Why Zanzibar is a Top Destination for Families


Mummy says… If you are wondering where to take your family over the Easter holidays, then look no further. I have found the perfect place for you. When you are travelling with family, all you want is some quiet time where you can all relax and forget about all your worries. This is why I recommend the ultimate Paradise, Zanzibar!

Why Zanzibar is a Top Destination for Families

When you go to Stone Town, you will see unique architecture that was built in the 19th century, such as
beautiful carved doors. Stone Town is the main city area of Zanzibar. You may be slightly overwhelmed
with all the delicious food options here – from local Zanzibari cuisine to seafood markets and Italian food
are easy to find. You cannot miss on the Forodhani Gardens street food. You may see several stalls
selling all kinds of food. You must also go spice shopping and visit the local museums.

While you may want to stay in Stone Town, where access to many places is easier, others prefer quieter
places that are a few kilometers away from the City Centre. You will be spoilt for choice with all the hotels in Zanzibar. You have the option to stay in the city or go to a quiet beach resort. For a family holiday, I recommend that you stay in a beach resort where the children can have the space to enjoy
quieter beaches and bigger swimming pools. Many of the hotels are quite affordable, and there are different price ranges to fit any budget.

As for the beach, you have limitless activities that you and your family can do. From kite surfing to scuba
diving, snorkelling, to jet skiing and parasailing. Depending on where you are staying, these activities can usually be arranged with your tour operator or hotel.

The best beaches in Zanzibar include Nungwi beach, Paje beach, Kendwa beach, Bijuu beach and
Kiwengwa beach. Kiwengwa beach is on the North Eastern coast, with some of the most beautiful and
sophisticated hotels on the island. If you and your family want luxury, this is where you need to go.
You are promised pure heaven with rich culture, a huge history and gorgeous beaches. I would
recommend four to five days here, and to book a package there are several tour operators ready to give
you the perfect deal. One such operator is Viva Africa Tours in Moshi, Kilimanjaro.
