Zanzibar Archipelago tours

A visit to the spice islands of Zanzibar works particularly well as a relaxing end to a safari in Tanzania or Kenya and our tour ideas are the product of extensive travel in the region. Once here, you can immerse yourself in colorful local history and culture or explore underwater and discover some of the world’s richest marine life.

We can recommend a number of excellent dive sites along with passionate and knowledgeable local guides, and we work with hotels whose owners we know personally. If you’re looking for a really remote escape, we’ve also discovered a number of small lodges on the Mafia Islands.
