Zanzibar and the Tanzanian Coast: a unique blend of Africa, Arabia and Europe
Our Zanzibar holidays will take you to an exotic island that is fringed by tropical beaches and surrounded by coral reefs. Known by generations of traders as the Spice Island, Zanzibar’s rich history can still be found in the architecture of its labyrinthine streets and its unique cultural mix. Your tailor-made Zanzibar tour will bring you close to this intriguing culture that blends African, Arabic and European influences.
There is easy flight access to Zanzibar from Dar es Salaam on the mainland coast of Tanzania. You may wish to explore this city before your visit. There’s plenty to see and shop for in this special city, including the Makonde Carvings and the surfeit of handicrafts at the Mwenge Open Market.
Forty-five miles off the coast of Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar is where you can simply unwind in the lap of luxury on pure white sands or, if you’re feeling adventurous, enjoy the beauties that await under the turquoise waters on a world-class diving experience.
Back on dry land you can explore the winding pathways of Zanzibar’s Stone Town, stumbling upon tucked-away spice markets and historic architecture adorned with ornately carved doors.
Most of all, though, Zanzibar is the place to relax and just be.
