Tanzania & Zanzibar

There is no better place to enjoy an enriching wildlife experience than Tanzania. Game viewing opportunities are regarded as the best in Africa.

Tanzania also boasts beautiful beaches and islands – Zanzibar, Mnemba Island and Pangani. The area is ideal for underwater adventures and among the best diving destinations along the Eastern African Coast.

The island of Zanzibar is part of a Tanzanian archipelago off the coast of East Africa. On its main island is Stone Town, a historic trade center with Swahili and Islamic influences. Its winding lanes present minarets, carved doorways and 19th-century landmarks such as the House of Wonders, a former sultan’s palace. The northern villages Nungwi and Kendwa have wide, sandy beaches lined with hotels.

Surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, it a blissful haven. From exotic Stone Town to its white palm fringed beaches, it offers the traveller a luxurious beach stay between safaris.
