Walk the streets of Stone Town and follow in the footsteps of Zanzibar's most famous son, Freddie Mercury, a skilled musician and lead singer of the rock band Queen.

Born Farouk Bulsara on September 5, 1946, Freddie Mercury and his family emigrated to Zanzibar from India. After studying at a boarding school in Bombay, Freddie returned to Zanzibar before leaving for London at the age of 18 beginning his transformation to the great musician we know today.

Wander through Shangani where Freddie Mercury was born and lived with his family. Your guide will take you to the Zanzibar Gallery shop, once home to the Bulsara family where you will receive a Freddie Mercury t-shirt. From here, proceed to the mystical Zoroastrian temple, where Mercury and his family practiced their religion.

End the day with a seafront lunch at Mercury's restaurant, a modern day tribute to the man and the music.
