The name Zanzibar conjures exotic images of spices, ivory, ancient buildings and a balmy island steeped in history.  For 1,200 years Zanzibar’s location made it a centre of trade linking Arabia, Africa, Europe and the East.  Arabs, then Persians settled here over 1,000 years ago and for many years the island was a centre for trade in slaves, cloves and ivory.  Slaves came from deep in the interior of Africa carrying huge elephant tusks until the trade was abolished in the nineteenth century.

Today, you can see evidence of its past, especially in the Old Stone Town, a World Heritage site of beautiful old buildings with characteristic oak carved and with brass fittings.  The fusion of African and Arab cultures, spice plantations, long sandy beaches and tropical climate make Zanzibar an alluring place for relaxation and adventure.  Most people come here to enjoy the beaches and watersports, snorkeling and diving on the magnificent reefs.

Delightful boutique hotels like Kasha and Kono Kono make exquisite hideaways where you can enjoy privacy, delicious cuisine and quiet beaches with just a handful of fellow guests.  For an extra touch of class Baraza is like a Zanzibari dream come true with superb service and cuisine and gorgeous one or two bedroom villas with Moorish arches, mosaic and exotic décor.  For a few days in the Old Stone Town our clients love Seyidda, an elegant 17 room boutique hotel next to the old Royal Palace.

Zanzibar is fringed by a number of beautiful smaller islands, including Mnemba where you find the ultimate barefoot in the sand resort and some of the finest shallow and wall diving in the Indian Ocean.  For nature lovers, Chumbe Island has outstanding birdlife, canoe trips through mangroves and exceptional coral gardens making it the best location for snorkelling.  The unusual bungalows have high vaulted thatched roofs, and each is a few steps from the shore, the perfect place for an early morning dip admiring iridescent fish darting among the colourful corals.

Zanzibar is the ideal place to conclude a Tanzania safari or a safari in Kenya, being just an hour away by air.

Testimonials

Your firm did a very good job. At the camps we were given questionnaires asking how we liked our stay, and we were listed as UK citizens on the forms, I guess because we used a UK agency.  When we told the camp directors we were American they asked why we would use a UK agency.  I told them because you were the best for a trip to Africa!

Gary Ellis, USA

We have now returned home from our African adventure and would like to send a big THANK YOU to Africa Exclusive. We had the most amazing holiday, far beyond our wildest dreams and will remember it as a trip of a lifetime.

Helen Bowker, UK

We got back home yesterday after the most fantastic trip to Botswana that one could imagine.  Everything worked well and the various organisations looking after us were extremely efficient so that our travel and accommodation arrangements could not have been better organised - and the people of Botswana are lovely.  For us it really was the holiday of a lifetime.  Worth every penny.

Bryan Bates, UK

As regular visitors to Africa with Africa Exclusive, we’ve been constantly drawn back to the varied animal and bird watching, the landscapes and the ways of life.

Luxury safari pricing guide

We aim to provide you with your ideal holiday, individually designed just for you and expertly organised. When you book with us you receive this perfectly designed holiday, travel advice and preparation, flawless organisation of the trip, ATOL financial protection and our 25 years’ experience. Because we have excellent confidential rates with lodges and airlines, the price of your holiday will be generally the same as you would pay were you to somehow book all the lodges, transfers and flights yourself.

There is a world of difference between one of our tailormade safaris and most package holidays printed in a brochure. Package holidays are usually designed to be as cheap as possible and of course involve large numbers of people doing the same thing. Our safaris use small, more exclusive and remote camps usually with guests flying in, and often virtually everything is included in the price. The experience is completely different.

Many of these small lodges and camps have broadly similar prices, and it is possible to arrange a superb two week safari for between £4,000 to £7,000 per person ($7,000 – $11,000) season dependant, all inclusive. Realistically it is difficult to reduce that figure, and by including Botswana in peak season, chartering a private plane, disappearing to some magical desert island, or flying at the front of the plane it’s easy to substantially increase that figure!
