Zanzibar Holidays & Beach Vacations

fresh water beach in ZanzibarZanzibar comes from an Arabic word Zanjibār meaning “coast of blacks”! Think of an exotic island and you'll probably be thinking about Zanzibar. This ancient island was once ruled by sultans and slave traders and served as a stepping stone for missionaries and explorers into the African continent.

Today, this jewel in the Indian Ocean attracts visitors looking to discover white sandy beaches, tropical forests and colourful coral reefs while staying at some of the quality Zanzibar beach resorts. Aptly known as the Spice Islands, Zanzibar and the nearby little-known Pemba and Mafia Islands are separated from the mainland by a narrow trait.

Stone Town on Zanzibar is a maze of winding streets lined with houses featuring magnificently carved brass-studded doors.  The islands are steeped in history and you can sense the mystique as you wonder through the bazaars and markets and marvel at the still-grand architecture!

 If you are planning to visit Zanzibar, an excursion to Stone Town is a must. What's more, the islands have some of the best beaches in Africa and are perfect spots for a post or pre safari wind-down. The palm trees and Arab dhows act as the perfect backdrop to lazy days of eating fresh seafood, exploring laid-back villages and swimming in the crystal blue waters on this paradise. It is not difficult to see why Zanzibar is considered to be one of the world's most romantic honeymoon locations; with many couples choosing to tie the knot here and spend their first few married weeks in this paradise.
