holiday destination perfect for those wanting a mix of idyllic beaches
adventure. Housing fantastic tourist spots such as Cheetah Rock and Nungwi Beach, this is a great destination for couples
wanting an amazing tropical holiday.
Just 28-miles from Tanzania
via ferry, Zanzibar is made up of several islands with the two largest, Ugunja and Pemba, being the most popular. The capital, Zanzibar City
, can be found in Ugunja and has a wide array to see and discover from the famous Prison Island to the historical Stone Town. Home to ruins brimming with historic stories to tell, the most popular point of interest is Palace Museum which houses a fantastic slavery exhibition. Culture aside, a short drive from the capital is Nakupenda Beach, a deserted island escape boasting crystal clear waters and pristine golden sands.
Zanzibar is well known for its spices, so a visit to Tangawizi Spice Farm is a must. Learn how spices are produced and cropped, with the chance to get hands on in the production room. If you would rather eat spicy food, the island is littered with various restaurants serving traditional African cuisine with extra heat. 6 Degrees South can be found in Stone Town for a great lunch after you have explored the ruins. If you have come during the two rain seasons – mid-March to late May and again in November – you probably won’t have to wait for a table. Dine on traditional African dishes as well as Western indulgences with an island kick atop the rooftop bar accompanied by live music. Is there anything more ideal?
This collection of harmonious islands truly caters for everyone. With watersport
s, hiking and the chance to get up close and personal with wildlife, we are sure you will be in your absolute element here.
