HOLIDAY ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS FOR HOLIDAYS TO ZANZIBAR

Zanzibar is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 15-30 miles off the east coast of the Tanzanian mainland. Although consisting of over 50 islands and islets, Zanzibar is largely made up of two islands, Unguja (the bigger and most populated of the two - often referred to as Zanzibar) and Pemba.

Here are a selection of personally recommended places to stay in Zanzibar. We have visited, or stayed in, every one.
