Zanzibar offers the ultimate beach and leisure experience. For those who love the sun, sand, and surf – Zanzibar is a perfect escape. It is an exotic and mysterious destination; Zanzibar still resonates with travelers today, beckoning lovers of history and those who are drawn to its remote beauty.

Of all the attractions in Zanzibar, the World Heritage site of Stone Town is the most evocative. Its streets and winding alleyways can draw visitors into hours of exploration, while its palaces and museums hold keys to Zanzibar's past as a center of trade and culture. One of the top sites to visit is the Palace of Wonders, a sultan's home converted into a museum celebrating Zanzibar's culture and language.

Visitors will also enjoy the must see Old Fort next to the Palace of Wonders, a four hundred-year-old structure that now hosts daily exhibitions of dance in addition to housing a range of artisan shops and venues show the skill of Zanzibar's craftspeople to best advantage. The map of Zanzibar is also dotted with tours, preserves, and activities that focus on the ecological wonders of the island. Visitors can spend time with elephants, tour a butterfly preserve, or wander on guided trails through some of Zanzibar's lush jungle.

Zanzibar Beach Resort

Quite a few Zanzibar activities center around the beach, where those who love water sports will enjoy the excellent scuba diving in offshore reefs. Dolphin lovers will delight in excursions that follow these playful creatures as they frolic in the sea. There are also Zanzibar tours in traditional dhow boats that show off the island.

Zanzibar is never short of festivals and celebrations. It is one of the countries with highest number of celebrations/festivals in East Africa. Zanzibar International Film Festival (ZIFF), Mwaka Kogwa, “Sauti ya Busara”, Cultural Festivals, Mangapwani Festival and Makunduchi Food Festival are among the events that showcase the best of Zanzibar culture.

Zanzibar food tells much about the history of Zanzibar, reflecting a number of different influences from many different places around the world. In Zanzibar you will enjoy the diversity of our cuisine whereby spices, fruits, and sea foods are 100% fresh.
