5 Reasons to Visit Zanzibar
Zanzibar’s reputation as a paradise island is not an exaggeration – those who have already been and those who are hoping to go know that the island with its idyllic beaches and glorious sunshine offers the perfect escape from reality. This is exactly what drew Reef Choudhury in, but upon arrival, she fast realised that Zanzibar has so much more to offer...
1. The Beaches
The pristine white sand and warm Indian Ocean beaches, along with the picture perfect weather make for the perfect spot to forget your woes. Whether you’re a sun worshipper or a total water baby, you will surely find ways to completely surrender yourself to Zanzibar’s shores.
Zanzibar is a seafood lovers paradise. Have your pick from whole fishes grilled on an open fire, giant prawns and to-die-for crab claws! I adore seafood and the fresh and inexpensive seafood that Zanzibar is known for made this island my heaven!
3. Swimming with Dolphins
This is a must in Zanzibar. With an expert guide with you, you can swim with wild untamed bottled-nose and humpback dolphins in the warm waters of Zanzibar. This is a super special experience.
4. Snorkelling and Scuba Diving
With its stunning coral reefs and more than 350 fish species and diverse aquatic life, including frequent sightings of turtles and dolphins, Zanzibar is amongst the most spectacular in the world for scuba diving and snorkelling.
5. Red Colobus Monkeys
Discover the rare and very photogenic red colobus monkey, indigenous to the Jozani Forest.
