TEMBO HOUSE HOTEL IN STONE TOWN ZANZIBAR
Zanzibar is a beautiful island sited in the Indian Ocean on the East Coast of Africa. It has every coastal attraction that can interest guests touring Africa, from timeworn buildings, historical traces, diverse fauna, buzzing traditional bazaars, gourmet food with distinct spices and unusual fruits. AfricanMecca visitants looking for a cultural-cum-seaside holiday will find the casual, laid-back ambience of the island very enchanting. Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, that has retained all the ancient charm of the island is also its hub with many guesthouses and hotels you can stay at. One that stands out as pioneer lodging is Tembo House Hotel. Sited in the Stone Town area of Zanzibar, Tembo Hotel has assumed different avatars from that of an American Consulate to the trading base of Cowasjee Dinshaw & Partners, the largest commercial company in its time. This unpretentious hotel also offers easy accessibility to Zanzibar's many tour attractions like Beit-al-Ajaib or House of Wonders, Old Fort, Forodhani Gardens, Tippu Tip’s House and more. You can stroll directly out to the beach from the hotel and lounge on daybeds overlooking the shimmering turquoise of the Indian Ocean where fishermen and locals go about their daily business. The hotel also has a serene swimming pool you can relax beside on your coastal holiday in Zanzibar.
Tembo has retained much of its old-world charm, and the furniture and decor are Swahili-themed with exquisite antiques adorning its nooks and crannies. They have 46 rooms to suit the preferences of every kind of unassuming traveler in Tanzania, and you can choose from rooms for a solo guest, couple to family rooms or from sea-facing or pool front rooms. Accordingly, you can book them in various categories, from Single Room, Double Room, Prime Double Room, Triple Rooms, Deluxe Suites, Family Room to Presidential Suite and Apartments. Each of the rooms includes the standard amenities of an economy accommodation such as air-conditioner, tea or coffee making supplies, hairdryer, telephone and Wi-Fi services and in-room safety box. Have your meals at their seafront Bahari Restaurant that serves good wholesome meals. You can also request them to arrange for a quiet meal on the rooftop with expansive views of the ocean. As you go exploring the Forodhani Gardens of Stone Town in the evening, you will come across many stalls selling you fresh food cooked in front of you, fragrant with spices grown on the island. You could sample some of these delicacies and finish with a succulent fruit dessert. Try shoki-shokis, bungos, durians, paw-paws and many more delightful treats that you will remember from your exploratory trip in Eastern Africa. If you would like to view the fruit and spices in their natural setting, take a trip to the famed plantations of the island. Your knowledgeable AfricanMecca guide will show you how to pick them and you could even taste them in their fresh, organic form. Also, learn about the other uses of the spices aside from the distinct flavors they impart to food. Later, do stop by at Jozani Forest on your nature vacation (read more on when is the best time to visit Zanzibar). A wildlife reserve set up in the heart of the island, it is home to the rare red colobus monkeys. Delight in their antics or revel in the sight of butterflies, birds, small amphibians and reptiles like frogs and lizards respectively.

The Zanzibar Stone Town tour guide was superlative. He was outstanding and gave us undivided attention. We felt that was great value and to be escorted round the market place and slave stations was like walking in a living museum.
