A haven of marine life and coral reefs

A range of family-friendly boutique and luxury hotels line the coast of this island paradise

Zanzibar is an amazing location for water based activities. Some of the more adventurous activities, like windsurfing and kitesurfing, have age restrictions, but there are many alternatives suitable for younger children, such as kayaking and boat trips. Most, if not all, of the hotels on the island provide access to PADI diving centres, many of which can cater to children as you as eight. Many of the coral reefs are protected marine parks, providing an excellent educational opportunity for older children to see the rich life the Indian Ocean has to offer.

Zanzibar also has many land-based attractions including the Jozani National Forest and its population of Red Colobus monkeys, and Stone Town which is bursting with exotic culture and fascinating Swahili history. You can of course simply sit on the beach and bask in the hot African sun while the kids take part in activities organised by the hotel Kids Club!

A Zanzibar beach holiday can be made even more special with a trip the Tanzania mainland and the safari experienced of a lifetime. Just ask one of our experts to help build your family’s once-in-a-lifetime holiday.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
