Salt-white beaches, impossibly blue skies and gin-clear waters combine to make Zanzibar holidays the ultimate castaway paradise. Located in the Indian Ocean 50 miles off the coast of Tanzania and inhabited for centuries by seemingly every nation under the sun from Egyptians and Indians to Persians and Omanis, Zanzibar is a melting pot of cultures. To get a feel for the rich tapestry of influences, take the time to stroll through the maze of the medina (old town) in Stone Town and admire the crumbling facades of the old Arab palaces and the heavy Indian studded copper doors. Visit Beit al Ajaib (House
of Wonders) and learn about the history and culture of Zanzibar and the Swahili Coast. Next, head to the east coast where you’ll find the most stunning island beaches, perfect for a slow, sleepy afternoon on the powdery sand watching dhows drift by. The more actively inclined can also enjoy fishing, kayaking, kitesurfing, snorkelling and diving on the well-preserved reefs around the Zanzibar Archipelago and other Spice Islands. Combine your Zanzibar holiday with a safari in Tanzania to experience a perfect balance of relaxation and adventure in this unforgettable corner of the world.

Excellent balancing of days spent on the right locations, matching our expectations in terms of quality and strategic location. Bakari the Concierge was very responsive and helped us organise a last minute day activity in Stone Town. Our safari driver/guides were simply outstanding and made a difference when spotting animals in the national parks. We loved our complimentary honeymoon dinner on the beach organised by you, thanks again!
