The main island is Unguja, customarily known as Zanzibar, with the capital Zanzibar City. Stone Town - the old part of the city - on the UNESCO World Heritage list. It is a colourful mix of styles and cultures, with each step you can see the rich past, in which the entire Arab world, the Chinese, the Dutch and the British participated. Here, the leader of the cult band The Queen - Freddie Mercury - was born. Zanzibar is known as a world ranking exporter of spices: thanks to the wonderful climate there are plantations of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper, which gave it the nickname of the Island of Spices. Today's Zanzibar is also a holiday island - wonderful natural conditions and a high standard of tourist services attract enthusiasts of unspoilt beaches and landscapes.

Zanzibar is famous for its beautiful beaches, the most famous are: Nungwi and Kendwa in the northern part of the island, and Kiwengwa on the eastern coast, where you will find the hotels selected for you. The beaches have sand of an amazing powder consistency, the colour of the ocean is incredibly emerald. A characteristic phenomenon here are the high and low tides of the sea. For a couple of hours the water retreats even more than a dozen meters. This is an unforgettable opportunity to walk along the bottom of the sea with almost dry feet! Due to this phenomenon, only some hotels have umbrellas and sunbeds on the beach. The wonderful image is complemented by traditional dhow boats, which appear to be suspended on the water, and picturesque silhouettes of Maasai, who in their colourful robes guard the safety of tourists. Complete exotics, unearthly landscapes, beautiful nature and a very high standard hotels is the ideal holiday offer for born travelers, those interested in the world, troubled spirits, as well as enthusiasts of beautiful beaches and family holidays in fascinating places.
