Safari Enquiry

In Zanzibar, the scent of spices and the richness of history and culture combine with white sandy beaches, excellent diving, and spectacular snorkeling. 

The three main islands off the mainland of East Africa (Zanzibar, Pemba, and Mafia Islands) are full of energy, each with its own appeal.

They’re perfect for relaxing after a safari in Tanzania or a Kilimanjaro climb, offering a combination of tranquil and adventurous activities.

Zanzibar is the biggest and busiest of the three holiday destinations and is stacked with a colorful lifestyle. Pemba Island, just to the north, is less of a mainstream tourist attraction where diving is the main drawcard.

The quiet island of Mafia lies south of Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam, just across from the famous Selous Game Reserve’s Rufiji River mouth. A well-protected marine reserve, it’s a peaceful honeymoon, diving, and fishing destination.
