Lying just off the coast of Tanzania, the Zanzibar Archipelago is one of our favourite island destinations.

For more than 2000 years, the monsoon winds have shaped the landscape and culture of Zanzibar. Along the coast, village life remains steeped in tradition as fishing dhows set sail on the high tide and women harvest seaweed from powder-white coral sands.
Don’t miss the island’s historic capital, Stone Town, with its elegant Indo-Arabian architecture. Wander the labyrinth of alleyways lined with lively restaurants and bustling bazaars, beautiful mosques and gracious colonial mansions. And be sure to visit the sultans’ palaces, old slave market and Omani fort.
Also on the north-east coast is Nungwi, a popular tourist hotspot with a thriving social scene centred around a strip of waterfront hotels, bars and restaurants. Spend your days lounging on the magnificent beaches, swimming in warm turquoise waters, or enjoying a relaxing massage. As the sun sets over the Indian Ocean, join the revellers as Nungwi comes alive, cocktails flow freely and beach bonfires are lit. Daily itineraries in this corner of paradise are delightfully simple: sunbathe, swim, party, repeat…
Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park is home to the rare and endemic Zanzibar red colobus monkey, as well as bush baby, bush pig, Aders’ duiker antelope, elephant shrew, chameleons and any number of bird and butterfly species.
