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

Great trip/tour would definitely recommend anyone wanting a wildlife/safari type trip. Saw so many wild animals up close and in their natural habitat, just amazing to see. Camping amongst them was special, glad I didn't miss this experience.

Cape Town to Zanzibar

Caroline · Traveled February 2024
42 days across Africa became an endurance due to the elderly vehicle that at 2014 is way past it's best. That alone spoilt the trip. Too many hours on the road with early starts and late finishes made many days as wasted day for culuture or seeing and meeting locals.

This has been a trip of a lifetime - from the crew, to the destinations, to the friends I have made along the way I couldn't recommend this trip any more!

Road to Zanzibar

This was a very enjoyable trip with a very eclectic mix of nationalities and ages. Age range 25 to 85. Our guide Labo was fantastic, as was our chef Dawid and driver Sam and Trainee Ray. They were all very helpful with putting up and taking down the tents, quite often in the dark. The journeys were long and the mornings early but obviously necessary. We saw the big 5 and so much more. The rest came at the end in Zanzibar which was wonderful. We loved it so much, staying an extra 4 days.

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