Spending a few days on the beautiful tropical spice island of Zanzibar, or neighbouring Pemba, is the perfect way to relax and recharge your batteries after climbing Kilimanjaro. A short hop by plane could see you celebrating your triumph with a cocktail looking out over Zanzibar’s world famous white sand beaches and turquoise waters.
We also offer a complete range of accommodation from hyper luxurious to budget boutique resorts. Below are details of our most popular resorts starting from as little as £79 per person per night plus transfers. Just let us know how many days you would like to stay on Zanzibar and we'll do the rest!

From Kilimanjaro it is a very easy flight down to Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia. You can fly from either Kilimanjaro or Arusha airports with one of 3 airlines: Coastal Aviation, Precision Air and Zanair. All of these have websites where you can book flights directly but the sites are pretty clunky so we recommend Alternative Airlines. They specialise in flights by all the small regional airlines and are particularly helpful if you phone. Flights cost about $150 depending on the time of year.
If you are planning to go to Zanzibar you should try and book your international flight as an open jaw ticket so that you fly into Kilimanjaro and return from Dar es Salaam thus avoiding the need to retrace your steps back to Kilimanjaro. KLM and Kenyan Airways flights are ideal for this. To get to Dar es Salaam at the end of your holiday you can either take a very short flight or if time allows take one of the very regular ferries which makes for a great trip in itself. Ferries can be booked by all of the hotels we use.
