As promised the 2BWild Safari team visited Zanzibar this month (9-19 June 2016) with a view to exploring this beautiful mysterious island and to establish at first-hand the right destinations, advice, recommendations and transfers for you, our clients.

Our expectations were far exceeded as our trip unfolded, revealing ever-breathtaking sequences of tranquillity, history, spicy culture, friendly people, and – most of all – the most stunning ocean and beach vistas.

Just a short flight from Joburg to Zanzibar…

Best of all, access from Johannesburg is an easy 3 1/2 hour flight, and your dream holiday is underway.

To make it happen, do what we did: book one aspect right away, such as the flight or a portion of the accommodation twelve months in advance – and the rest will fall into place progressively. The best thing about this approach is that one’s life then revolves around that commitment, and as each aspect is firmed up and paid, one ends up on the departure date with a fully paid trip :).

Tip: Mango fly direct to Zanzibar and you can book early online, making the airfare cheaper. We are also most happy to assist you with your flight bookings.

Our travels took us from the town of Zanzibar, to the remote east coast peninsular, thn up to the northern town of Nungwe, and back to Stonetown

Our travels began on the remote and quiet east coast of Zanzibar – the perfect spot for a relaxed and tranquil tropical break; we then moved on to the vibey beach metropolis of the northern tip of the island, Nungwe village and surrounds; and rounded our visit off in the ancient alleyways and markets of Stone Town.
