A Zanzibar safari takes you off the coast of East Africa and Tanzania, to an extraordinary island in the Indian Ocean. Considered one of the most unique places to visit in Africa, this island is more than its beautiful beaches and lush forests. It is full of fascinating and complex history and culture influenced by a variety of incoming cultures but none more so than the Arabic and East African cultures.
Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous part of Tanzania and many of Southern Tanzania’s safari parks are easily accessible from Zanzibar making it a great jumping off point for many safari options. If you’re interested in branching out to include other nearby safari tours, try our Zanzibar tailor-made safaris which can include whatever combination of safaris destinations you desire.
Zanzibar is also home to the Jozani forest, one of the last indigenous forests; it features mangroves, birds, native butterflies, the Suni antelope, wild pigs, and a variety of monkeys and other animals. See if you can spot the elusive Zanzibar Leopard.
Zanzibar safaris will let you take in the exciting curiosity, mystery and culture of Zanzibar itself, along with the fantastic natural wildlife and nature parks of its own and its elegant and exciting neighbours.
