Your Destination

It's often hard to discern the horizon on Zanzibar: but not because of cloudy skies or shadowed landscapes,  because of the overwhelming, sweeping blue of sea and sky that seamlessly locks together into a singularly gorgeous, sun-swept shade. If it weren't for the stunning, radiant sun, you could get swallowed by the azure panorama entirely. Let yourself be blown away by Zanzibar: an island in the Indian Ocean brimming with white beaches dotted with palm trees, coral reefs, and tropical seascapes. Dolphins and sea-turtles inhabit the waters, close enough to shore to spot while snorkelling or even scuba diving. 

Zanzibar isn't only an ocean-side paradise: the island's rich history and culture will be a thrill to any visitor. Visit the ancient Stone Town, and learn how Zanzibar acted as a crossroad for international trade between Eastern Africa, The Indian Ocean, China and Europe, resulting in a unique blend of cultures. Zanzibar was formally known as the Spice Island, and it's easy to see why to this day: clove, pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon waft through the air and are still incorporated into traditional meals.

After snorkelling, you’ll be offered refreshments to whet your appetite before heading to Kwale Island, for lunch under the tamarind trees. Drinks are served throughout the day and lunch is a buffet of grilled fish, lobster, calamari, chicken and rice, with a tasting of tropical fruits.
