Tanzania has more than 1400 kms of coastline which, together with the islands of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia make it the best African safari destination to combine the exploration of the world-famous national parks with a beach holiday. Along the coast, in the trading cities of Kilwa, Bagamoyo, Pangani and Zanzibar, from the mingling of African, Arab and Persian elements, the Swahili culture was born.
Zanzibar Island is the most famous of the Tanzanian beach spots and offers plenty of choice in terms of accommodation; the hilly island of Pemba is far quiter and less developed; Mafia boosts the 1st marine national park of the African continent and is a divers’ paradise. Pangani and Kilwa, on the mainland coast, are sleepy villages where time stands still and where you are likely to find the whole beach for yourself even during peak season.
Whether if you are into sports such as diving and kitesurfing or if you just want to lay down and relax on a pristine beach we will find the right spot to match with your expectations.
