DETAILED ITINERARY FOR 5 DAYS EXPLORE ZANZIBAR LUXURY BEACH HOLIDAY SAFARI
DAY 01: OFF TO ZANZIBAR
You will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to Arusha airport for your flight to Zanzibar. Upon arrival, transfer to the hotel for dinner and overnight stay.
For some dose of history to kick 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
Right on the northernmost point of the island, the beach that surrounds this area is truly stunning. Azure waters and white sands are what awaits 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
Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
DAY 04: ZANZIBAR BEACH HOLIDAY
Today you will have Breakfast at the hotel and a full day relaxing at the beach of North Nungwi. These are the two main islands of Unguja and Pemba. Over centuries, different cultures have influenced Zanzibar to become what it is today. Sumerians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Phonecians, Indians, Chinese, Persians, Portuguese, Omani Arabs, Dutch and British have settled here at one time or another and influenced the local culture into the present fusion.
