Zanzibar


Zanzibar has become synonymous with beautiful white sand beaches and stunning coral reefs in crystal clear waters. The archipelago consists of two larger islands – Unguja and Pemba. Where Unguja is famous for its beaches, its resorts, and historic Stone Town Pemba is sometimes known as ‘The Green Island’ and is known for its spice production and its pristine dive sites.

Many people come to Tanzania for their dream safari experience, but this idyllic archipelago offers an equally valuable opportunity for you to take a few days to unwind in Tanzania’s very own slice of paradise.

Zanzibar offers you the ultimate beach and leisure experience. For those who love the sun, sand, and surf – Zanzibar is a perfect escape.
