Zanzibar-East, Tanzania

The United Republic of Tanzania’s Archipelago, Zanzibar (officially named Unguja) is the main island.

Located in the Indian Ocean, the Spice Street has been a commercial point of sale for thousands of years, Zanzibar’s long white beaches have seen Sultans, slaves, pirates, adventurers and navigators.

A meeting point of various people and traditions, Zanzibar has the highest representation of Swahili culture in perfect balance with Islamic culture . The ancient Stone Town neighbourhood (UNESCO World Heritage) with its palaces and typical Arab doors is a spectacular example of this fusion.

Zanzibar today fascinates and captures visitors with its white powder sand beaches, crystal-clear coral sea a multicoloured home of a myriad of fish, lush forests, but also with its characteristic baobabs, aromatic spices and seductive African atmosphere of a joyful and welcoming population.

Our hotel ‘Kibanda Lodge’ is just a short walk from the beach and offers a relaxing atmosphere with a mix of modern comfort with traditional influences.

For Diving we work with two trusted partners, Team Aqua servicing the north of the island and idive covering the east side.

Zanzibar has four seasons:

Rainy season, called “Masika” from March to May.
Season of small rains, called “Vuli” from October to November.
Dry season from June to October.
Hot season from November to March.
