Zanzibar

Overview

The name alone is likely to conjure up images of spice markets, palm-fringed beaches, and white-sailed dhows on a turquoise sea – and happily, the reality doesn’t disappoint. Lying only a short distance off the Tanzania coast but at the crossroads of Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, Zanzibar has long been at the center of the Indian Ocean experience in East Africa and a Zanzibar holiday is a sensory experience par excellence.

Go on spice tours, taste local dishes, and walk the cobbled streets of the capital’s old quarter Stone Town, now a World Heritage Site buzzing with colorful back-street markets and local flavors. And then of course there are the Zanzibar beaches: perfect for anyone who simply wants to enjoy a lazily luxurious beach vacation – Zanzibar and its outlying islands are home to some of the finest beaches in East Africa, as well as a number of its best dive sites.

You won’t want somewhere to stay in either: one of the world’s most romantic honeymoon destinations, Zanzibar has accommodation that ranges from luxury beachfront cottages to exclusive boutique hotels and elegant spa resorts; parents on the other hand will be delighted by Zanzibar’s family-friendly hotels and safe-swimming beaches.

Accessible from travel hub Dar es Salaam and combined easily with top Tanzania safari destinations such as the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, Zanzibar can be part of a safari and beach tour or as a stand-alone holiday.
