Accommodations

All the accommodations are in the heart of Stone Town, and are located within close proximity from each other. The furthest two points (Stone Town House and Park Hyatt hotel) are within 5 minutes walk from each other.

Our female travellers usually stay in our very own NomuHub Hostel while male travellers in a different one. The common area in our NomuHub Hostel can be used by all travellers.

We also offer 4 star and 5 star hotel upgrades with our accommodation partners, either in single room or twin-sharing basis. You may book these as add-ons in your booking process, but please note that confirmation of your reservation is subject to availability. During peak seasons in Zanzibar, it can be very difficult to secure a reservation so the earlier you book, the better.

Meals

There are many heterogeneous influences that are reflected in Zanzibar’s cuisine due to the multicultural nature that became a part of Zanzibar. The mixture of culinary traditions include Bantu, Arab, Portuguese, Indian, British and even Chinese cuisines.

The medical program aims at delivering medical aid and services to rural communities that lack appropriate or sufficient or easily-accessible medical facilities and/or medications. Our travellers (medical students, interns, residents, licensed and experienced healthcare professionals) work with a group of local doctors from our partnering NGO to achieve this goal.

STUDENT5 :  5% off for students (Student ID must be provided as proof, otherwise discount is not applicable)

GROUP5 :  5% for each member of a group of 3 or more (if less than 3, discount is not applicable)

Please note:

  • Kindly ensure to follow our policies regarding our discount codes
  • More than one discount cannot be used in the same transaction
  • Discounts are not applicable to add-ons, such as 5-Star & 4-Star hotel upgrade or additional touristic activities
  • Credit card service charge applies to online transactions

It's important that you visit a health practitioner and inform them about your travel plans for health-related recommendations. We advice the Yellow Fever vaccination to be done at least one week before your travel date. We also recommend travellers to take anti-mosquito measures (insect repellent, wear long-sleeved tops & bottoms).

In regards to COVID-19, make sure to thoroughly read page 19 of our Manual. For more information on our COVID-19 updates, kindly click here. We strongly recommend all our travelers to consider getting travel insurance that includes COVID coverage.

Finally, please remember that booking flights is your responsibility. We recommend FlyDubai as they offer conveniently direct flight journeys at an affordable price. You can read more about exact dates you should book your flights, how to send them to us etc. in our Manual.
