After your safari, relax on the island of Zanzibar during this 7 night getaway; spend 5 nights at the excellent Matemwe Lodge, which stands atop a small coral cliff with an isolated beach below, then enjoy a further 2 nights experiencing the fascinating culture of Stone Town.
This trip can either start and finish in Dar es Salaam or London Heathrow depending on which option you choose on the drop down menu below - it can therefore be used as a stand alone beach holiday or alternatively it can be added to one of our Tanzania safaris to create a great trip with two very separate parts: a bush safari and a beach break.
On arrival in Dar you will need to connect onto a light aircraft that will take you to Zanzibar. Your driver who will take you to Matemwe will meet you at the airport. During this 60-minute journey you drive along palm-tree lined roads and pass through many small villages, which can give you an insight into local Zanzibarian life before arriving at Matemwe Lodge. Relax at this quiet and isolated beach side location in the north east of Zanzibar for 5 nights. Swim in the turquoise sea or one of the two swimming pools and lounge in the hammocks at this stylish yet pleasantly informal place.
Your driver will collect you from Matemwe and take you to Stone Town where you can spend a few days absorbing the wonderful sights and smells of this traditional Swahili town. Explore the maze of back streets to discover beautiful Zanzibari doors and vibrant markets whilst based at the Zanzibar Palace Hotel. This beautiful boutique hotel is ideally located for meandering around Stone Town on foot. During your 2-night stay here you can easily reach the shops, markets and museums that help to make this place so magical.
Spend the last day looking around Stone Town or shopping for those last-minute souvenirs, before heading back to the airport and flying back to Dar es Salaam.
