Zanzibar is an extremely interesting island with Stone Town the only functioning ancient town in East Africa. Stone Town is a World Heritage Site with loads of history and culture. Zanzibar offers a large array of accommodation, from budget options to luxury.

There are also plenty of bars, restaurants and activities on Zanzibar to keep you occupied. From swimming with the dolphins, long deserted idyllic beaches, sailing, deep-sea game fishing, cultural tours and spice plantations – Zanzibar is just another example of why you should consider Africa for your next yacht charter holiday.

Zanzibar’s coastline offers some of the best beaches in the world, but sand and surf vary depending on what side of the island you’re on. On the east coast, waves break over coral reefs and sand bars offshore, and low tide reveals small pools of starfish, small minnows, and anemones. Up north, ocean swimming is much less susceptible to the tides, and smooth beaches and white sand make for dazzling days in the sun.

Where to Sleep

Zanzibar has excellent hotels, both in Stone Town and on the beaches.  We always recommend that visitors combine a short stay in Stone Town. to explore the history  and architecture of the isles’ cultural heart, with a stay on one of the beautiful Indian Ocean beaches.  The east coast of Zanzibar Island (Unguja) features several establishments on the beach, ranging from small and intimate properties to larger resort outfits. Sima Safari facilitates booking on different hotels with best deals.

Where to Eat

With Zanzibar known as the ‘Spice Islands’, it’s little surprise that spices play an important role in the cuisine here.  With African, Arab, Goan, Indian and Chinese influences, traditional food is truly a fusion experience.  Most restaurants feature spices in their menus although there are also Italian, Thai and other international establishments for those looking for something a little closer to home!
