ABOUT ZANZIBAR – THE SPICE ISLAND

Zanzibar is a short hop away from the Tanzania mainland with easy flight connections to all the major tourist centres.

 

With picture postcard beaches, superb diving and deep sea fishing, a traditional Swahili culture steeped in history and the atmospheric alleyways of Stone Town, this Spice Island has something for everyone and makes the perfect beach destination to relax after your Tanzania safari.

Stone Town (Zanzibar Town) itself can be a hive of activity with traders demonstrating timeless negotiating skills along the narrow shopping streets or can be the sleepiest town imaginable depending on the time of day. 

Worthwhile excursions for Tanzania safari visitors include a city tour which brings home the true horrors of the days of slavery, visits to spice farms, outlying islands such as Changuu island with its giant tortoises, the endangered red colobus monkeys at Jozani forest and swimming with dolphins at Kizimkazi in the south.
