You have experienced life in a wild arena. You’ve safari-across the great plains of Tanzania and Kenya and seen top predators hunting vast herds of game. Now you’re ready for quietness, a sense of timelessness; life at a different pace.
The fragrance floats towards you on soft, tropical air. It’s drawing you into a labyrinthine maze of curious stone alleyways and tiny lanes. Follow your nose through the historic Stone Town of Zanzibar and you will arrive at a bustling marketplace with stalls overflowing with cascades of fresh fruit and vegetables – some familiar, but others completely alien – and the inevitable array of colourful spices; their heady aromas reaching out to all visitors.
This is Zanzibar, prized by the traders and seafarers of the Indian Ocean since the 19th century when many spices were worth their weight in gold, and merchants made fortunes from trading silks, ivory and slaves.
Talk to Tania, our leading consultant on Zanzibar and you’ll discover that the island offers more than the fabled Stone Town with its ancient architecture and distinctive culture. Our experts will tell you about taking romantic sailing trips in local dhows, at sunset. She’ll introduce you to the undersea world of Mnemba Island – a paradise for divers – and the endless, sandy beaches that are crayoned along the northern and eastern coasts of this enchanting island. Where you can snorkel, dive, kite surf, or simply beach yourself.
Zanzibar, for perfect relaxation after an action-packed safari.
