Enjoying the beaches and culture on Zanzibar

If a trip to a paradise island in the Indian Ocean ranks high on your wish list, book a flight to Zanzibar and discover this laid-back island off the coast of Tanzania. Explore Freddy Mercury’s home ground, visit a colourful Arabian bazaar and be awed by coral reefs and exotic fish during a snorkelling trip. Lying close to the equator, Zanzibar and sunny days go hand in hand!

Discover African treasures in Stone Town

With its pearly-white sand beaches, palm trees and mysterious Arabian flair, exotic Zanzibar captures the imagination. Explore the maze of streets in Stone Town and pay a visit to the fairytale-like Sultan’s Palace. Shop for handmade articles, clothing and oriental spices in Darajani Market. And don’t miss out on a boat trip. Get on a ‘dhow’ (a traditional boat) and watch how fishermen haul in the catch. Looking for next-level dining? Have dinner at The Rock, situated on a rock in the middle of the sea. Zanzibar is the ideal destination for a relaxed beach holiday after a tour of Tanzania. Treat yourself: book a flight to Zanzibar now!

The heavenly beaches of Nungwi

On the immaculate beaches near the charming village of Nungwi, you’ll get a taste of paradise with a fresh fruit cocktail in your hand and your toes in the sand. Enjoy the leisurely atmosphere and amble down the beach to the lighthouse. In the evenings, Nungwi harbour is the stage for a beautiful spectacle. Dozens of fishing boats with lowered white sails head towards the setting sun. What a magnificent sight!
