14 Days Beach & Ocean Holiday Zanzibar
Zanzibar archipelago is lying 35 km off the coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean with water temperatures ranging from 25 °C up to 30 °C. The fascinating underwater world is well-known for its great visibility, encounters with dolphins, turtles and over 500 marine species. Coral reefs protecting the coasts create lagoons in 50 shades of turquoise. The white sand beaches are broad and flat. The moon’s pull creates tidal differences of up to 4 metres twice a day.
