The exotic island paradise

Made up of two large islands and around 51 small ones, this exquisite destination is still one of the best-kept secrets in Africa. With its fascinating Stone Town, historical slave trading sites and magnificent beaches, Zanzibar is an African adventure just waiting to be explored.

Its crystal clear waters offer world-class water sports including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, wind-surfing, waterskiing and even sailing on traditional local shows. Sometimes referred to as the Spice Islands, Zanzibar produces cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper and its people reflect this exotic blend of flavours and tastes.

Over centuries different cultures have influenced Zanzibar to become what it is today. Sumerians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Indians, Chinese, Persians, Portuguese, Omani Arabs, Dutch and British have settled here at one time or another and influenced the local culture into its present fusion. Rich in cultural history and overflowing with natural beauty, Zanzibar offers the visitor a unique and unforgettable African travel experience.
