Your Destination

Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous part of Tanzania, and consists of numerous small islands and two large ones. Essque Zalu Zanzibar is nestled in a natural cove on the Northeast coast, overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Amble through Stone Town, the world's oldest Swahili coastal trading city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Browse the curios and artworks in the bazaars and markets or just mosey around the mosques and temples. If the history of rock music is your passion, you can even check out the birthplace of the legendary Freddie Mercury!

Board a traditional wooden dhow and set sail for Prison Island, nowadays just the spot for a sunbathe or snorkel with giant tortoises. If nature is your thing, chance a sighting of bottle-nosed or humpback dolphins then head south on a deep wall dive and explore the local marine life amidst world-class coral reef.

The capital of Tanzania, Dar es Salaam can be reached within 2 hours by ferry and is well worth a visit. Dar es Salaam is a hustling, bustling seaport on the coast of Tanzania offering scenes of breathtaking beauty.
