Zanzibar

The historic spice island of Zanzibar lies just off the coast of Tanzania, and promises everyone a once-in-a-lifetime holiday experience, whether that be at the tail end of a thrilling safari or independently as an island adventure. Zanzibar caters for every traveller, whether that be those looking to backpack on a budget, or those interested in enjoying a luxurious and exotic getaway.

 

In terms of attractions, Zanzibar is as varied as it is beautiful, ensuring guests in search of diversity are constantly surprised. Stone Town should be number 1 on any tourist's bucket list. Charismatic, full of life and rich in history and culture, the quaint, cobbled streets of Stone Town are a delight to explore and offer up no end of treats, including the relaxed seafront promenade, the faded colonial buildings, the colourful food markets and unique touches such as the Aldabra giant tortoises at Prison Island (a short 30-minute boat ride from Stone Town itself). Given its historical focus on the spice industry, an informative spice tour is also highly recommended!

 

For those who simply wish to lay back, soak up the sunshine and unwind with a cocktail in hand, Zanzibar's many beaches are also a delight. Favourites include Nungwi and Kendwa in the north of the island, where tourists are sure to be awe-struck by an untouched Indian Ocean paradise.
