Welcome to the historical, exotic, heaven on Earth; the beautiful island of Zanzibar. Mainly Zanzibar comprises Unguja and Pemba but Unguja Island is mostly referred to as Zanzibar. Known for its historical slave market, the main court of the sultan of Oman, its Indian and European influences, where all of the mixed cultures have left their unique inheritance on the island.
Inland you’ll find the farms where spices, herbs and fruits are produced for centuries and touring through the area you’ll get surrounded by their unique exotic scents. The stunning white beaches around the island, where daily life feels like it hasn’t changed for centuries, are a well treat to either relax or enjoy activities offered like scuba diving, snorkling, fishing or a swim with the dolphins.
Zanzibar has its unique wildlife in Jozani forest where you can spot Red Colobus monkeys, Sykes monkeys, Ader’s Duikers, Suni antelopes, Bushpigs, Elephant shrews, chameleons and different species of birds.
Zanzibar Island is accessible by boat from Dar es Salaam and flights which run regularly to and from Dar es Salam, Arusha, Tanga and Pemba. Both can be arranged for our clients.
There are many hotels and lodges in Zanzibar which really satisfy your budget from a low to a high range and are located very close to the beach. Do not hesitate to ask us for some more information as well as organising a tailor made tour in this healing beautiful Island in Africa.
