Zanzibar: Island Getaways And Tanzania Safari Holidays Combined

After you have spent a few days in the large Tanzania wildlife reserves, it is natural for you to get tired of all the heat and dust that you had to go through just to view the magnificent animals of Tanzania. If that is the case, then you should pay a visit to the island of Zanzibar on your Tanzania safari holidays.

Zanzibar is archipelago in Tanzania. It is made up of several small islands. The two main islands of Zanzibar are Unguja and Pemba. All of these islands have crystal clear blue waters and sand as fine as powder. Zanzibar is just 25 kilometres from the mainland of Tanzania so it is just a short distance to travel should you decide to stay there for a few days on your Tanzania safari holidays. It is the perfect place to spend a relaxing Tanzania safari holiday. It is also perfect for couples on their honeymoon.

Zanzibar does not only boast of its beaches. It is also home to quite a number of animal and bird species. You can spend your entire Tanzania safari holidays there if you desire. However, there are no large animals in the island but there are smaller animals that can only be seen in Zanzibar such as the Zanzibar leopard and the Zanzibar red colobus monkey. If you have been on Tanzania safari holidays before and you have seen “The Big 5” and all the other large animals in Africa then Zanzibar is a perfect choice for you. There are antelopes, monkeys, bush pigs and other smaller animals scattered all over the island.

There are lots of activities for you to do on your Tanzania safari holidays in Zanzibar. You can go snorkelling, scuba diving, exploring the many marine reserves in the island, viewing the sea turtle nesting grounds and just taking in the very diverse marine life in the island. At the end of the day, you can just lie back on the beach and take in the view of the spectacular Zanzibar sunset. You can spend most of your Tanzania safari holidays in Zanzibar exploring the beautiful marine life of the island and you will not be disappointed.

Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar, is also worth a visit on your Tanzania safari holidays. It is a historic site that is a great source of information about the island and does not lack for beautiful sights either. In Zanzibar, you have the option of how you want to spend your Tanzania safari holidays. You can either spend it on the beach and in the water or spend it exploring the unique animals and sights found on the island.
