The Most Beautiful Airbnbs In Zanzibar, Tanzania
By Leah Freeman-Haskin
Planning a trip to Tanzania? Be sure to check out the Zanzibar archipelago located in the Indian Ocean, just a few miles from the coast of Tanzania. Known as “the spice island,” Zanzibar is renowned for its history and culture, picture-perfect beaches, and its mix of influences from Africa, Arabia, India, and Europe. If that sounds like the perfect getaway, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most stunning Airbnbs we could find to help lock down your accommodations.
The priciest on the list at around $326/night, this stunning ocean-side home has three bedrooms, making it the perfect spot for a group stay. The house is located right on the white beach of Kiwengwa and features “a unique blend of custom African and Italian décor and has its own private beach area.”
At just $54/night, this private cottage apartment is located within a tropical garden and is listed as “an ideal sanctuary for travelers seeking space & tranquility in a central & safe location.” The colorful decor and charming details make it look like the perfect oasis for an island getaway.
These newly built apartments are in the heart of Mbweni and are a mere 5 minutes from the airport. Boasting a “high standard finishing, furnished with coconut wood” as well as a garden with lounge facilities and a pool, this luxury apartment appears to be the ultimate chill spot. $260/night is all you need to call this place home for your next vacation.
Don’t be deterred by the $320/night price tag. With seven beds, you could easily split that with 6 of your closest friends for a super affordable stay. This “beautiful villa by the sea” comes with a personal guard, large garden, and swimming pool.
