Zanzibar

Just off the east coast of Africa, Zanzibar is known as the Spice Island and is infused with African, Arab, European and Indian influences, resulting in a melting pot of culture for you to explore. The island offers a beguiling blend of beautiful beaches, incredible marine life and intriguing local history and culture.

Over many centuries, different cultures have influenced Zanzibar to make 'The Spice Island' what it is today, impacting the local culture to create the present vibrant fusion. The cuisine, culture, and accepting, friendly attitude is a reflection of the multicultural past and present of the island.

Zanzibar's Indian Ocean offers world-class watersports including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and waterskiing. Or the white sand beaches are perfect for just chilling out if you fancy something less active!

Recently declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, why not visit the fascinating historical Stone Town, the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar? It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses. You can spend many idle hours and days just wandering through this fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is the quieter gem of the north and it well know for its elephant migration. This park is Tanzania's only National Park that offers a night safari, a chance to see the animals in a unique and unforgettable way. In the peak of the dry season approximately 3,000 elephants head to the Tarangire swamp system making it an incredible place to see view them. 

Manyara National Park

This park is known for its tree-climbing lions and is one of the busiest parks in the country. It is ideally located at the bottom of the Great Rift Valley where a massive two thirds of the park is taken up by the Lake Manyara. The park is filled with natural beauty and is an ideal place for a smaller safari trip to see some hippos at the hippo pool and other various animals.
