Zanzibar is an intoxicating tropical island in the Indian Ocean, just 25 km off the coast of mainland Tanzania. It is famed for its atmospheric capital of Stone Town, one of the best preserved historical cities on the East African coast, as well as stunning white-sand beaches backed by palm trees and lapped by warm clear seas. Zanzibar has pleasing weather all year round due to its position near the equator, and a holiday here is probably just about any couple’s dream honeymoon destination or what every family needs for a dose of Vitamin Sea! Whether you’re ending a Tanzania wildlife safari in the national parks, preparing to head to one, or simply want to relax in this gorgeous paradise, Zanzibar is the perfect island escape and will not let you down. On this 4-day holiday, there is plenty of time for lazing on the white sands of Kendwa Beach in the north of the island and trying the several water sports on offer. We also include the interesting sightseeing excursions of a walking tour of historical Stone Town, and a visit to the spice plantations to discover how the island’s aromatic spices originally drew the Sultans of Oman to Zanzibar.

We visit the House of Wonders, the Palace Museum, the Arab Fort, and a mosque, among many other attractions, and you will meet the exceptionally friendly Swahili people as you explore the narrow alleyways and lively squares. After lunch, we will proceed on a tour of the countryside and visit the spice plantations. The Spice Tour is one of the most popular tours in Zanzibar, which historically was one of the world’s leading producers of spices such as clove, nutmeg and cinnamon and is how it earned the nickname of the ‘Spice Island’. You visit an organic farm to touch, smell and taste the spices, and also sample Zanzibar’s exotic fruits, and learn their traditional uses in medicine, cosmetics and cooking.

You could also perhaps join in an informal beach volleyball match, take a boat ride on a traditional white-sailed dhow with a local fisherman or take a peaceful stroll along the sand to watch the sunset.
