Top 10 Unmissable Things to Do in Zanzibar, Tanzania

Dining at The Rock Restaurant

The Rock restaurant is not named after the famous actor and retired wrestler Dwayne Johnson. The name is given to it because of its location. The restaurant is literally built on top of a rock in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Located at Pingwe Beach, the restaurant is a unique concept. You can walk to the restaurant or take a dhow depending on the tide.

Take a Dhow Cruise

Going on a dhow cruise is one of the most romantic things you can do in Zanzibar. You will get on a wooden boat (dhow) and sail in the Indian Ocean to watch the sunset. You can also go island hopping on a dhow cruise for a full day of adventure.

Hiking through Jozani Forest

The Jozani Forest is a beautiful place to go on a nature walk in Zanzibar, where you will get to see the red colobus monkey, an endangered species that is only found in this region. The forest is also home to nearly 40 different species of birds.
