Take advantage of the daily flights between Addis Ababa and Zanzibar island. Flight time is only just 4 hours and 25 minutes with a short stop-over at Kilimanjaro International Airport, which is also Tanzania’s gateway to some of Africa’s best game safaris.
Step off the plane onto the Zanzibar Archipelago and you’re transported through time and place. This is one of the world’s great cultural crossroads, where Africa meets Arabia in the Indian Ocean. In Zanzibar Town, the narrow alleys of historic Stone Town meander between ancient buildings decorated with balconies and gigantic carved doors. Meanwhile, on the coast, fishing boats set sail, and in the countryside farmers tend fields of rice or the clove plantations that give Zanzibar its ‘Spice Islands’ moniker. The idyllic beaches are dotted with hotels, and the ocean becomes a playground for diving, snorkeling and kite-surfing.
