Zanzibar


The name conjures thoughts of exotic adventure. This island, steeped in culture and history is the perfect place to relax after your safari adventure or just come and relax as a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Zanzibar has something for everyone. The perfect place for diving and snorkelling. A host of other water sports ranging from kite-surfing to wind-surfing or just relaxing in a local dhow. There are historical and cultural tours, a chance to visit the spice gardens that made the island a vital trading port for centuries and earned it the nickname of "The Spice Island". It is also one of the few places where you can view the rare red Colobus monkey.

Zanzibar is actually an archipelago made of several islands, the largest being Unguja (which we usually refer to as the island of Zanzibar). The next largest is Pemba, a few kilometres to the north and best know for its amazing snorkelling and SCUBA diving locales. There are smaller islands scattered around the main island, a few of them with small resorts. The most popular and exclusive of these is Mnemba Island. There is also the eco-resort - Chumbe Island and just a short distance from Stone Town, there is Chapwani Island.

Further to the south of Zanzibar is Mafia Island. Mafia Island is not part of the Zanzibar archipelago but is part of Tanzania and is a popular tourist destination for relaxation, fishing and diving.
