White beaches and coral reefs off the coast of Tanzania, a country starting with T listed on Countryaah. Zanzibar or Ungunja as the residents call their island, is located just outside Dar es Salaam on the Tanzanian mainland.
Swimming, snorkeling and enjoying the white, fine-grained sandy beaches are the main activities here. The beautiful beaches, the exotic trees and the tropical vegetation are enchanting. The temperature in the sea is always between 25 and 33 degrees warm. The difference between low tide and high tide can be quite large, which periodically limits the bathing possibilities. Then a pool at the resort can be good to cool off in.
Here you experience the living history, the fascinating culture and the relaxing environment. The tempo is relaxed, or “pole pole” as they say here and in some places it feels as if time has stood still. The feeling of traveling hundreds of years back in time is found in Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar, which is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The buildings, which consist of coral stone, are dense and the alleys form narrow labyrinths. During a city tour, you will see, among other things, what remains of the former magnificent Sultan’s Palace. Islam is the largest religion here unlike the mainland of Tanzania.
Also visit the rainforest with the endemic red culubus monkeys or go on a fragrant spice tour. During the warm tropical evenings, enjoy your resort’s good food and drink.
