His family was practicing Zoroastrians, a fire religion, founded more than 3000 years ago and believed to be the world’s oldest religion. After studying at boarding school in Bombay, Farouk Bulsara returned to Zanzibar, leaving with his parents and younger sister at the age of 18 for London, where his transformation into Freddie Mercury was completed. Wander through Shangani streets where Freddie Mercury was born and lived with his family. Your guide will take you to the Zanzibar Gallery shop, once home to Mercury’s family where you’ll receive a Freddie Mercury t-shirt.
From here, you’ll head to the mystical Zoroastrian temple, where Mercury worshipped with his family. You’ll end the day with a seafront lunch at Mercury’s restaurant, a modern day tribute to the man and the music.
