Zanzibar's Regions

Mafia Island

If you looking to explore somewhere new for a little rest and relaxation, we think Mafia Island is the perfect destination for some barefoot luxury. Whether it is for nature trails to enjoy the native trees, animals and birdlife, cultural visits to villages to understand local village life and watch skilled craftsmen at work, or sailing in traditional dhows over crystal blue waters, Mafia Island is the ideal place to find your feet again.


Located on the Southeast coast of Zanzibar, Paje is a relaxing and stunning area to visit and it certainly lives up to the idyllic Indian Ocean dream. There is a consistent offshore breeze throughout the year, creating a comfortable temperature and the perfect weather conditions for learning to kite surf.

Pemba Island

Pemba Island, known as “The Green Island” in Arabic, is an island forming part of the Zanzibar Archipelago, lying within the Swahili Coast in the Indian Ocean. The Island is characterised by its stunning shades of blue waters and shifting sands.

Stone Town

If Zanzibar Town is the archipelago’s heart, Stone Town is its soul. It’s magical jumble of cobbled alleyways make it easy to spend days wandering around and getting lost – although you can’t get lost for long because, sooner or later, you’ll end up on either the seafront or Creek Rd.

Unguja Island

Unguja is the largest and most populated island of the Zanzibar archipelago. It is a highly popular destination for diving and snorkelling, ringed by some the best coral beaches in Africa.
