Day 3 - Saturday, February 9th: Stone Town City Tour / Festival We will spend today exploring beautiful Stone Town. Known as Mji Mkongwe, Swahili for "old town"; it is the old part of Zanzibar City. Stone Town was a flourishing centre of the spice trade as well as the slave trade in the 19th century. It is a city of significant historical and artistic importance in East Africa. Its architecture, mostly dating back to the 19th century, reflects the diverse influences underlying Swahili, with a unique mixture of Arab, Persian, Indian and European elements. For this reason, the town was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. Interestingly, it is also the birth place of Freddy Mercury from Queen! We will have a guide taking us through the old town, its old winding alleyways and its fascinating history. For the remainder of the day we will have free time to expore on our own and after we'll have time to enjoy the music festival before heading back to Nungwi beach.
