ZANZIBAR ISLAND

VISIT ZANZIBAR ISLAND

Zanzibar Island is one of those magical travel names, richly evocative even to the many Westerners who would have no idea where to start looking for it on a global map. Steeped in history and blessed with a sultry tropical climate, Zanzibar is that rare travel destination that genuinely does live up to every expectation. Whether it’s a quick cultural fix you’re after, scintillating diving, or just a palm-lined beach where you can laze away the day, some time on Zanzibar is the perfect way to round off a dusty Africa safari on the Tanzanian mainland.

Zanzibar Island offers tourists facilities suitable to all tastes and budgets. For many, the highlight of a holiday on the island is a tour of the old Stone Town, with its traditional Swahili atmosphere and wealth of fascinating buildings. For others, it is the sea and the coral reefs, which offer diving, snorkeling, and game fishing to compare with anywhere in East Africa. And then there are the clove and coconut plantations that cover the interior of the ‘Spice Island’; the dolphins of Kizimkazi; the colobus monkeys of Jozani; and the giant sea turtles of ZANZIBAR and above all, the seemingly endless tropical beaches.
