Why we love it

Travelling with family to Zanzibar Island for a beach holiday is a great opportunity. The people of Zanzibar graciously welcome families and the Island is filled with child-friendly activities, parks and hotels that cater to young kids with care and attention. Zanzibar has long maintained an Old-World charm and very respectful people. The Island has just enough all-inclusive first-class hotels in Stone Town and superb beach resorts along the Island’s coastline on white sand beaches within short driving distances from Stone Town and walking distances to inland smaller villages and marketplaces, which makes Zanzibar well-rounded for families.
