Zanzibar Tanzania Vacation

What to expect on a Zanzibar Tanzania vacation?

The ultimate guide to a stress-free vacation in Zanzibar Island:  a real-life paradise island, Zanzibar boasts an array of stunning sandy beaches with vivid coral reefs, alongside the quaint charm of the historic Stone Town. Therefore, we can also organize your stay on the best beaches in Zanzibar where you can do as little or as much as you like.

Why not snorkel offshore in sparkling gin-like waters encompassed by colourful fish and – if you are lucky – get escorted by a pod of friendly dolphins? To feed your adventurous self, try the dive sites for kitesurfing, windsurfing and water-skiing or simply attempt a romantic sail in a dhow, a conventional wooden sailing boat to capture the magical African sunset. Beneath the surface of the waves, vibrant coral reefs form the backdrop to a multi-splendored array of life, including giant whale sharks, ghostly manta rays and elusive dugong.

Things to do in Zanzibar

A vacation in Zanzibar will give you a chance to relax and enjoy a wide range of different activities designed to fit well with your interests and travel style. Moreover, some of these optional extras can easily be combined with the amazing accommodation that we have “handpicked” for you on the island.

Furthermore, the paradise setting in Zanzibar has everything you might need to unwind, rejuvenate and have fun on your own terms. From unique private dive pools, to luxury spa treatments, and even fantastic underwater adventures, the options for Zanzibar beach activities are as limitless as the possibility of seeing a zebra on a safari in the vast Serengeti!

Plan Your Tailor-Made Zanzibar Beach Vacation

Our tailor-made Zanzibar beach experiences are adaptable to your needs, giving you the freedom to add some wildlife adventure to your perfect beach holiday. For wildlife, your most prized sighting in Zanzibar is likely to be one of Africa’s rarest primates, the Zanzibar red colobus monkey. This colony has been isolated on the island for at least 1,000 years and has evolved into its own distinct species, with unique coat patterns, calls and food habits. With as few as 1,500 remaining, the Zanzibar red colobus has become a symbol of conservation.

Fishing Vessel

You can book a one-day cruise on a dhow fishing vessel, to visit reefs and nearby islands. Seaweed thrives around the coast of Zanzibar and you will see it blooming like flowers in the clear waters. As a result, exports of cleaned and dried seaweed have generated a new source of wealth for the fishermen and women of this region.

Getting Around the Capital of Zanzibar – Stone Town

The capital of Zanzibar, Stone Town, is both fascinating and disorientating. A labyrinth of alleys amid whitewashed houses reveals a treasure around every corner! Whether it’s the colors, sounds and pungent smells of a market or the lively street vendors, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into a living legend. Our Stone Town tour incorporates the Palace of Wonders, the Arab Fort, and the Anglican Church. While you’re there, you can even get a snapshot of the house where Freddie Mercury was born! Take your time to get lost among the alleyways and drop into some of the town’s quaint shops, before indulging in a sunset drink at Africa House.
