Get back your zest for life in Zanzibar!
The Zanzibar Archipelago in the Indian Ocean is open again to holidaymakers, so time to dust off your summer shorts and flip-flops and head on over to one of the most exotic holiday destinations in the Indian Ocean.
Situated 40 km off the coast of east-central mainland Africa, this magnificent holiday destination welcomes all travellers, for a single entry, if they have a negative PCR test. This means that South Africans can enjoy a fantastic December holiday in the sun exploring the wonders of the Spice Island.
World Leisure Holidays offers a variety of luxury resorts with 3 to 5-star accommodation to suit families, couples, the lone traveller and groups who are intent on getting away from the restrictions of the Covid lockdown and finding time to kick back, unwind and find that flagging zest for life!
For 5-star indulgence try any of the following:
Gold Zanzibar Beach House & Spa offers ultra-luxurious winding down on the shores of beautiful Kendwa Beach.
Sea Cliff Resort hotel, bedecked with traditional Makuti roofs and Arab towers lit by brass lights, the resort was designed to look and feel like Zanzibar of olde.
Karafuu Beach Resort & Spa is one of the most deluxe hotels on the east coast of the island, located on an idyllic stretch of palm-fringed beach with dazzling white sand and blue water.
And for 4-star indulgence try these resorts:
My Blue Hotel is nestled in tropical surroundings and is famous for its sunsets and picturesque seas.
Uroa Bay Beach Resort enjoys its very own private stretch of beach and also offers treatments at the full-service spa.
There is a variety of activities from cultural and historical to entertain while in Zanzibar, including visiting the Palace Museum, Prison Island and the Jozani Forest, to all manner of water sports, hiking, going on a spice tour, kitesurfing, boat trips, snorkelling, visiting Stone Town – once a fishing village that changed into a trading centre as is now a World Heritage Site — or even climbing Mt Kilimanjaro! For those who want to try local cuisine, you won’t be disappointed as the island offers a fusion of fare with influences from the Arabic and Portuguese cultures with a tinge of Africa thrown in to delight.
This island archipelago, once a trading outpost and a colony, is bursting with history and opportunities to explore. Vibrant markets and spectacular views will keep any holidaymaker enthralled and then, when the day is done, relax either alongside your resort’s pool or on the beach, watching the last rays of a glorious setting sun, while sipping on cocktails.
Zanzibar awaits your arrival, make it soon…
