Zanzibar is a well-known African safari and beach resort. Because of the short and inexpensive flights, flying to the Seychelles, Maldives, or Mauritius is extremely simple. Zanzibar Holidays Bellville offers everything a luxury beach vacationer could desire at a fraction of the price.
While backpackers flock to Zanzibar for its cheap hostels, luxury travellers can still enjoy their own private oasis at the best self-contained boutique hotels. In true Zanzibar fashion, every visitor is catered for, with a wide range of hotel sizes, prices, and styles.
On the East Coast, Zanzibar has a variety of hotel options as well as beautiful beaches. It is beautiful in every way, from the pristine beaches and boutique hotels to the friendly locals and the hustle and bustle of the town. The majority of visitors prefer to relax in their hotels or swim in the Indian Ocean, but this is more than just a beach. Zanzibar draws visitors on a yearly basis due to its vibrant culture, history, and indescribable atmosphere.
Though Zanzibar is the main attraction, if you have the time, other islands in the archipelago are also worth visiting.
Pemba offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to live in a natural setting. The Indian Ocean offers endless activities, and the diving is spectacular; however, the beaches in Zanzibar’s North and East coasts are less appealing. It is, however, ideal for a genuine, off-the-beaten-path experience.
Zanzibar is also well-known for its scenic drives. It is best known for being the home of the world’s largest fish, the whale shark. Because of the possibility of snorkeling with these incredible whales, Zanzibar is a popular destination for underwater explorers. Because the beaches are not spectacular, like those in Pemba, this is a destination for those looking for adventure rather than sun, sand, and relaxation.
The most luxurious beach experience in the Indian Ocean can be found on the luxurious and exclusive Mnemba Private, which is located just off the coast of Zanzibar. Visitors have exclusive access to the best of the archipelago’s bright white beaches because the island has only one lodge. Rather than a luxurious five-star hotel experience, it is an elegant beach lodge for those who appreciate luxury at its most personalized and authentic level.
Zanzibar’s History And Traditional Shows Are Two Of The Best Reasons To Visit

Zanzibar has had a turbulent history. It was once the largest slave market in East Africa and a popular rest stop for voyaging traders. Because of its aromatic spice offerings, it was dubbed “The Spice,” and it was also a major player in the ivory trade. Zanzibar has been influenced by a wide range of people, including the British, Arabs, Portuguese, Indians, Persians, and Africans, all of whom have left their imprint. Experience a traditional wooden dhow ride, a trade relic that is still used for transportation and fishing today.
Residents of the Zanzibar festival are known for their friendliness and are usually willing to assist visitors. Outside of the hustle and bustle, there is a vibe, a slower pace of life, and travel is reasonably safe.
Zanzibar’s major festivals include Sauti za Busara (an annual African music festival held in February), Jahazi (a jazz and literary festival held in September), and Mwaka Kogwa (a four-day festival held in July to mark Nairuzim – the Shirazi New Year). These events draw participants from all over Africa, representing a wide range of races, ages, and backgrounds. The most important cultural event in June and July is the Zanzibar International Film Festival. The festival features films, music, and performances from various races, ethnic groups, and religions, and it draws a diverse audience.
Budget-friendly and easy to locate.
Zanzibar has something for everyone, from one-of-a-kind five-star experiences to family-friendly prices. Whether it is ultimate luxury or a relaxed beach shack, Zanzibar has something for everybody’s taste and budget. Traveling around Zanzibar on your own is simple and convenient, allowing you to explore at your own pace. You can also search the internet for high-quality and low-cost Zanzibar vacation packages.
Suggestions For Visiting Zanzibar
Yellow Fever: To enter Zanzibar, visitors must have a valid yellow fever certificate obtained at least ten days prior to travel.
Malaria: Because Zanzibar is in the malarial belt, visitors should take all precautions to avoid contracting the disease.
April is the worst month to visit because it has the most rain and, surprisingly, the most rainy days.
Tourists, particularly women, are advised to behave and dress in a way that respects local sensibilities and customs. Before photographing Zanzibar residents, please obtain their permission.
