Pristine beaches, historical towns and incredible marine life - Zanzibar is a idyllic family beach destination

The exotic island paradise of Zanzibar is the perfect option for families, whether you're combining it with an East African safari or visiting Zanzibar as a stand-alone beach holiday destination.

There are plenty of activities to keep parents and children entertained, including dolphin safaris, guided mountain biking tours, windsurfing, kayaking, kite surfing, sailing, diving and snorkelling.

There are also a range of fantastic excursions and day trips including mangrove forest and dhow trips, cultural visits to local villages, excursions to Prison Island, the fragrant spice plantations, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stone Town, and Jozani Forest which is home to the Red Colobus Monkey.  

Zanzibar has a wide choice of luxury family-friendly accommodation. Baraza Resort and Spa on Bwejuu Beach, located on Zanzibar’s southeast coast, is a fantastic option for families.

This luxurious fully-inclusive resort has 30 beautifully designed, one and two bedroom villas, each with a private plunge pool and spacious terrace. The facilities include a well-equipped children's club, large outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, and a water sports club offering windsurfing, kite surfing, sailing, snorkelling and diving.
