Zanzibar Island (Unguja) is part of an archipelago that contains Pemba to the North, along with many other smaller islands and islets. Set in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa, the ‘Spice Island’ as it is known due to its historical importance as a culture and trade centre, is marked by the magic of its capital Stone Town, with its labyrinth of alleys that carve through its whitewash coral stone buildings and hotels. This traditional and mysterious town is counterpointed by Zanzibar’s immaculate beaches where turquoise waters meet coral reefs – an excellent place to dive and snorkel.
The extraordinary diversity of wildlife and landscape – alongside the islands unspoilt heritage makes Zanzibar such a popular destination for luxury holidays and honeymoons alike.
I have just returned from an amazing holiday to Tanzania and Zanzibar feeling relaxed and happy!….stayed in the stunning Baraza Resort….the rooms are amazing and the Spa offers THE best massages. All in all, a great end to a wonderful holiday– Stef
