Zanzibar Safari Accommodation

Accommodation while on safari in Zanzibar

Zanzibar is an exciting tropical island destination popular for its pristine beautiful palm-lined beaches, the tropical African sun, and the rich cultural heritage of the local Zanzibar. Zanzibar is made up of two main islands and many smaller ones. The islands are popular as a final destination for travelers after a Tanzania safari – Africa’s most popular safari country. It is also quite common for visitors finishing other African safaris. It is also a safari destination on its own and an exotic alternative to other tropical island destinations like the Caribbean islands and other African tropical island destinations like Mauritius and Reunion. Zanzibar tours are quite interesting and can have surprising diversity considering the size of the archipelago.

Safari accommodation in Zanzibar depends on your intentions for visiting the islands – Cultural, Historical, Wildlife, Watersports, Romantic getaways, Business, Exotic Seclusion or just to get a tan on the beaches of a truly exotic African topical island. Whatever your reasons, Zanzibar will always have the spot from where you can indulge yourself.

One of the most popular areas in Zanzibar is Stone Town – a rich historical and cultural area with lots of high quality hotels and lodges. It is common for visitors to base their Zanzibar holidays in Stone Town from where they can explore the rest of the Zanzibar island destinations. We have highlighted several Stone Town Hotels including the Zanzibar Palace Hotel and the Zanzibar Serena Hotel. Both are exquisitely done and are some of the best places from which to conduct your Zanzibar Tours.

Another equally exotic and historical destination in Zanzibar is Changuu Island or Prison Island as it is popularly known. Here we have covered the Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort and Changuu Private Island Paradise. Here you can indulge in watersports, enjoy private seclusion, visit the giant tortoises, or even grab your notebook and head out for a historical expedition of Changuu Island.

On the southern coast of Zanzibar, the fishing villages of Kizimkazi Mtendeni are popular for watching and swimming with dolphins, snorkeling and diving. Your adventures here can be enjoyed from Dhow Inn and Zanzibar Beach House, two private establishments that seem to offer a home away from home base for your travels in this corner of paradise.

There is one true wildlife destination in Zanzibar – the Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park – a scenic destination perfect for day excursions. The nearby Chwaka Bay and Uroa Beach areas offer an opportunity for kitesurfing, snorkeling, diving and other exciting beach activities. There is even a diving center with instructors. Our choice of accommodation here are Uroa White Villa, Ngalawa Beach Village and Chwaka Bay Resort.
