Trips and Tours to Zanzibar

Combine the idyllic island of Zanzibar with a safari adventure in East Africa with our range of overland camping safaris, tailor-made holidays and beach breaks.

With pristine white sand beaches and the azure Indian Ocean, Zanzibar is a little slice of paradise, and has many stunning beach resorts including Kiwengwa on the east coast and Nungwi in the north. It also offers some of the best diving in the world, with lush coral reefs and a diverse range of sea life including dolphins, turtles, whale shark and manta-rays. Most of our trips to Zanzibar are part of longer overland safaris in East Africa, where we stop for a few days of R&R on this idyllic island. We also offer a 5-day beach break in Zanzibar and holidays combining the best of Tanzania's national park with a few days at the end in Zanzibar. Check out our tours departing in 2020 and 2021.

This trip was a million times more incredible than I ever imagined. We traveled with and the crew on our trip were just amazing and thanks to our wonderful chef. They put together a seamless, stress-free journey with great food and many laughs. The truck was incredibly well equipped, the tents were lovely and spacious, and the bed rolls were surprisingly comfortable. We didn't feel the need to upgrade our accommodation at any of the campsites.

This trip covered all the highlights with multiple game drives and plenty of opportunity to view the African wildlife. Camping in the National Parks was an absolute highlight. We also had opportunities to visit local villages in Tanzania and Malawi. Zanzibar was just wonderful and felt like a holiday inside a holiday. What a stunning destination with white sand beaches, warm Indian ocean and a tonne of history. There are some long driving days, but that was absolutely required to cover the distance that we did. They provided a welcome opportunity to rest and admire the stunning landscapes. My only complaint is that I couldn't have stayed on this trip for longer!”

Literally the most amazing experience of my life, joined 2 tours across the the experience and both were unreal. The crew on the trucks are absolutely fantastic, really knowledgeable guide, wonderful cook and a safe and accurate driver. More importantly they encouraged the group to create such a family unit that my friend and I both cried all the way to the airport because we had to leave them. The experience itself was an amazing mix of beaches, wildlife and falls and the itinerary provided was absolutely correct. Would recommend this trip to anyone and I certainly will be using on the go in the future”

Our guide was superb, he was honest, considerate and full of excellent advice on travelling through the areas we were going. In the same way our cook, Peter was fantastic - every meal was exceptionally good and the team was completed by a fantastic driver Peterson, who made sure that we were always comfortable on the bus, despite the pot holes. We visited some fantastic places and the included game drives and activities were excellent - the local guides used were always top quality.

The long days driving through Tanzania were challenging, although we were expecting this but leaving one place in the dark and arriving in the dark at the next, travelling all day on two consecutive days was tedious. ”

The spice island
Stone Town and the Spice Plantations

Zanzibar has a fascinating history as it was the centre of the slave and spice trades in the 1800s and UNESCO-listed Stone Town, with its labyrinth of narrow streets, ancient buildings and bustling bazaars, is at its cultural heart. Known as The Spice Island, no visit to Zanzibar would be complete without a visit to the spice plantations, a true delight for your senses.
