Zanzibar Archipelago Beach Holiday Vacations

Zanzibar Islands Archpaleogo Traditional Canoes

 

 

Zanzibar Main Island lies off the Tanzania cost, only 25 miles away but offering a completely different ambience. A stay at one of the many Zanzibar resorts offers the perfect end to a safari holiday vacation. Zanzibar offers an alluring mix of beautiful beaches, palm groves and spice farms mixed with a rich trading history and culture.

Zanzibar Island is a bewitching place; the rich green valleys are filled with the aroma of spices whilst historic Stone Town, once the capital of a vast Arabic empire, is an atmospheric maze of narrow streets, street markets and coral stone steps.

The Zanzibar resorts offer barefoot powder-white sandy beaches shaded by palm trees; snorkeling and diving in their turquoise coral waters; as well as a range of excursions such as dhow sunset cruises, deep sea diving adventures, fishing trips, tours to the spice farms or to Jozani forest, depending on where you stay. The waters are warm and the coral reefs are great for snorkeling. There is excellent diving from the Zanzibar resorts in the north of the island and the opportunity to swim with dolphins from the resorts in the south.

Zanzibar Island Archipelago is actually the collective name for a number of islands. You might like to stay at the less well-known Pemba Island which is a 30 minute flight from Zanzibar, or one of the many smaller islands such as the exclusive VIP private Mnemba Island - which offers the ultimate private island retreat - or Mafia Island. Atmospheric ruins on Mafia Island retreat are the legacy of its having been on the trade routes of Persian dhows for centuries.

The climate in Zanzibar is tropical and warm all year round with a hot humid season from November to April and rain falling in November and again in April / May.
