You have come to the right place in Africa if diving and snorkelling are your thing. Snorkel off the beach and take a boat cruise to the famous Mnemba Atoll to find the largest populations of rare turtles ever seen together before. Nungwi is a traditional fishing village where visitors can buy fresh fish or watch the women harvesting seaweed for their ecotourism projects. 

Everything at the Z Hotel revolves around the swimming pool area and the lively bar with extensive sea views. Start here then wander down the beach to try out other bars and restaurants in a tourist strip that really parties. 

Stone Town is an hour away and excursions to Tanzania across the Indian Island Bay can be arranged. Voyage2Africa customises excellent bush-beach holiday packages incorporating your blissful Zanzibar Island holiday with a thrilling wildlife safari in famous national parks such as Ruaha and Tarangire.

Your busy day at the Z Hotel and on the Nungwi beaches calls for a relaxing spa massage at the new Sky Spa.

Feel comfortable surrounded by that African vibe, authentic Zanzibari hospitality and world-class facilities – then party all night!
