My most special place is Zanzibar. I simply LOVE the awesome holiday vibe!

Zanzibar is one of several islands off Tanzaniaâ??s coast. This exotic East African island is full of local colour, authentic stone buildings and thatched roof accommodation on the beach. Absolutely breathtaking!

Its main industries are spices and raffia and it is still sometimes referred to as the Spice Island.

Zanzibar is a tropical paradise that is untouched and affordable. The palm-fringed white beaches and warm sapphire blue waters contrast with the heavy-set carved wooden doors and narrow winding streets seen in the main town. There are some exceptionally good reefs allowing for excellent diving and snorkelling.
