Zanzibar is a unique coral island lying in the Indian Ocean a short distance from Tanzania. The island is without doubt the number one beach location in East Africa, an absolutely wonderful island of tropical palm fringed white-sand beaches, lush plantations, an incredible history and a fascinating culture. Explore Zanzibar and leave refreshed, with a wonderful story to tell. Ending your safari holidays with an island style experience on Zanzibar will definitely leave you wanting to come back for more.
From the shores the great European explorers Burton, Speke and Livingstone set out on their voyages of discovery into the hinterland. The island experiences 7 to 8 hrs of sunshine daily, has very calm and warm Indian Ocean blue waters with visibility of up to 30 metres. Despite of ever increasing numbers of visitors, the island of Zanzibar still remains resolutely African ... a passionate, intense, and relatively challenging place to visit.
