With a little more time laced into your beach island vacation discover an ancient past and a crumbling reminder of the Arab traders. Stone town; being Zanzibar’s capital has been the centre for centuries of traditional coastal trade up and down the east African coastline. A few days of exploration at the leisurely slow pace that “Stone town” demands will have you primed and ready for some beach relaxation. Zanzibar in general and the magical east coast has so much to offer that days slip past like the coming and going of the majestic tides.
If you’re an early riser enjoy a coffee at your private beach side bungalow as the local fisherman “pole” their way to deeper waters in traditional dhow sailing boats singing a rhythmic melody that has been sang for centuries. If you want something a little more exciting then kite holidays have boomed in the last decade with favorable winds and the Jambiani lagoon and bay making the best kindergarten for beginners and experts alike. A beach holiday in Zanzibar certainly offers a little magic and even romance for everyone with the added bonus that after a short flight you could be on game drives in the wilds of Serengeti plains viewing Tanzania’s abundant wildlife.
