Tailor-made Zanzibar Holidays

Exotic spices fill the air in Zanzibar, a wonder of white sands and UNESCO World Heritage towns draped in sea-faring history. Off its famed shores, the fluttering sails of Arabian dhows skim across the surface of the Indian Ocean, which hides treasures beneath: elegant sea turtles and swarms of tropical fish. The boats are propelled by trade and monsoon winds that, for centuries, have brought explorers from all over the world to Zanzibar. Settlers from Arabia, Africa, Persia and India have made the island home, carving a living from fishing or farming the fertile soils, which are planted with fragrant cloves, vanilla and nutmeg.

Baskets piled high with these heady spices fill the shops in Stone Town, Zanzibar’s ancient capital, where mosques sound eerily-beautiful calls to prayer. Get lost in winding streets lined with merchant houses with carved teak doors, stumbling upon the sultan’s House of Wonders and a sobering former slave market. History pangs sated, it’s time to sink onto the soft sands of Zanzibar’s world-famous beaches and watch the buttery sun dissolve into the depths of the ocean. As evening falls, head to the Forodhani night market where stalls buckle under the weight of seafood kebabs and piles of samosas, while smiling vendors fry Zanzibar pizza and serve up freshly-squeezed sugarcane juice.

A beach break in Zanzibar is the perfect, relaxing end to an action-packed safari in Tanzania, so speak to our Africa experts about booking a stay on this coveted spice island.
