Lamu & Zanzibar

– Best of Both Islands –

Away to Africa is excited to introduce our ‘Best of Two Islands’ Tour highlighting the beautiful islands of Lamu and Zanzibar!

You will begin this tour in Zanzibar, or the ‘black coast’, a Tanzanian archipelago off the coast of East Africa. Boasting beautiful beaches, Zanzibar is the perfect place to find relaxation. Walk through the cobblestone streets of Stone Town before learning of the East African slave trade. Wake up oceanfront in Nungwi, spend a day out in the ocean on our Safari Blue Tour and even spend time swimming with large sea turtles.

Next you’ll visit the quaint archipelago of islands known as Lamu. Spend time getting lost in the walkways of Old Lamu Town as this friendly town offers a hidden gem around every corner. Enjoy a dhow experience as you sail through the mangroves or spend your time relaxing on the white sands of Manda Island…either way you will definitely leave with a piece of Lamu in your heart.

End your time in Zanzibar at a Full Moon Party dancing on the beach under the stars of East Africa.What better way to close out your last evening in Zanzibar?
