To complement your wildlife safari experience why not take a short flight and relax for a few days on the exotic spice island of Zanzibar where you can take in historic and bustling Stone Town as well as ‘chill out’ on the white beaches of Nungwi in the north of the island.
Zanzibar, lying in the Indian Ocean just 40km off the Tanzanian mainland, has so much to offer. Whether you wish to relax on paradise beaches and go snorkelling or diving and maybe take in a sunset cruise on a fishing dhow or absorb some of the culture and history of this fascinating island whilst enjoying hospitality difficult to match anywhere else in the world, Zanzibar will not disappoint you.
Whether you are planning your honeymoon, a relaxing holiday, or just wishing to escape to an idyllic corner of the world, Zanzibar is your perfect destination.
To get the best of Zanzibar we suggest you spend a few days in the busy and bustling Stone Town in the south-west of the island, and then relax for a few more days on the exotic beaches on the north or east coasts.
Stone Town, on the west coast of Zanzibar, is the heart of the island. It has a magical and exciting atmosphere. You can lose yourself in the maze of narrow twisting streets, wonder at the old but still magnificent buildings and enjoy the bustle of the busy markets. Spice tours run daily from the town. You can take boat trips to smaller islands or take a guided tour of the former slave market. There are plenty of good hotels, restaurants and bars, as well as the lively barbecues along the sea front every evening and many stalls along the streets that sell local crafts.
Nungwi is on the northernmost tip of the Island, about 1 hour’s drive from Stone Town. Without doubt, you will find the best beaches on the island here. This is Paradise. You can just relax on a quiet beach, or take advantage of the many activities available – snorkelling, diving, going on a sunset cruise in a fishing dhow or on one of the other boat trips. And there is plenty of social life at the beach bars and restaurants. After a few days in Nungwi it is hard to tear yourself away!
In Zanzibar you have a wide choice of accommodation based on your preferences and budget. You will be escorted to your hotels by one of our guides who will be available to assist you throughout your stay.
