Zanzibar… the majestic tropical spice island of the Indian Ocean.
Over centuries different cultures have influenced Zanzibar to become what it is today and is the birthplace of Swahili; a lingua franca forged from global dialects, upon which legends were carried, trade routes opened and a Sultan’s empire prospered.
It is here that the Africa Culture blended with other cultures mainly Persian, Arabic and Indian to forms Swahili Culture. Today the romance, the splendour and legends of the past are still vibrantly alive, traditional sailing dhows, carved wooden and doors, chests, the scent of the clove and the smile of the hospitable people welcomes you to Zanzibar.
The paradisiacal shores of Zanzibar are exotic as its name. Rugged coral and limestone scarps form a sheltered backdrop to tranquil, caster sugar beaches that slope gently down into crystal – clear waters, abundant with marine life. Tall coconut palms and stalking Pandanus cast their wondering shadows over the white sands and swaying hammocks, while Green Wood Hoopoes and Weaver birds flit and flutter between the green leaves and pendulous fruit high above.
Zanzibar is a stunning destination on its own, or as part of an exciting and relaxing safari bush & beach break!
