Explore the beauty of Zanzibar

The white-washed houses, picturesque mosques and unspoiled forests in Zanzibar make for a unique landscape that’s dotted with charming nuances.  Head to the markets and pick up fresh, local ingredients or simply take in the great atmosphere of Stone Town. Go trekking in the Jozani Forest and seek out the Red Colobus monkies, or explore the plantations that make Zanzibar famous as ‘The Spice Island’. Edged by pristine beaches, the picture-perfect scenery alone will draw you in.

An enticing destination that sits just off the coast of Tanzania, the archipelago of Zanzibar has retained a classic charm and culture. This was once East Africa’s commercial hub, merging over time to become a fusion of Arabic-inspired architecture, ancient ruins and sugary beaches.

What really makes this location alluring is the tranquil vibe that practically hums from every resort – it’s completely addictive. Lounge on the beaches as you look out to cerulean seas, wander the markets selling locally caught seafood, or explore the native wildlife that roam the landscape such as the indigenous Red Colobus monkey.

Of course, Zanzibar initially made a name for itself as a spice capital and much of that tradition still remains today. You can visit the spice plantations for local exports such as vanilla and perfumed cloves, or head to the capital of Stone Town where you’ll find classic architecture and friendly locals.

There are still secluded pockets of serenity and virgin landscape to be found here. The archipelago is also made up of Pemba, as well as a number of smaller surrounding islands, which remains virtually untouched with dense foliage sprawling across the rolling hillsides. Explore the emerald bays that fuse with unspoiled beaches, creeping inland to form winding and rugged terrain.

Why visit Zanzibar?

  • A melting pot of cultures and influences, Zanzibar has a unique character that makes it great for exploring
  • This is the perfect choice for relaxing getaways – the change of pace from further inland is instantly noticeable
  • The beaches – they’re pristine, sun-soaked and tranquil
  • Culinary delights in the form of fresh seafood, local spices and regional favourites
  • There’s a number of native wildlife species to be found here, including the ever elusive Zanzibar leopard which many consider to be a myth

My inspiration for The Ghosts of Happy Valley

My inspiration for The Ghosts of Happy Valley

Among my earliest memories are safaris into remote parts of Kenya with my parents: lions roaring around our tents at night, an elephant charging, breaking down in the bush and sleeping in the car, pushing the car out of the mud and getting a mud bath in the process, washing in rivers, glorious views, sunsets and nights skies exploding with …
