Zanzibar’s rich cultural heritage is much in evidence; Stone Town remains largely unchanged and is characterised by a labyrinth of narrow streets, bazaars and the grand residences of Omani Arab traders.

A flat, palm-clad coral atoll, the island has shallow coral reefs and sloping banks with over 350 species of Indo-Pacific marine fauna.

Whale sharks migrate through Zanzibar’s waters from Aug-Sep and Feb-Mar, whilst August also sees the migration of humpback, and sperm whales.

The island is a 20-minute flight from Dar es Salaam, and a number of international carriers fly directly to the island.
