You have experienced life in a wild arena. You have traversed the great plains of Tanzania and Kenya and seen top predators hunting vast herds of game. Now you’re ready for quietness; a sense of timelessness; life at a different pace.
Lying in turquoise waters off the coast of Tanzania, the tropical islands of the Zanzibar Archipelago welcome you with coconut plantations, spice farms, exquisite beaches and world-class diving. Standing at the crossroads of ancient trade routes between Africa, Asia and the Orient, the spice islands were prized by seafarers of the Indian Ocean and have been luring travellers for centuries.
Discover World Heritage-listed Stone Town with its intricate architecture, distinctive culture and labyrinthine maze of stone alleyways and tiny lanes. Follow your nose and you’ll arrive at a bustling marketplace with stalls overflowing with fresh fruit and vegetables – some familiar, but others completely alien – and an array of colourful spices; their heady aromas reaching out to all visitors.
Our experts will also tell you about taking romantic sailing trips in local dhows at sunset, or exploring the vibrant rainforest interior of Pemba. They’ll introduce you to the undersea world of Mnemba Island – a paradise for divers – and the sun-kissed, palm-lined beaches of the island’s eastern coast. Where you can snorkel, swim, dive, kite surf, or simply beach yourself.
Zanzibar, perfect for relaxation after an action-packed safari or as an exotic escape in its own right.
