Island life rooted in Swahili tradition

Often coined ‘Spice Island’, this sun-soaked archipelago off the East Coast of Africa packs a serious tropical punch. Palm-lined white sands lapped by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean provide the perfect setting for relaxation, but don’t mistake this for just another sunbather’s haven. Beyond the beaches and luxury resorts Zanzibar offers time-honoured fishing villages, a charming national park teeming with native red colobus monkeys, and a UNESCO-listed old town where Swahili history and culture can be seen around every corner.
