Zanzibar Holidays Butterworth
The name alone conjures visions of spice markets, and turquoise sea – and thankfully, the truth does not disappoint one. Zanzibar has long been at the center of the Indian Ocean experience in East Africa, lying just a small distance off the South African coast but at the center of Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, and a Zanzibar holiday is a sensory experience par excellence.
Spice tours, tasting local foods, and walking the streets of the capital’s old quarter Stone Town, now a World Heritage Site bustling with colorful markets along with local flavors, are all options. Then there are the beaches: ideal for those looking for a lazy luxury beach holiday, Zanzibar and its outlying Islands are home to some of East Africa’s finest beaches as well as a host of its best diving sites.
Zanzibar, one of the world’s most romantic honeymoon destinations, has accommodation ranging from luxurious beachfront cottages to exclusive boutique hotels and elegant spa resorts; parents, on the other hand, can appreciate Zanzibar’s family-friendly hotels and safe-swimming beaches. Zanzibar Holidays Butterworth is easily available from travel hub Wonderful Holiday Destinations and can be combined with top South African safari destinations such as the Kruger National Park. It can be included as part of a safari and beach tour or as a stand-alone holiday.
Reasons To Visit Zanzibar
A Turquoise Beach Vacation for the Discerning
Stretch out on a charming sisal daybed or be rocked to sleep in a hammock strung between two palm trees overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean during your beachfront vacation in Zanzibar. The warm tropical sun shines through the cracks in the leaves, while gentle breezes scented with the distinct aroma of the spices grown on the island mingle with the aroma of organic coconuts, mango, and other flora surround you.
There is an enticing freshness in the air, and when you drift off to sleep, only the sounds of the gentle waves twirling on the pristine white sands and the rustling of the trees produce a peaceful harmony. However, you can hear birds singing that adds to the melody. As you awaken, the Indian Ocean’s scintillating azure welcomes you, with the sun rays skimming on the waves, which are subdued by the reefs and coral formations beneath the sea.
There is a fun and tranquil magical atmosphere all around. Bathe in the tropical sun or go for a swim in the ocean, which is pleasantly tepid on the face. Emerge from the sea to a delectable spiced meal of succulent fish, meats, vegetables, and fruit. When the tide recedes, you can walk along the shore’s natural pools and see the small marine creatures trapped there, waiting for the next tide to come in. These are just a few of the fantastic encounters you will have on your African Mecca seaside holiday.
Zanzibar’s Exotic Spices
Because of the cultivation and manufacturing of aromatic spices such as black pepper, lemongrass, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric, and cloves, Zanzibar Island is known as the Spice Island. Visit our spice plantations for a lesson about the history and cultivation of these herbs, as well as their culinary and medicinal applications. Follow the aromas and taste the delectable combination of flavors in the market area and traditional dishes.
It is a romantic weekend away. Not only aromatic, it’s also romantic – it is the perfect spot to spice things up. It has the most stunning settings and lodges on the planet, how can it not be the ideal location for romance? It is ideal for long walks along the beach, relaxing beside the sea, and sipping cocktails while watching the sunset. Of course, Zanzibar is a popular wedding and honeymoon destination.
You Can Escape From The Masses And Be Unique
For those looking for something even less populated and established, the neighboring islands of Mnemba, Chumbe, Mafia, and Pemba are wonderful destinations with entire stretches of beach to themselves. This archipelago is made up of more than fifty smaller islands, there are many wonderful lodges to choose from. Hire a scooter (moped) and check out the narrow streets and stunning coastlines at your leisure, away from the hustle and bustle. The road is a little rough in some places, the traffic might be a bit scary, but this is the ideal way to enjoy the lovely weather and go on an adventure to the Islands’ minimally-known corners.
Is Zanzibar Safe? Relaxed Travel
Consult a physician
In comparison to the rest of South Africa, the risk of contracting Malaria on Zanzibar Island is much lower. However, it is also advisable to consult a doctor prior to your visit to obtain adequate vaccine and preventive drug advice.
Eat and drink responsibly!
At all times, avoid drinking tap water! The majority of Zanzibar’s drinking water is imported from the mainland, and tap water is unsafe to drink. Be cautious of fruit and foods sold on the streets ; if you have a sensitive stomach, avoid them at all cost!
