Zanzibar Island, Tanzania

JENMAN African Safaris provides a selection of Zanzibar island travel packages to suit anyone who wishes to experience this beautiful paradise. Famous for being a destination with the best beaches and experiences like diving and snorkeling, Zanzibar offers a unique safari experience to Tanzania. An island holiday as an add-on to your Tanzania vacation, Zanzibar island is a very popular option for travellers wanting relaxation, luxury and sunshine.

Activities and experiences in Zanzibar

Our island travel packages include countless opportunities for unique adventure and cultural experiences. While this East African island destination evokes images of white, palm-fringed beaches and turquoise waters, its rich history is also well worth exploring. Discover Stone Town, the iconic capital city of Zanzibar, on a walking tour through its winding streets, craft shops, art galleries and interesting coffee houses. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to Zanzibar’s national museum, the House of Wonders and the Arab Fort, Stone Town was also the birthplace of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury. Also known as the Spice Island due to the abundance of valuable spices like cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg, a tour exploring a spice plantation is a must-see on your vacation to Zanzibar. The Indian Ocean offers warm clear blue waters with excellent reefs for snorkelling and diving to make your Zanzibar safari an extraordinary experience. The seas around Zanzibar, Mafia, Chole Bay and the Pemba Channel are considered among the best waters for diving in the Indian Ocean. The diving is spectacular and includes colourful coral gardens, walls at various levels and many shelves and coral heads. Other activities to include on your itinerary for a Zanzibar holiday, are dhow and sailing trips, bird and dolphin watching, walking tours and hot air ballooning. 

Wildlife to spot on safari in Zanzibar Island

Expect a different game viewing experience when choosing Zanzibar for your Tanzania safari. While Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park on the island of Unguja may be small in stature at only 50 square kilometres, this wildlife haven is home to the endangered red colobus monkey and the Aders’s duiker. A great variety of wading birds can be spotted in the park’s marshy areas. A visit to the Ngezi Forest Reserve on the northwestern tip of Pemba Island will give you the opportunity to observe countless bird species on your vacation to Zanzibar. These include the African goshawk, the palm-nut vulture, scops owl, the malachite kingfisher and the Pemba white-eye. You will also be able to marvel at the unique Pemba flying fox, a large fruit-eating bat. 

The handful of protected marine parks makes Zanzibar a worthwhile safari destination in Tanzania. Mnemba Marine Park, located 10 kilometres from Stone Town, is home to the endangered green turtle and various other aquatic species. Menai Marine Park covers an area of 470 square kilometres southwest of Unguja Island and you will be able to spot dolphins, manta rays, whale sharks as well as sperm and humpback whales on your holiday.
