Holidays to Zanzibar

Enjoy plenty of sunshine, sea and sand on a Zanzibar holiday, a great choice for a post-safari escape or a romantic beach break

Situated off the east coast of Africa, the Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar is tropical paradise personified. Beautiful white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees and a brilliant turquoise ocean offer a picture-perfect backdrop for a luxury beach holiday. But beaches aren’t all there is to enjoy on a Zanzibar holiday. Take the time to explore the rural villages along the coast, the cobbled streets and spice markets of Stone Town or let your hair down at a full moon party. Spot colobus monkeys, go dolphin watching and snorkel through the colourful coral reefs to spot a variety of shimmering fish. With everything from romantic beach hotels to luxurious resorts, Zanzibar offers the quintessential Indian Ocean escape.
