The magical tropical spice island of Zanzibar! An ideal addition to any Safari Holiday in Tanzania. A welcome easy getaway for families or ideal for a romantic break or honeymoon paradise! Zanzibar is located in the Indian Ocean just off the coast of Tanzania. There are numerous islands that make up the Archipelago but Zanzibar is the biggest and most widely used by visitors. Mafia Island, Pemba Island and Mnemba Island are becoming part of an adventurous travelers itinerary, but these islands are still relatively unknown.

Stonetown is a World Heritage Site and a wonderful maze of tiny alleyways, multiple colors, cultural interactions, cobbled streets, beautiful historical buildings, an explorer’s paradise. Stonetown is the gateway to the island. The Zanzibar airport is located here and many of the tours and activities on the island depart from here.
