi within lush tropical gardens. Rooms have a contemporary yet African feel, with floor to ceiling glass doors leading onto a balcony which looks out across the ocean. The hotel has a pool, spa, restaurant and cocktail bar and also offers a choice of activities that can be arranged.
If you are looking for the best of both worlds, with adventurous days and indulgent nights, our Indulge level tailor-made tours may be just the answer. On these tours you can enjoy busy days packed with adventure and activity, followed by relaxing evenings unwinding in the comfort of accommodation hand-picked for its high level of comfort and service. Some hotels are full of historical interest too: a converted palace in India for example, or a restored colonial mansion in Latin America.
Hideaway of Nungwi Resort & Spa
Hideaway of Nungwi Resort & Spa offers a spectacular oceanfront setting. Situated on the north-western coast of the island, Nungwi is considered to be the most beautiful beach in Zanzibar. The beach is sheltered from strong tides, making it a perfect spot for swimming and snorkelling. The hotel has many facilities, including an infinity swimming pool, pool table, library, tennis court and fitness centre, or you may wish to partake in some kayaking or windsurfing, which are also available to guests. Rooms are elegantly decorated with a touch of African design and each Luxury Junior Suite has a private terrace or balcony.
