Guest Comment

"My wife and I, along with our seven-year old son, took a Deeper Africa organized trip to Kenya and Zanzibar in June 2016. It was the trip of a lifetime, and the personalized planning and guidance from Karen and the Deeper Africa staff made it so. They went above and beyond more than once: for example, when I left my credit card at our hotel in Zanzibar, they managed to retrieve it and deliver it to me later in Nairobi. I've traveled to over 50 countries on 5 continents and I've never had a better, more seamless, more personalized experience than that provided by Deeper Africa! Consider me a fully satisfied customer who plans on traveling with them again."

Trip Overview

Zanzibar is an exotic mix of tropical beaches and unique culture. Stone Town’s harbor bustles with yachts, ocean going vessels, and sailing dhows. In ancient times, intrepid mariners came from the farthest reaches of the Indian Ocean into this harbor. They came for island spices and exotic treasures from the heart of the African continent. Those who stayed brought languages, ideas, and lore from all across the world, blending into the culture of Swahili.

This journey begins on the beaches of Matemwe, on the northeast shore of the island, allowing you to ease into the rhythm of island life, where you plan your day around the tides. Matemwe beaches have white sand, great snorkeling at the nearby Mnemba Atoll, and a close relationship with their neighboring fishing village. After you’ve enjoyed Zanzibar’s beaches you’ll explore the twisting streets and bustling bazaars of the ancient trading city of Stone Town.
