This exotic clove scented isle transports you entirely to another time and place. Relax at a Persian hammam, enjoy a pot of mint tea overlooking ornate domed mosques and gothic churches.
In the distance the deep azure oceans laps against the powder white palm fringed sands. Explore the labyrinthine mythical Stone town enjoying the last days of summer before the short rains of November arrive. We love the newly opened luxurious Zuri Zanzibar’s thatched villas complete with spice garden and excellent restaurants serving organic, homegrown ingredients. Head down to Darajani Market in Stone town to shop local products, take a look at the numerous unique shops around and end your day by dining at a rooftop restaurant.
For nature lovers, we recommend visiting prison island, where you’ll meet ancient giant tortoises, and snorkel or dive in Mnemba Atoll, where beautiful coloured fish and corals await (it’s also common to spot dolphins). Book a safari blue tour for your own private boat trip on turquoise waters, a local seafood feast and a memorable snorkeling experience.
