The island off the coast of mainland Tanzania measures 60 miles long and 20 miles wide and is well known for its beautiful beaches, coral reefs, swaying palms, seafood, spices and the magic of historic Stone Town.
There is also diving, fishing and snorkelling. The island’s turquoise seas and white sandy beaches attract many visitors, we know the hidden gems - the best beaches and small privately owned hotels - perfect after a gameviewing safari on mainland Tanzania or Kenya.
There was a time when there were distinct safari seasons across Africa. But things have changed over the years and visiting outside the traditional seasons is now not only possible, but often desirable.
