Zanzibar is a small archipelago off the coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean and consists of two main islands, Unguja (Zanzibar Island), Pemba and Mafia Islands. It is home to a rich and diverse culture influenced over time by its many settlers including the Sumerians, Egyptians, Indians, Chinese, Persians, Portugese, Dutch and British.

Known as the ‘Spice Island’, Zanzibar was once the world’s leading clove producer, and still maintains a strong export market in spices. Today tourism is a growing sector as more people visit the fantastic scenery and fusion of cultures available on these islands. It also offers some of the best diving experiences in East Africa and the historic Stone Town old city which has remained virtually untouched for the last 200 years.

There is something on offer to suit every visitor, and is the perfect end to your African experience. Gamewatchers Safaris can arrange stays at a number of selected hotels in Zanzibar and the less travelled Mafia Island in conjunction with a Safari.
