Oman and Zanzibar Beach for Families

Inspirational island getaway family holiday to Tanzania and Oman

A memorable family vacation combining a beachfront sanctuary on the Gulf of Oman, with a tropical island paradise off the east coast of Africa. Experience lavish facilities and excellent water sports for the whole family in 2 resorts that you need not leave for your entire stay.  First, head to Oman and the expansive Al Bandar at Shangri-La Barr al Jissah Resort. Join the dedicated turtle ranger and take part in educational activities as part of the hotel’s Turtle Care Project that protects endangered green and hawksbill turtles, then relax on the hotel’s lazy river as it meanders through the gardens. Make the most of the huge choice of activities– from daily dolphin-watching and guided snorkelling trips to dive excursions and thrilling motorized water sports. Scuba diving courses, including kids’ diving can be booked, while a kids’ club with daily activities completes the picture. 

Then it’s time to enjoy 5 nights in a 2-bedroom villa at Baraza Resort and Spa on the incredible tropical island of Zanzibar.  The family can be as active or as relaxed as you want with plenty of activities on offer from diving and snorkeling to beach volleyball and spa treatments.
