On Spice Islands and Tanzanian Coast holidays you can enjoy miles of unspoiled white sand beaches; watersports such as kayaking and kite-surfing in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, and diving and snorkelling on vibrant reefs - the perfect complement to a Tanzanian safari. The so-called Spice Islands of the fabulous Zanzibar Archipelago - namely Pemba, Zanzibar and Mafia Island - are all different but equally fantastic. Just south of Zanzibar is Mafia Island, home to some of the richest coral reefs in the world and to Tanzania's first Marine Park. Needless to say, as a result Mafia Island holidays are great for snorkelling and diving,
and whale shark sightings are virtually guaranteed off of the coast of Mafia island from October to February each year. North of Zanzibar is the other main island - Pemba - haunt of honeymooners and also excellent diving and deep sea fishing. If you don't fancy island life, keep to the mainland where we can recommend some stunning white sand beaches, many of which are pretty low key and less developed than the more popular Zanzibar island. Pangani Beach, for example, was voted one of the world's best by the Sunday Times; or for a quick chill before you fly home, head to a beach just 20 minutes south of the capital, Dar es Salaam, but that feels a world away.

What our clients say about us
Tanzania customer reviews (9 reviews)
4.6/5
I wanted to take the time to say a HUGE thank you for organising our dream honeymoon right down to the smallest details. We had an amazing time across all three locations and loved the letters you had handwritten and sent to our accommodations to welcome us in each of them, we also received a welcome home card which was a lovely touch. Our holiday was amazing and the Rayavadee was a particular highlight on the trip. We've never been anywhere quite as brilliant. We filled our days on the beach, by the pool, drinking cocktails, eating amazing food and visiting the beauties of Pang Nam Bay and the Phi Phi Islands. We also had a cooking class which was amazing as well, we're going to attempt a new Thai recipe every week. Once again, thank you so much for everything, we'll be sure to recommend you to anyone planning a holiday in the future. Fantastic service and job well done.
