I have divided my holiday in the North and in the East Cost. Having visited Zanzibar several times I can say that this was the best spot of this side of the Island. Palumboreef is a beautiful resort, Italian owned and for sure with the best food of the Island. Home made pasta and fresh fish are always present at...

Very typical tropical environment! Of course, you have to agree that you travel to tropical conditions. Al services are a little bit slow, but pleasant. Some of visitors can be surprised by very high tide, but you can clearly watch the sea and decide about right time to go swimming. The main goal was safari at Selouse - excellent, well...

Were assisted in accommodation for 5 as original accommodation booking was totally unsatisfactory. Taking a short walk along the beach we found paradise. Friendly and most helpful staff members Alli and Carolina were an absolute life saver during the remainder of our stay. Were even able to provide a Doctor in the resort. THANK YOU once again.
