Reasons you should visit Zanzibar : Zanzibar is a unique island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania. It is the best safari destination in East Africa to experience history, culture, exploration, and ecotourism on the beach. It looks like it has everything that a tourist might want to see. It has a unique ethnic past that is the result of the many travelers who have been there for hundreds of years. Arabs, Indians, Persians, Europeans, and even a little bit of Chinese people all left their mark on the city’s culture and architecture, which now adds to its charm. Many empires rose and fell at the same time, leaving behind ruins and other signs, but the traditional Zanzibar still feels their influence.

Along with strong Swahili influences, Zanzibar is unique in every way: its food, language, fruit and spices, furniture styles, fabrics, the beautiful hand-made artefacts and jewelry you can find in their small duka stores, and, of course, its natural wonders, which set it apart from any other island seaside destination in Africa.

When you think of Zanzibar, you can’t help but think of the virgin beaches with their untouched, pure white sands, the bright blue waters of the Indian Ocean, and the lush tropical plants that create a spell of beauty and peace. Even more interesting is the sea life that lives in the warm ocean water or the animals that live in the Jozani Forest Reserve, such as the red colobus monkeys and other animals. Focus East Africa Tours will take you to Zanzibar and the other islands in this stunningly beautiful group, where you can enjoy a world of beauty and peace.

  1. Stunning beaches and romantic sunsets.

Imagine lying in the late afternoon sun on soft white sand close to the Indian Ocean. You are in one of the world’s vacation paradises that not many people know about. As the sun starts to go down, you can see a group of dolphins on the horizon. Doesn’t it sound like the stuff of dreams? But it’s real in Zanzibar.

There’s no need to book for a certain time of year because the normal temperature is between 24 and 28 degrees Celsius every day.

  1. The perfect backdrop for #travel gram pics.

Photos of dhows, dolphins, and food shops are the best. If you like blue water and white sand beaches, you’re also in luck. If you love taking pictures while travelling, Zanzibar should be at the top of your list.

 3. Stone Town, Zanzibar’s cultural capital, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Stone Town is a valuable part of our country. This town can only be described with the word “ancient.” It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because the buildings haven’t been changed since they were built in the middle Ages. The narrow streets that lead to bazaars and churches in Zanzibar give visitors a romantic idea of the “old days” and are a must-see for tourists.

  1. Love marine life? Zanzibar has world-class coral reefs.

The animals and plants along the coast of Zanzibar are hard to describe. They are definitely something you have to see for yourself. Snorkeling is something that people do every day on this island. But why wouldn’t you swim every day when you’re in Zanzibar? The underwater world of Zanzibar is full of dolphin pods, colorful reefs, and schools of beautiful fish. Scuba diving is the best way to see all of these things.

Check out our marine conservation volunteer programme, which works to protect all marine life in the area, for a more in-depth safari experience.

  1. Sustainable Ecotourism Experiences.

We are all about responsible travel, which means discovering a place in a way that respects and helps the people and environment there. This is right for Zanzibar. They give visitors a wide range of ecotourism activities that help keep their ecosystems and cultures alive for the long term. Put the “responsible traveler” badge on your belt the next time you go on a safari, whether you stay in an eco-lodge, help out with our community or marine conservation programme, or go on an ethical dolphin tour.

  1. Dolphins.

Zanzibar gives tourists a once-in-a-lifetime chance to swim with wild dolphins. If watching a pod of dolphins dance in the waves isn’t enough, swimming with wild dolphins is. Dolphin tourism is a big part of Zanzibar’s economy, which is why our volunteers teach local boat drivers how to run tours in a fair way that helps protect and preserve these amazing animals. Already booked your flights to Zanzibar? Make sure to find a tour that doesn’t harm dolphins.
