Some dose of history to ick-off your Zanzibar visit: When the Portuguese arrived in 1498, they found on the coast a series of independent towns, inhabited by Arabs, but not united to Arabia by any political tie. Their relations with these Arabs were mostly hostile, but during the sixteenth century they firmly established their power, and ruled with the aid of tributary Arab sultans. This system lasted till 1631, when the Sultan of Mombasa massacred the European inhabitants.

Day 03  Zanzibar Beach Holiday

Travel/activity: Breakfast at the hotel and a full day relaxing at the beach of North Nungwi

Accommodation: Langi Langi  Beach Hotel  

Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

Right on the northern most point of the island, the beach that surrounds this area is truly stunning. Azure waters and white sands are what await those that come here. The only drawback really is that many of the hotels have had to perch on the coral cliffs that run north from the village and, as such, lose their beaches at high tide. Generally, however, this is not a problem and, with the small backpacker community in the village, this is a great place to head if you like to get out of the hotel for a drink or two.

Day 04  Zanzibar Beach Holiday

Travel/activity: Breakfast at the hotel. A full day relaxing at the beach of North Nungwi

Accommodation: Langi Langi  Beach Hotel
