Zanzibar is an archipelago of tropical islands just off the coast of Tanzania and it can be perfectly tied into an East African safari itinerary. What could be more idyllic than combining palm strewn beaches and superb scuba diving with an exploration of the country’s wildest landscapes in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater? Zanzibar is a cultural melting pot of African and Arabic influences that has become the island’s unique identity. At its centre is Stone Town – a World Heritage Site and home to bustling spice markets, old architecture, and local flavour. On its coastlines are azure waters and majestic coral reefs housing spectacular marine life and world-class diving opportunities.Enquire Now
There are two main islands in the archipelago and the quality of the beaches and activities depends on which part of the islands you travel to. The northern coast is where calm waters, clear seas, coral reefs and ideal swimming and snorkelling conditions preside. Changes tides and sand bars along the east coast of Zanzibar Island create good surfing conditions, while Stone Town and all its historic and cultural wonder is located on the west coast. Pemba and Mafia Islands, as well as Mnemba Island off the northeast coast of Zanzibar are known for scuba diving, and they are wilder and more remote than the mainland. Quality, luxury, and quiet while you indulge in tropical beach life in exclusivity.
