Last year I visited the exotic African Island of Zanzibar. I didn’t know what to expect but this trip ended up being one of my best vacations to date. I went there in June and the weather was perfect, 25 degrees plus every day, T-Shirts, shorts and flip-flops were the dress code for most of the holiday.

On holiday in Zanzibar

My accommodation was at the plush Sea Cliff Resort and Spa.The makuti roofs and glowing Arabic towers of the luxurious resort, that overlooks the Indian Ocean, forms an exotic backdrop for travellers looking forward to escaping to the tropical beauty of East Africa. Nestling on the Northern-West coast of Zanzibar, just twenty-five minutes from the historical magic of Stone Town, visitors to the Sea Cliff are known to start relaxing as soon as they land in this lap of luxury. The natural colour scheme of cream and gold is complimented by antique furniture that reflects the ancient history of the island.

The island also offers various tourist attractions. I visited places like Stone Town, Prison Island, the house where Freddie Mercury from Queen fame was born as well as The Rock restaurant, voted by many travel writers as one of the top 10 restaurants in the world.
The Rock restaurant rises a short distant from the shore of the beautiful Michanwi Pingwe beach. Eating at The Rock is an experience you can’t miss: colours, relish and sensations blend together in unique magic.

Zanzibar is a hidden gem when it comes to travel on the African continent. It offers much more than you would expect from an Island Holiday. This African Island should be on your bucket list.
