Zanzibar

Zanzibar
Looking for flawless palm-fringed beaches, coral reefs indented with creeks and mangroves, and warm aquamarine waters beaded with tropical islands? Kenya’s South Coast and the lush Zanzibar Island offer the perfect way to round off an East Africa big-game safari.

The turquoise Indian Ocean is so clear that even without diving into its warm embrace you can glimpse flashes of bright reef fish and jewel-toned anemones – and these are just a tiny portion of the rich marine life living on the coral reef. It’s no wonder therefore that this coastline is a mecca for snorkellers and divers from around the world. Added to the mix is a heady combination of African, Arabian, Persian and Indian cultural influences, the heritage of centuries of traders blown in on the trade winds.
