Zanzibar - Just say the name and you can almost smell the scent of spices blowing on the gentle trade winds. This exotic port off the coast of Tanzania offers travellers the hedonistic pleasures of white sand beaches and lapis waters, along with a fascinating fusion of culture and history.

Zanzibar has the infamous historical distinction of being the centre of the slave trade in East Africa. Stone town is one of the few intact historical Swahili coastal trading towns of East Africa and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000.  In town, enjoy viewing fascinating historical buildings; Out of town, you can visit sparkling beaches, spice plantations, even one of the island's unique animal sanctuaries.

For an unforgettable experience, dive with the dolphins. Kizimkazi village located on the Southern coast of Zanzibar Island offers the best location to encounter both bottle-nose and humpback dolphins. Join us for an exotic island vacation!
