Zanzibar is a stunning cluster of islands just off the coast of Tanzania and a popular honeymoon destination
Zanzibar is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, just off of the coast of the mainland Tanzania. It consists of many small islands and two large ones, namely Unguja and Pemba. Unguja – the main island, informally referred to as Zanzibar – is the largest and most popular island of the archipelago, while Pemba is more remote and less visited by tourists.
With tropical fruit growing wild, spice markets and bazaars on every cobbled alleyway, palm-fringed white-sand coastlines and ancient dhow sailing boats gliding on clear waters, the island truly is an explorer’s paradise. Whether you want to immerse yourself in local island culture or resign yourself to complete relaxation on a stunning beach, or both, Zanzibar has it all.
The great thing about Zanzibar is that each of the towns offers something unique and special; something that sets it apart from the others. Stone Town is, of course, at the top of our list. It’s the most vibrant and bustling town on the island and offers plenty of tourist attractions, with an array of restaurants and bars, a busy stretch of beach, many stalls and bazaars selling traditional goods, and a variety of tours and excursions.
Grab a snorkel and mask and enjoy exploring the ocean at your leisure. For dolphin watching, there is no better place to be than Kizimkazi. Renowned for its extensive dolphin sightings, the town is the only place to embark on a Safari Blue where you get to swim with dolphins!
Learn about how the various spices are grown and made – from cinnamon and nutmeg to saffron and cloves – whilst visiting a local Spice Farm. Enjoy a delicious, traditional meal after your tour and get the opportunity to purchase the locally-grown spices, teas and coffees.
Explore the beautiful Jozani Forest, where an array of wildlife calls the lush, green landscape their home. Spot colobus monkeys, forest crabs and the rare elephant shrew before taking a tour of the nearby mangroves.
