Holiday cottages in Zanzibar

Paradisiacal Timeout in the Indian Ocean

White beaches, palm trees with hammocks and azure blue sea characterize the holiday resorts on the main island Unguja, where you can immerse yourself in the culture and nature of the country between colonial buildings. Right by the water you can rent a vacation rental with a view of the crystal clear ocean in Matemwe, Kendwa or Makunduchi. Alternatively you live in an apartment of a villa or a holiday apartment in a bungalow.

Vacation in Zanzibar

Location and orientation

State Party of Tanzania

To the north of the coastal city of Dar es Salaam, the Zanzibar archipelago extends some 30 kilometres off the coast of West Africa. In the Indian Ocean Zanzibar is divided into the main islands Unguja and Pemba as well as small side islands of the Zanzibar archipelago. The majority of the 1.1 million inhabitants live in Zanzibar City.

Things to know

Culinary specialities

Through the dark epoch of the slave trade, international influences reached Zanzibar, which are still part of the varied cuisine today. Asian, European and Arabic accents characterise national dishes such as pilaw, stews and curries. The spices of the region are particularly intense, as cardamom, cinnamon and cloves are added to numerous dishes. We highly recommend visits to typical restaurants or to spice farms where nutmeg, vanilla, ginger or pepper are cultivated.

Probably Sansibar means "coast of the blacks" translated freely.

Top 3 travel tips

1. Stone city

A small part of Zanzibar City is Stone Town, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. Where once the slave and spice trade flourished, there are lavishly designed houses of the early 19th century made of light coral limestone and mangrove wood. Very representative are the palace Beit-el-Ajaib, the St. Joseph's Cathedral or the fortress Ngome Kongwe.

2. Colourful market activity

In the capital the Darajani Market takes place daily and transforms the square around the Anglican Cathedral of Christo into a hustle and bustle. The merchants, who offer seafood, live animals, traditional clothing and spices, line up close together.

3. Interesting underworld

About 20 kilometers north of Zanzibar City are the caves of Mangapwani, Coral Cave and Slave Chamber. The natural coral cave Coral Cave consists of coral stones which line the way to an underground freshwater lake. A few metres further is the Slave Chamber, a slave cave built artificially and used until 1873 as a collection point for slaves who were subsequently sold.
