Zanzibar, off the coast of Tanzania, has sandy white sand beaches lined with palm trees and surrounded by coral reefs, making it the ideal place to end a safari.
There are a plethora of beach resorts (almost too many to count) that cater to a wide range of budgets. Regardless of where you stay, you’ll always wish you could extend your stay.
You’ll wish you had more time if you don’t spend at least three nights on the sand, unless you already live in a city with gorgeous beaches.
These days, Zanzibar receives a large number of tourists. Check out Pemba, Mafia, Rubondo Island, Pangani, Kilwa Kisiwani, and Bagamoyo if you’re looking for a fun spot to rest but want to escape the crowds.
Location: Zanzibar is located off the coast of Tanzania and is a 2-hour ferry ride from Dar es Salaam. You can also travel into Zanzibar from the Northern Parks, Arusha, Dar es Salaam, or the Southern Parks.
Scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, swimming with dolphins, local village visits, game fishing, windsurfing, boat tours, and sailing are only a few of the activities available.
Time: If necessary, spend at least three nights on the beach.
