Begin your 7 day island holiday, relaxing on the pure white beaches of northern Zanzibar or indulging in the variety of water sports on offer at your hotel; then immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of lively Stone Town and its array of antique shops, museums and historic buildings.
This trip includes flights to and from Dar es Salaam, so 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.
From Dar es Salaam it is a short 20-minute domestic flight to Zanzibar Airport. Here you are met and driven for a further two hours directly to the pristine north coast beaches and turquoise waters of Nungwi and the beautiful Ras Nungwi. With 5 nights here you have ample time to enjoy the pool and beach, try a variety of water sports, and explore the nearby and charming Nungwi village.
In the morning your car will collect you from the Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel and drive you for about 2 hours to Stone Town. Pass through the small farming communities of Zanzibar where bicycles laden with goods for sale and women dressed in colourful traditional kangas line the roads, on your way to Jafferji House. Spend 2 nights here, losing yourself in the history of this old world Arab trading port, visiting the vivid back street markets or picking out a few of the fascinating museums.
Spend the last day looking around Stone Town or shopping for those last-minute souvenirs, before heading back to the airport to fly back to Dar es Salaam.
