Saffron Beach Holiday

Saffron Beach Holiday: In full

Spend your holiday on the tropical Mnemba Island, enjoying one of the most private locations in Africa whilst staying at the exclusive and first-rate Mnemba Island Lodge; then take a further 2 nights in the luxurious Park Hyatt, arguably the best hotel in Stone Town whilst you immerse yourself in the surrounding Swahili culture.

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.


Days 1-5

5 nights at Mnemba Island Lodge (full board & activities) | East Coast Zanzibar, Zanzibar

Mnemba is a tiny private island…In Dar es Salaam you will need to catch a domestic flight to Zanzibar Airport. You will be met by your driver at the airport and driven about an hour to connect with the boat that takes you across a short stretch of water to Mnemba Island. After 15 minutes you then arrive at Mnemba Island Lodge. Amble around the uninhabited island's perimeter of soft white coral sand, or for the more active take part in a variety of water sports such as kayaking, windsurfing and diving.

Days 6-7

2 nights at Park Hyatt (bed & breakfast) | Stone Town, Zanzibar

The Park Hyatt Zanzibar occupies a dominant location on the Stone Town seafront.In the morning, transfer to Stone Town via boat and then car, whilst soaking up the unique sights and smells of the 'Spice Island' on the way. On arrival you drive through the heart of the town, to what is generally regarded as the best hotel in Stone Town, the Park Hyatt. When you are not exploring the labyrinth of alleys and shops in Stone Town, relax in this excellent hotel, which has first-rate facilities and a wonderful view over the Indian Ocean.

Day 8

Have a relaxing last day before returning to the airport for your flight back to Dar Es Salaam.
