Zanzibar. The very name conjures up images of ancient markets, fragrant spices and romantic dhows sailing upon the turquoise blue waters of the Indian ocean. Zanzibar is a magical island laced by some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. And Zanzibar Festival Tours is fast becoming the travel provider of choice for the Spice Island. We do it all - small group tours for Zanzibar's famous music and film festivals, custom-made holidays and also mainland safaris. We are a British company based in London and our goal is always to exceed your travel expectations.

" Beach resort was fabulous and all the food on the tour was really good. All in all a great Festival and adventure! "- Sarah, East Anglia

Our small group tours are a terrific way to savour the Swahili culture with its unique blend of African, Arabic, Indian and European influences. All inclusive and fully hosted by tour leader. See UPCOMING TOURS

Or let one of our Zanzibar specialists tailor your trip for you including airport transfers, accommodations and excursions - 365 days a year! We can recommend the best places to stay because we have been there ourselves. See our popular ZANZIBAR GETAWAY


We also do safaris on the mainland and we work with some of the top outfitters in the business. We use only 4 X 4 safari Land Rovers or Land Cruisers and our guides are among the most experienced in all of East Africa. Kilimanjaro, Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti and more. The majority of our guests opt for a safari to complement their trip to Zanzibar. See SAFARIS
