Zanzibar is an iconic evergreen island, situated 36kms away from the Tanzanian coast in the Indian Ocean near Dar es Salaam. It is known for its immaculate tropical beaches, spectacular architecture, meandering lanes, luscious tropical fruits, aromatic spices and charming friendly people. The breathtaking beauty of its coastline and the magnificence of the historical Stone Town make Zanzibar one of the world’s attractive and well known destinations.
Zanzibar experiences ideal holiday weather for most of the year. The heat of summer is seasonally often cooled by windy conditions, resulting in pleasant sea breezes, particularly on the North and East coasts. Longer rains normally occur in April and May although it typically doesn’t rain every day during that time.
Walking along Stone town’s cobbled street, past intricately-carved wooden doors and ornate balconies, visitors will be escorted to an era long passed while viewing numerous cultural and historical sites.
Not too far from Stone Town, Nungwi, on the northern tip of Zanzibar, is said to have one of the best beaches of the island. This area has many fantastic lodges right on the beach and is well known for its tranquil vibe.
Pristine white beaches, spectacular coastal scenery, interesting sea creatures, plus a rich culture and tradition are just a few of the attractions drawing tourists to Zanzibar’s East Coast.
