Where better to go after an action-
Zanzibar is a cultural safari in its own right, but the beaches scuba diving are the primary draw. In the North and East, the beach villages of Nungwi, Jambiani and Makunduchi await you. Here, you can relax in the warm, clear, shallow waters of the Indian ocean, or go for a dive along the many reefs that ring the island. The most popular dive spot, Mnemba Atoll is a major tourist draw.
The heart of Zanzibar is the ancient Stone Town. The tiny historical district of Zanzibar town is a cultural microcosm of the Western Indian ocean. Here you can see Persian, Arabian, African, and Indian influences vie for supremacy. The streets are so narrow that barely a moped can get through in places. Centuries old apartment buildings have been tastefully restored into hotels.

3 nights at the beach and 2 nights in Stone Town (or vice-
3 night/4 night combination allows you to spend a comfortable amount of time in both Stone Town and the beach resorts. Plenty of diving or snorkeling will keep you occupied at the beach, while endless wanderings in the alleyways of Stone Town will give you plenty of time to shop.
