EAST COASTAL CIRCUIT
Tanzania is not all about wildlife. There is also a slice of tropical paradise on this side of the world. In the coastal lands and towns of Zanzibar, Pemba, and Mafia, you can find some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, most extravagant diving spots, and fantastic historical experiences.
Zanzibar is the most popular beach and honeymoon destination in Tanzania. It features clear, turquoise-blue water, shallow sandbars, and many small islands. Aside from the gorgeous stretches of white sand beaches and the many diving and fishing spots, Zanzibar also houses many historical and cultural areas including the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Stone Town. You can easily revel in the beauty of this island from other parts of Africa and even other parts of the world.
The benefit of the eastern circuit is that it offers visitors based in a unique experience of beach meets the bush – a chance to see the wildlife and scenery the country has to offer, unlike the Northern parks. Parks like Saadani and Mikumi grow in popularity every year, and the Mafia Island Marine Park is fast becoming a hot destination in the Indian Ocean. The national parks, game reserves, and marine parks of the eastern circuit are perfect weekend retreats for guests on business-related trips to Dar es Salaam, Arusha, or Zanzibar.
