Tanzania’s jaw-dropping beaches offer the perfect place to unwind after your safari. A bush and beach holiday is the trip of a lifetime, and Tanzania’s mix of sugary beaches and idyllic islands immersed with rich history and culture is one of our favourite ways to enjoy a truly unique holiday.
Take a visit to Zanzibar
Nestled just off the coast of Tanzania, Zanzibar is one of our favourite options – we’ve seen many beaches all over the world, but Zanzibar’s definitely remain some of the best. In our eyes there’s nothing better than hopping over to the cluster of islands after an exhausting Tanzanian safari, settling into a sun lounger on the beach and taking part in exhilarating water sports, including snorkelling, diving, and sailing in traditional hand-crafted dhow boats.
After a bit of R&R, peel yourself off the sunbed and venture to Stone Town, a charming old-style town brimming with captivating architecture, winding streets, and a fascinating mix of Arab, Indian, Persian and European influences. We love delving into Zanzibar’s food markets too, our favourite being the Forodhani Night Food Market in the Forodhani Gardens where you can wander along bustling stalls in search of fresh seafood, grilled meats and salads.
Explore Mnemba Island and Mafia Island
Soaking up the sun on Mnemba Island is also a fabulous way to enjoy Tanzania. A small island located just off the coast of Unguja – the largest of the Zanzibar archipelagos – Mnemba offers a truly rustic and secluded oasis where evenings are spent dining on the beach and days are spent truly revitalising.
When it comes to Zanzibar’s multitude of islands, Mafia Island is one of our favourites. Virtually untouched, Mafia Island is one of our best hidden secrets, home to one of the richest reefs in the world, and hundreds of miles of sugary white sand. The lodges and hotels here are wonderfully intimate and romantic too, perfect for a bush to beach honeymoon of a lifetime.
