Discover Zanzibar

Zanzibar – the mere mention of the word evokes a sense of mystery and excitement, of pristine white beaches and colourful markets redolent with the heady aroma of spices that made these islands famous. Islands? Yes, islands plural for originally Zanzibar was a powerful Sultanate that was comprised of Pemba, Unguja, Latham, Mafia Islands - over 60 in total.

Today the main island of Unguja is now known as Zanzibar and has some 15 smaller islands surrounding it!

Over the past two decades Zanzibar has become a favourite destination for tourists from all over the world. Whilst being a popular beach destination Zanzibar also offers some wonderful cruising for yacht based charters. Beautiful beaches, gin clear water with an average temperature in the high twenties, year round reliable trade winds all glued together by the incredibly warm Swahili culture makes this a must see destination.

Our ‘Discover Zanzibar’ cruise is designed to allow you to do just that – a six night/seven day charter that effectively circumnavigates the whole island.

Stopping off at either significant or simply breath-taking anchorages and exploring over 15 different islands makes for an unforgettable adventure that allows you to delve back into the mists of time.
