General Information

Zanzibar is an island and separate state, located off the coast of Tanzania.  Zanzibar encompasses two large islands : Unguija and Pemba.  Both are flat and low lying surrounded by rocky inlets, sandy beaches, lagoons and mangrove swamps.  There are beautiful coral reefs beyond the shoreline.  

Zanzibar is one those magical destinations that is steeped in history with a tropical climate and plenty of magnificent beaches - it really does live up to every expectation.  Whether you are there for the cultural experience, spectacular diving or just to relax on one of the palm-lined beaches after a dusty safari, Zanzibar can fulfil all those wishes.

Cloves and other spices, along with coconut products are a major export in this region.  There are so many areas in Zanzibar that one can visit from the Old Stone Town with its traditional Swahili vibe and fascinating buildings; to the sea and coral reefs; to the clove and coconut plantations; and then the giant sea turtles of Nungwi.  There is something for everyone.

Zanzibar has a tropical coastal climate which remains warm all year round and is often very humid.
