Nicknamed the spice island, Zanzibar is one of the jewels of the Indian Ocean. A place where Arabia meets Africa the island has lured visitors for centuries and has a wealth of history and culture thanks to its fertile lands, tropical oceans and trade routes. You get a sense of a bygone era with the fishing villages and their traditional dhows and rigger canoes among the swaying palm trees.

Sea life

The turquoise warm sea around Zanzibar withholds an underwater world of tropical life, diving among the coral reefs you will see schools of colourful fish, sharks, manta rays, turtles, dolphins and even whales!

What to do in Zanzibar

You must pay a visit to the capital, Stone Town. Get lost in the maze of tiny streets, bustling markets, intricate wood carvings and unique large brass doors. Weaving through them you will see, smell, touch and taste true authentic Zanzibar. The rest of the island is dotted with indigenous forests, ancient ruins and picturesque white sandy beaches. Take a trip to the spice plantations to learn about the lucrative, fascinating and tasty experience of learning about the exported flavours, which fuelled the economy of Zanzibar over the past 2 centuries.

Who is Zanzibar good for?

Zanzibar is the ultimate destination for any traveller – find upmost romance in one of the delightful boutique hotels with private pools for any honeymooner, or ultimate kids haven at a beautiful hotel on the beach with endless activities to entertain any family or group of friends.

Where to stay in Zanzibar

Baraza Resort & Spa

As though it was taken right out of a movie, this resort is an Arabian splendour. It has elegant dramatic arches that grace its passages in addition to the delicate handmade Swahili furniture and luxurious fabrics that feature in all the rooms and common areas.

Matemwe Lodge

A 60-minute drive from Stone Town and a 30-minute boat ride away from Mnemba Island, Matemwe is another great escape.

The Residence

Set on a whopping 32 hectares of tropical gardens this has to be one of the biggest resorts I visited on the Island. 66 beautifully designed luxury villas.
