Zanzibar is a well-known safari and beach resort in Africa. Flying to the Seychelles, Maldives, or Mauritius is extremely simple due to the short and inexpensive flights. Zanzibar Holidays Elands Bay has everything a luxury beach vacationer could want for a fraction of the cost.
While backpackers flock to Zanzibar Holidays Elands Bay for the low-cost hostels, luxury travellers can still enjoy their own private oasis at the best self-contained boutique hotels. Every visitor is catered for in true Zanzibar fashion, with a wide range of hotel sizes, prices, and styles.
Zanzibar, on the East Coast, has a variety of hotel options as well as beautiful beaches. It is stunning in every way, from the pristine beaches and boutique hotels to the friendly locals and the town’s hustle and bustle. Most visitors prefer to relax in their hotels or swim in the Indian Ocean, but this is more than just a beach. Zanzibar attracts visitors year after year because of its vibrant culture, history, and indescribable atmosphere.
Though Zanzibar Holidays Elands Bay is the main attraction, other islands in the archipelago are also worth visiting if you have the time.
Pemba provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in a natural setting. The Indian Ocean provides a plethora of activities, and the diving is spectacular; however, the beaches on Zanzibar’s North and East coasts are less appealing. However, it is ideal for a genuine off-the-beaten-path experience.
Zanzibar is also known for its beautiful drives. It is best known for being the home of the whale shark, the world’s largest fish. Zanzibar is a popular destination for underwater explorers due to the possibility of snorkeling with these incredible whales. Because the beaches are not as spectacular as those in Pemba, this is a destination for those seeking adventure over sun, sand, and relaxation.
The most luxurious beach experience in the Indian Ocean can be found on Mnemba Private, which is located just off the coast of Zanzibar. Because the island has only one lodge, visitors have exclusive access to the best of the archipelago’s bright white beaches. It is an elegant beach lodge for those who appreciate luxury at its most personalized and authentic level, rather than a luxurious five-star hotel experience.
The History Of Zanzibar And The Traditional Shows Are Two Of The Best Reasons To Visit
Dhows sail in Zanzibar
Zanzibar has a tumultuous history. It was once East Africa’s largest slave market and a popular rest stop for voyaging traders. It was dubbed “The Spice” because of its aromatic spice offerings, and it was also a major player in the ivory trade. Zanzibar has been influenced by a diverse group of people, including the British, Arabs, Portuguese, Indians, Persians, and Africans, who have all left their mark. Experience the thrill of a traditional wooden dhow ride, a trade relic that is still used for transportation and fishing today.
Residents of the Zanzibar festival are well-known for their friendliness and are usually eager to help visitors. There is a vibe outside of the hustle and bustle, a slower pace of life, and travel is reasonably safe.
Sauti za Busara (an annual African music festival held in February), Jahazi (a jazz and literary festival held in September), and Mwaka Kogwa are among Zanzibar’s major festivals (a four-day festival held in July to mark Nairuzim – the Shirazi New Year). Participants come from all over Africa, representing a diverse range of races, ages, and backgrounds. The Zanzibar International Film Festival is the most important cultural event in June and July. The festival attracts a diverse audience by showcasing films, music, and performances from various races, ethnic groups, and religions.
Budget-friendly and easily accessible.
From one-of-a-kind five-star experiences to family-friendly prices, Zanzibar has something for everybody. Zanzibar has something for everyone’s taste and budget, whether it is ultimate luxury or a relaxed beach shack. It is simple and convenient to travel around Zanzibar on your own, allowing you to explore at your own pace. You can also look for high-quality and low-cost Zanzibar vacation packages on the internet.
Recommendations For Visiting Zanzibar
Yellow Fever: Visitors must have a valid yellow fever certificate obtained at least ten days prior to travel to enter Zanzibar.
Malaria: Because Zanzibar is located in the malarial belt, visitors should take all necessary precautions to avoid contracting the disease.
The month of April is the worst to visit because it has the most rain and, surprisingly, the most rainy days.
Tourists, especially women, are advised to conduct themselves and dress in a manner that respects local sensibilities and customs. Please obtain permission from Zanzibar residents before photographing them.
