Located just off the mainland of East Africa, the island of Zanzibar is a melting pot of African culture.

Boasting a strong sense of character, friendly locals and a distinct pace of life, the island has a number of alluring features, amongst which include the spectacular sea and white-sand beaches that surround it. A major attraction is Stone Town, with its whitewashed, coral-rag houses, quaint shops, bazaars, courtyards and town squares providing a great place to explore. Venture into the island’s interior, taste tropical fruits and fragrant spices or simply unwind at a luxury resort. Retreat to Zanzibar for a decadent island holiday or as part of a wider Africa itinerary, perhaps, for example, following an exciting mainland safari.
