A tropical paradise


A tropical paradise

Zanzibar is a tropical paradise with unique blend of Africa, Arabia and Europe influence. Popular as a post-safari choice, a Zanzibar holiday can also be a great stand-alone escape.

Zanzibar is everything you want from an Indian Ocean island – mile upon mile of white sand beaches lined with palm trees and blue turquoise waters. It is also the birth place of Freddie Mercury.

The Zanzibar Archipelago

There are more than 40 islands spread throughout the entire Zanzibar archipelago, with Zanzibar being the largest. Zanzibar's landscapes are like a colouring book. White-sand beaches, thick green forests, sapphire mangroves and flat grasslands are all within an hour's drive. It epitomises exotic. It is the perfect destination for so many, whether you are a family, honeymooner, solo traveller, or simply looking for a couple's escape. We also tend to send clients to Pemba, Mafia, Fanjove and Mnemba, which are smaller and perfect for clients who want something slightly more rustic, private or luxurious.

Zanzibar's Stone Town

Stone Town, Zanzibar island's capital, dates back to the 1st century, and over the years, African, Arabian, Indian and European influences have blended to create the way of life here. It's full of magnificent things to see and do, from massive catholic cathedrals and vintage colonial-style houses to authentic Hamamni Persian baths. The entire district's been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Activities in Zanzibar

Without surprise, activities are focused around the beach. Sunset cruises, snorkelling, and diving trips are offered from every property. You can swim with dolphins at Kizimkazi, see the giant sea turtles at Nungwi or kite surf on Paje Beach. You can also visit the colobus monkeys of Jozani Forest if you are able to drag yourself away from the beach!

Best time to visit Zanzibar

The best time to visit Zanzibar is either from December to March or from June to October during the dry seasons. December to March is the hottest and most humid time twinned with more tropical weather, where June to October has more predictably dry days. However, it is worthwhile travelling at most times of the year, with balmy temperatures between 26°C and 34°C and sunshine generally the norm. The Christmas/New Year period is a very popular time to travel and needs to be booked well in advance.
