Zanzibar and Islands
The spice isle of Zanzibar is the star attraction of Tanzania's tropical islands, with spectacular diving, crisp white-sand beaches and a unique blend of Swahili and Arabian influence, with a 2,000 year history of sea-trading. Zanzibar city and historic Stone Town are set pieces on any itinerary, where you'll embark on spice tours and find a wide variety of accommodation, both old and new - many of which are marked by the island's heritage through their distinctive architecture. The palm lined beaches and warm Indian Ocean waves lapping the sand is nothing short of idyllic and a host of water sport activities are the gateway to bright coral reefs and vivid marine life. Set off the coast of Zanzibar, Pemba Island is a place of authentic barefoot luxury that doesn't disappoint and is a quieter option compared to its well-known neighbour.
