Zanzibar Tours & Holidays

With endless golden beaches, crystalline blue waters and tantalising spice plantations – Zanzibar is a feast for the senses.

The island of Zanzibar may be small, but there are many ways to get lost here: amongst the ancient, cobble-stoned streets of Stone Town; in the colourful history of the people that call this paradise home; or amid the coral reefs that rival the best snorkelling destinations in the world. Take your pick, but after a day in this hidden paradise, we can promise you won’t want to be found!

Road to Zanzibar

Amy · Traveled January 2024
Great trip! Excellent value for money seeing the "real Africa" highly recommended to get the most out of Tanzania and Zanzibar!

Road to Zanzibar

Karl · Traveled January 2024
We thoroughly enjoyed this Road to Zanzibar trip. The experiences we had in the Serengeti, Usambara Mountains and Zanzibar beaches were outstanding. The Intrepid team took excellent care of us, making sure we were safe and extremely well fed. We highly recommend the accommodation upgrades where they are possible.

Vic Falls to Kenya

Jacob · Traveled December 2023
Long drives every few days which get exhausting. Some great inclusions on the itinerary, some not so much. The Malawi village walk is a sham; the local guide helped locals pressure the Intrepid group into buying tacky souvenirs for absurd prices. The Rhino trek in Bulawayo is worth the money, although it should have included more Rhino spotting and trekking. I would recommend other trips in Africa over this one.

If you're thinking of doing this trip just do it you'll never regret it and it's the most amazing experience.

Vic Falls to Zanzibar

Shirley · Traveled December 2023
Don't think twice - book it ! I was jealous of those doing longer trips that connected up to this one. From having never camped before I am a complete convert - mainly because we were so incredibly well looked after by our crew. This is definitely a "journey" rather than a typical "holiday" - fantastic to visit less visited national parks - our sittings felt very special and unique.
