Zanzibar

The enchanting Zanzibar archipelago comprises the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba plus several smaller islets too. Zanzibar’s capital, Stone Town, is shabby-chic in a ramshackle yesteryear way, characterised by bustling bazaars, the heady scent of spices, winding alleyways and carved doors overhung by ornate balconies.

Easily accessible from both Kenya and Tanzania, Zanzibar is a match-made-in-heaven when it comes to the ultimate safari-beach holiday or honeymoon.
