Exotic and dream-like, Zanzibar is one of the most beautiful destinations on the planet. Begin your adventure at the archipelago’s historical capital, Stone Town, and make for the waterfront to visit the iconic House of Wonders. The 19th century masterpiece with enormous carved doors and impressive slender pillars is stunning to see up close. Stop off at the magnificent 17th century Old Fort before wandering among intriguing royal artefacts at the Palace Museum. No trip would be complete without discovering the idyllic beaches in Zanzibar. For azure waters and pristine white sand, leave the capital behind and cruise across to Nakupenda Beach. Whether you want to do some surfing in Zanzibar, snorkel, swim with dolphins or just marvel at peacocks and tortoises in their natural surroundings – there’s so many things to do in Zanzibar.
