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.

What an awesome holiday, the crew (Godfrey, Duncan & Alouis) were 5 star, incredibly professional, caring and very entertaining. There was no doubt the group were in very capable hands throughout. I think they deserve a raise. Highly recommend this crew & tour company. Best wishes guys. Walburg Ireland”
We had a great time but there were a lot of long travel days. From dar es Saleem to Malawi was two very long days on the truck the first being 15 hours which included two stops by seemingly corrupt police pulling over the tourist trucks in Tanzania. The food was really great by our cook Joseph and our driver Stephen was lovely and did a great job. 6 years ago we did a tour with you also in Africa and the local payment covered the tips for our included activities. This time we were asked to give tips however we much preferred the way it was organised by our guide last time. There was a lot more upgrade options this time which was nice to get some much needed rest when needed. It would be great to get curtains on the truck as it gets very very hot in the window seats with the sun coming in. Overall we had a great trip and look forward to exploring other countries with you. Thank you to Nicola for promptly handling any requests or questions during the booking process.”
I was one of 6 people that travelled 57 days on the Great African Expedition from Nairobi, Kenya to Capetown, South Africa.
What an absolutely fantastic trip, from day 1 to the end. We saw the "big 5" multiple times and met some lovely people along the way.
I've got nothing but high praise for our Group Leader, Hes, similarly, Malinga, our cook, was a terrific guy that kept us well fed in sometimes difficult circumstances. Finally, Steve, our driver, was exceptional and kept us safe all the way.
Overall, I had a Fantastic time.
I was the oldest guy on the the truck and had an unbelievably incredible time.”

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.
