Get to Know Zanzibar

Here the scent of spices and the richness of history combine with white beaches, great diving and snorkelling. 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 Kilimanjaro climb, offering a combination of white-sand beaches and activities.

Zanzibar is the biggest and busiest of the three and rich in history. 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 to the 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.
