Zanzibar Archipelago travel guides

Red colobus monkeys, Jozani Forest

With unspoiled white-sand beaches fringed by mangroves, and pristine reefs that teem with marine life, the Zanzibar Archipelago has earned its reputation as arguably the best place to unwind following a Tanzania safari. But, there’s more to this string of islands than sun-drenched shores. Our travel guides offer a glimpse into their spicy mélange of cultures, which blend African, Indian, Asian, and European influences, as well as the historic architecture of Stone Town. Our specialists also suggest the best places to snorkel and dive, sail a traditional dhow, stroll along deserted coves, and tour spice plantations.
