Description

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 and then have lunch at Mercury's restaurant, a modern day tribute to the man and the music.

In the afternoon, relax on one of the vessels and let's sail away on a magical sunset cruise to end your day. Each dhow will have a personal guide who will be with you during the cruise and give you a tour of Stone Town from the water. You may also ask him any questions you may have about Zanzibar. Watch the colors of the sky change from bright pinks and blues to magnificent golden colors as you sail back toward the glimmering lights of Stone Town in the distance.
