Zanzibar Holidays

Often referred to as the “Spice Island”, Zanzibar lies off the coast of Tanzania. A tropical island of white beaches, with an exotic culture and a dark history, Zanzibar holidays are an unforgettable experience.


Things to Do in Zanzibar

  • Discover Zanzibar’s top beaches. Nungwi Beach, Kendwa Beach, and Matemwe Beach, each boast those postcard-worthy white sands and azure seas.
  • Take a spice tour of the Spice Island. Spice is one of Zanzibar’s most important industries and a tour of the plantations and markets is a must-do when visiting the island. 
  • Spend a day or two exploring Stone Town. Visit the Old Fort, the Sultan’s Palace, the Darajani Market, and have dinner at Mercury’s – a restaurant paying tribute to Stone Town native Freddy Mercury.
  • Learn about Zanzibar’s dark past at Prison Island and the Slave Market in Stone Town. Once a detention area for slaves, Prison Island is now a nature reserve for giant tortoises.


Best Time to Visit

Zanzibar weather tends to remain hot all year round with an average temperature of about 26°. 

The least favourable time to visit would be during the rainy seasons, which run from April to May and from November to December. The best time to visit Zanzibar is from June to October and December to March.

Visit in July for the Zanzibar International Film Festival featuring film screenings, exhibitions, craft classes, and plenty of beach parties.

Why We Love It

 “Zanzibar is an exotic paradise. The beaches are incredible and the history of the island is fascinating. A visit to the Slave Market is a must.”
