What to do on Zanzibar
Unique forest reserves and spice plantations make up much of the interior, while Stone Town, the Island's capital, offers an intriguing past shown in its varied architecture and hypnotic atmosphere. Relatively new to tourism, the charm of these enchanting islands shines through, and the famous Zanzibari hospitality is extended to all who embrace the culture and traditional values of the destination.
Where to stay on Zanzibar
Stone Town has some unique properties that have been converted from old residences and palaces. On the beaches, resorts offer Zanzibari style accommodation and warm, friendly service. Standards overall tend to be good and relaxed.
Holiday ideas on Zanzibar
Follow a safari in Kenya or Tanzania with a beach break in Zanzibar, or just head straight to the beach from the UK. Flights are daily, so most durations are possible!
A holiday to Zanzibar offers the visitor a mix of lovely scenery and beautiful beaches, unique culture and an intriguing past. A cosmopolitan population made up from a multitude of cultures make this a distinctive destination, where tolerant Islamic traditions remain important and the pace of life is slow. Zanzibar's long history of seafarers, merchants, travellers and slaves makes a Zanzibar holiday a truly different destination.
