ZANZIBAR BEACH HOLIDAY
5-Day Beach Extension to Tanzania’s Exotic Spice Island
Located off the coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean, the spice island of Zanzibar is the perfect place to relax after a safari or climbing Kilimanjaro. Once the commercial center of East Africa, today Zanzibar retains many of its retail roots in the busy markets and winding alleyways of Stone Town. It boasts rich historical sites including noble Arabic houses, a slave market and former residences of explorers. The coastline is a beach lover’s dream come true, with miles of white sandy, palm fringed beaches and coves. With nearly unlimited choices for water activities, our Zanzibar Beach Holiday is the perfect island getaway.
Idyllically situated on the sea-front of ancient Stone Town, and flanked by an exotic mix of sultan\\\’s palaces, Portuguese forts, ancient dhow harbors, and bright bazaars, the Zanzibar Serena Inn is a haven of tranquility and opulence amongst the bustle of one of Africa\\\’s most ancient and enchanting towns. Each room has a king-sized four-poster bed and its own spacious balcony with hammock and sea view.
