Luxury Holidays in Tanzania and Zanzibar with Only Exclusive Travel
Zanzibar and Tanzania offer the ultimate in Indian Ocean experiences; Zanzibar with its fascinating historical Stone Town and magnificent beaches, and Tanzania with its clove production and some of the best diving experiences in East Africa.
Zanzibar Holidays – The Residence
The paradisiacal shores of Zanzibar are truly exotic. Rugged coral and limestone slopes, tranquil, caster-sugar beaches that descend gently down into crystal clear waters abundant with marine life is but a short list of the reasons to visit this place. Tall coconut palms and stalking Pandanus cast their wondering shadows over the white sands and swaying hammocks, while Green Wood Hoopoes and Weaver birds flit and flutter between the green leaves and pendulous fruit high above. Diving from a boat in the clear, blue ocean off Zanzibar is one of the most exhilarating experiences to be had on a holiday in East Africa. The visibility is usually very good, the water warm and the marine life diverse and innumerable: swaying weeds and soft coral all seethe with minute organisms and shoals of shimmering colourful marine wildlife.
The island of Zanzibar is the number one beach location in East Africa; an absolutely wonderful island of tropical white-sand beaches, lush plantations, an incredible history and a fascinating culture influenced by Arabic, Indian and even European customs. Stay at The Residence luxury resort to experience the wonders of Zanzibar.
The Five Star Resorts in Tanzania
This is probably one of the oldest known continuously inhabited areas on Earth; fossil remains of humans have been found dating back over two million years. It has obviously been the place to be for a long long time... Take part in this long-standing tradition and choose to holiday here.
Tanzania is home to the highest point in Africa, the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, located in the north-east of the region. Attracting people from all over the globe to gaze upon and climb the mountain, Kilimanjaro is a landmark that simply cannot, and should not, be missed when in the area.
See thousands of wildebeest, hundreds of hippos, and powerful African mammals in the ecologically diverse Katavi National Park and Serengeti National Reserve. The latter, Serengeti, is home to four luxury safari resorts: Singita Sasakwa, Singita Sabora Tented Camp, Singita Faru Faru and Singita Serengeti House. All are within a smaller area named Gremeti, which is managed along with the local people to create a sustainable environment; all crops are locally farmed and the produce is used in the food for the resort.
Swahili and English are the official languages of Tanzania. So in true Tanzania style, drink a dawas cocktail, meaning "magic potions" in Swahili, whilst staying at the most exciting and opulent safari resorts in Africa.
