Best of Zanzibar Guide

Print this guide 
Zanzibar
The Zanzibar Archipelago, located in the Indian Ocean 15 miles off the coast of Tanzania, is a breathtaking spot to escape from the world. You’ll enjoy clear, turquoise-blue water; shallow sandbars perfect for wading; and many small, nearly deserted islands virtually unvisited by tourists. Explore the World Heritage Site of Stone Town, Zanzibar City’s old quarter. Or just go beach to beach between tiny fishing villages—each one's better than the next.

Cheetah's Rock is a unique, very special place where people and Animals interact directly - face to face, eye to eye. We are Not a Zoo, We are are Not a Wildlife sanctuary - We are something completely different. Prepare yourself for a magical, memorable and remarkable experience. We believe in introducing wildlife in a really different, much closer, interactive and more personal way. The welfare of our animals on Cheetah's Rock is paramount! less
