Zanzibar and Coastal Tanzania Holidays

The south coast of Tanzania is a wild and beautiful region with miles of unspoilt beaches, spectacular coastal forest, river estuaries and ancient Arabic settlements. The islands of Zanzibar lie in the Indian Ocean. Stone Town, the capital, has a distinct Arabic feel, having risen to prominence as the ancient spice and slave capital of the East African coast.

Zanzibar and the coast

The Zanzibar archipelago is just 20 minutes flight from the coast of Tanzania. To the north and south of Unguja, the main island of Zanzibar, are Pemba Island and Mafia Island. Both offer excellent diving and are great destinations for those wanting to get away from it all.

Stone Town itself is a fascinating old town is a maze of narrow streets, old leaning houses and colourful spice markets.
