The Residence, Zanzibar

Exotic Zanzibar is the perfect post-safari tonic. Take time out to relax on white-sand beaches, snorkel in warm Indian Ocean waters and visit the UNESCO World Heritage-listed capital, Stone Town, with its fascinating maze of narrow streets and intricate architectural details.

This small island also boasts an impressive choice of world-class hotels. We love The Residence for its luxurious private pool villas and lush oceanfront gardens that were once occupied by Shirazi princes.

This itinerary is fully flexible – speak to us and together we can craft your tailor-made holiday.

Selous Game Reserve

You can reach Zanzibar from all of Africa’s national parks and reserves in a short flight or two, but the closest is Selous, just a 45-minute direct flight away. It’s Africa’s largest game reserve and is a great choice if you’re thinking of a short wilderness safari before a more extensive beach stay.
