Soak up the beaches and culture in Zanzibar

Does a trip to a tropical island in the Indian Ocean rate high on your list? Book flights to Zanzibar and discover this laidback island off the coast of Tanzania in East Africa. Explore the birthplace of Freddy Mercury, visit a colourful Arabic bazaar and travel back in time. Admire tropical coral reefs and exotic fish while snorkelling in crystal-clear water. Zanzibar lies near the equator so sunshine is practically guaranteed!

Experience the oriental atmosphere of Stone Town

Exotic Zanzibar captures the imagination with white sandy beaches, palm trees and its mysterious Arabian ambiance. Explore the maze of narrow streets in Stone Town and visit the fairytale palace of the sultan. Peruse the seductive handicrafts, clothes and oriental spices at the Daranjani market . A boat tour is also a must; board a dhow (a traditional boat) and see the traditional fishermen bring home the catch of the day. Zanzibar is the ideal destination for a relaxing beach holiday and the perfect starting point for a holiday in Tanzania. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Zanzibar now! 

The paradise beaches of Nungwi

Wiggle your toes in the sand as you sip a fresh fruit cocktail: the pristine beaches near the charming village of Nungwi are a true tropical paradise. Enjoy the friendly atmosphere and take a beach walk to the lighthouse. There are so many seascapes so keep your camera handy! At night, visit the harbour of Nungwi for a magnificent event: dozens of fishing boats with lowered white sails set course in the setting sun. A gorgeous picture.
