Make a Holiday Rental Villa on Zanzibar, Tanzania Your Home Away From Home

 

Situated off of the east coast of Tanzania is the beautiful island of Zanzibar. Made up of several small islands, a Zanzibar holiday will give you lasting memories of adventure, culture and natural beauty. No matter what kind of getaway you are looking for, a Zanzibar rental villa will not disappoint. You can spend your days in total seclusion, admiring the beautiful Indian Ocean views on the west coast of the island, or dive head-long into some adrenaline-pumping activities in the north – the choice is entirely up to you!

Things to Do on Holiday to Zanzibar, Tanzania

If you can tear yourself away from your luxurious Zanzibar holiday rental villa, there is a host of activities just waiting to be enjoyed. Zanzibar has some excellent sandy beaches that are perfect for sunbathing. Visitors can also indulge in a spot of snorkelling, water skiing, windsurfing and fishing. Diving is a popular activity in the north and the east of the island as the coral reefs have an amazing array of marine life to be seen including Manta Rays and turtles. On the south coast, visitors can have the memorable experience of swimming with dolphins in the Indian Ocean. Other activities available on Zanzibar include cycling, walking, hiking, tennis and golf.

Places to Visit on Holiday to Zanzibar, Tanzania

Not to be missed on your Zanzibar holiday is a visit to the UNESCO Heritage Site, Stone Town. This town is thought to have been occupied for over three centuries and is a magnificent example of an old African coastal trading town. It is also the birthplace of former Queen front man, Freddie Mercury. Visitors will love the winding narrow streets and alleys, home to many shops, houses and bazaars. The architecture of Stone Town is just one reason for visiting; it is possible to see grand 19th century Arab houses with wooden verandas and almost every house in the town has an intricately carved door.

One of the notable attractions of the town includes the Old Fort which was built in 1560 and is the oldest structure in the whole of the town. The fort was used as a defence against the Portuguese and has the remains of an intriguing Portuguese church within the internal walls. Part of the fort has been turned into a cultural centre where visitors can see art and traditional dancing.

There is usually 15 inches of rain each month!
