ProSun, beach, sea life, value for money

ConsMosquitos, heat, sea urchins

Where to start is very difficult as the island stole my heart! We decided to take a trip to Zanzibar after reading much about the island and deciding it would definetly be a good singles vacation. We booked a great package deal 7 nights in Paje by night (which is east of the island)and one night...

“Island of Spices”

published 23/07/2004

Probeeches, history

Consnot much nightlife

The paradise island in the Indian Ocean . The main why I went to visit Zanzibar was for the beaches. Zanzibar has amazing white sandy beaches surrounded by the clear blue sea. It's the perfect place to simply, relax, get yourself a golden tan and admire the stuning views. It's very picturesque...

“Stone Town, the capital.”

published 15/06/2001

ProGreat market food and masai jewellery.

ConsYou can't walk about on your own.

The ferry across to the island from Dar es Salaam can be quite expensive, and tends to fluctuate quite a lot. We paid about $50, for the return trip. It takes about 3 hours to get across, and it can be very bumpy. We were met at the port by a guy called Halim, who took us to the hotel, arranged...

I completed a trip around Tanzania in 2001 and on to Zanzibar and it was one of the most amazing experiences ever. I would full recommend not only travelling to the idyllic unspoilt north eastern coastline of Zanzibar, but to partake in such an exciting adventure. Doing at the age of 16 really broadened my horizons too, something I have recommended to my sister who is looking to go on a similar trip
