In addition, tours to Zanzibar are formed and tour operator “Biblio-Globus” – on the basis of regular direct flights of the airline Utair (from Moscow).

Fly to Zanzibar is also possible with connections, but it is longer, usually more expensive, and, of course, less convenient for families with children.


Experts recommend going to Zanzibar either with children of middle and high school age, or with young children (e.g., infants).

“Tanzania can not be called a country where children’s holidays are developed, but in Zanzibar there are hotels that provide an opportunity for a comfortable family vacation” – underline the ANEX Tour.

The specificity of the hotel base in Zanzibar is that a family vacation here is in no way similar to the familiar to many families “Turkish” format. So there are no waterslides in hotels, water parks, amusement parks, etc. on the island. The all-inclusive system also does not resemble Turkey – the Turkish abundance and choice should not be expected.

As a rule, the children’s infrastructure of hotels in Zanzibar is limited to the presence of a children’s pool (or children’s section in the adult pool), a playground, some hotels have babysitting services. Children’s club is already a big advantage, there is only in some hotels. Strollers for tourists with small children is also better to bring. All this tourists should learn before buying a tour.

What can children and teenagers do with their parents in Zanzibar? By and large, there are two options.

Either a quiet quiet beach vacation, when a child plays mostly on the beach, eating fruit, swimming in the sea and the pool, enjoying nature. Or – and this is more likely for teenage children – they go scuba diving, snorkeling, going on sea and bike rides with their parents.

“In general, Zanzibar in its specificity is closer to the Maldives than to Turkey, only more simple” – summarized in Coral Travel. Specialists all interviewed tour operators note that tourists with children who were in Zanzibar, were satisfied with their rest – the main thing is to choose the right resort and hotel.


Family tourists with children should consider for a holiday in Zanzibar above all resorts in the northern part of the island. These are Nungwi and Kendwa in the northwest and Kivengwa in the northeast. Why?
