Head to Tanzania's exotic island of Zanzibar for a week-long beach holiday at a classic sun, sand and sea resort situated on the east coast of the island. Sandies Mapenzi Beach Club has a long list of activities for all members of the family and you can expect long, white-sand beaches and a warm turquoise Indian Ocean.

Relax under the African sun beside the resort's large swimming pool with a cocktail from the pool bar or, if you're feeling energetic, select something from the wide variety of outdoor activities on offer such as wind surfing, canoeing and volleyball.

It's easy to arrange day excursions to Stone Town or spice plantations, and staff at the resort will be happy to organise adventures such as scuba diving, snorkelling and swimming with dolphins and turtles. This tour will combine well with a big game safari on the mainland - simply ask us how.
