4 Nights The Palms Zanzibar

book this trip



Soak up all the memories East Africa has to offer you by extending your adventure to enjoy a few days in paradise. Zanzibar is the magical Island where the fusion of Arab, African and European cultures has created a pace of life, a style of cuisine and a colorful tapestry of architecture, heritage, myth and magic that is found nowhere else in the world. Known as the Spice Island, this beautiful island place on Africa’s east coast is bursting with culture and history, seemingly at odds with its idyllic geography of white-sand beaches with palms swaying lazily in the sea breeze. Together this makes Zanzibar a fabulous place to explore as well as a dream to relax and unwind.
