We spent 10 days in Zanzibar at Azanzi. There is not a single thing I can complain about, the staff were awesome, the food delicious. The hotel organised us trips all around Zanzibar and we got to experience a lot of what there is to offer. There is no doubt I will be going back.

Just experienced the most interesting and exhilarating reef tour by our super guide Haji Abbas. He was able to spot and explain many amazing sea creatures, coral and plant species. He was patient, informative and knowledgable. I would gladly recommend him. Tharashini Moodley, Durban, South Africa.
