Staying in Zanzibar has been the highlight of many people's trips to Africa.  There are 4 different locations to stay.  

    If you want a feel for the local culture you will want to stay in Stone Town, which is the largest city on the island and affords many travelers the unique flavor of  the Spice Island.

    The East coast was seldom visited until recently.  Due to vast improvements on public and private transportation this coast has grown to be the home for several of the nicest hotels on the island.  It is approximately 75 minute from the airport.

    The North coast is home to the traditional Dhow-building industry.  Many people come to this coast to see the exotic ruins of palaces from an Imperialistic Era and to have fun at the turtle aquarium.  

    The South coast is often speckled with dolphins along the shore.  Many travelers stop here for quiet and relaxation after a strenuous Kilimanjaro ascent.
