Zanzibar Island

Zanzibar- the name includes the main island, Unguja, and it is sister island, Pemba. It has for centuries attracted seafarers and adventures from around the world. Now it welcomes a new generation of explorers - those who have to marvel at the rich heritage, reflected in the architecture and the culture of the people.

Spend a few days here before or after a safari on the mainland and immerse yourself in the magic that is Zanzibar. Relax on the dazzling white, palm-fringed beaches, where the blue waters of the Indian Ocean beckon swimmers, divers and fishermen.

This is where you are shown the unique flora and fauna of Zanzibar's tropical islands and often you can see big groups of dolphins.
