Zanzibar Town Vacation Packages

Zanzibar Town is located approximately 2 miles north of Mazizini and about 45 miles north of the national capital Dar es Salaam.

Take the family outside and see something new at one or two of the tranquil public parks. A couple of the more popular green spaces are Prison Island and Chumbe Island. Forodhani Gardens and Jozani Forest Reserve are also worthy.

Breathe in the fresh air, skim rocks in the shallows and listen to the seabirds flying overhead at Shangani Beach. This is a great spot to go to for those who love the sea.

Find a moment of tranquility by exploring the area's natural reserves. Some popular spots are Kwale Island and Chapwani Island. These two protected areas are delightful destinations where you can be out amongst local animals and plants.

You can never know what makes a place tick until you know its story. Thankfully, Zanzibar Town has preserved a range of its most important historic sites. Some of the most fascinating monuments and heritage sites are the Slave Market, the House of Wonders and Livingstone's House.

Visit Zanzibar Town's proud defenses and forts and take a walk through the region's more turbulent times. Despite its rather formidable exterior, Old Fort is now a peaceful place, perfect for reflecting on the fortitude of the region's earliest residents.

Anglican Cathedral is a snapshot of times long gone. Combining culture, history and architecture, this well-protected site is worth a visit.
