The Spice Island
Zanzibar, known locally as The Spice Island, is a fascinating mix of peoples, cultures, cuisines and architecture. While it was once a Sultanate of Oman, today it is a tropical paradise filled with swaying palms and endless miles of sandy beaches. Land in Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site and Zanzibar's capital, and immerse yourself in alley-ways untouched by time; surf, snorkel, and fish in turquoise waters, sample local cuisine and the freshest seafood, and learn about the people and tribes of East Africa.
Our Slice of Paradise
Situated on the Northeast Coast of Zanzibar, SafiraBlu is surrounded by untouched land and is secluded and away from the busy tourist attractions of the island. Local fishermen still dot the coastline with their dhows during the day, and with no light pollution, there is nothing between you and the starry skies at night.
