Zanzibar

Country Flag

The Zanzibar Archipelago or the 'Spice Islands' off the coast of Tanzania have an allure renowned the world over and with many good reasons. An Indian Ocean paradise with an eclectic mix of cultures, a fascinating colonial history and a thriving community - get set to be wow'd. Whether you are planning a romantic honeymoon or just in need of a relaxing beach holiday Zanzibar is the place for you. 

Beyond Zanzibar Island's historic Stone Town, with its myriad of narrow streets, markets and historic buildings the islands of Zanzibar are littered with palm-fringed beaches and pristine coral reefs. Zanzibar's superb beaches are best along the east coast and to the north, many of these beaches are protected by coral reefs offshore and have fine white coral sand - a paradise awaits!

Unguja is the largest island within the archipelago, often referred to as Zanzibar Island itself, however Pemba Island 50 kms to the north is perhaps the hidden gem to be discovered on a visit to Zanzibar. Pemba Island is hilly and verdant and seldom visited by tourists. Here you will find life to be laid-back, offering the visitor a largely undiscovered cultural experience to be savoured. Mafia Island, also part of the Zanzibar Archipelago is located around 100 kms south of Zanzibar Island and has some truly luxurious beach-side accommodation. 

Why not try some of the extraordinary diving and snorkelling to be found here? on the stunning coral reefs dotted along the coastline?
