                                          Some globe-trotters choose hotels based on location, but others book by name. And thanks to Expedia you don’t have to pick. It is why we offer such an expansive range of Independent hotels in Zanzibar, Tanzania. Known for well-appointed rooms and friendly, personalized service, each of the top Independent Zanzibar hotels guarantees an unparalleled level of comfort and quality.

                                          You’ll find best-in-class amenities like clean rooms and quiet atmospheres, and some Zanzibar Independent locations may even offer extra little benefits and discounts for frequent travelers.
