  • Getting there


    It is a one-hour drive from the airport and a 20-minute drive north of Paje and a two-minute drive north of the other Zanzibar Collection properties. Zawadi Hotel sits atop a cliff with breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean. In the middle, the cliff recedes creating a pristine white sandy beach and guests have access to the beach from a short staircase leading directly to the sand. It lies in front of a lagoon and there is always water for swimming & snorkelling, even during low tide.

    Abeid Amani Karume International Airport is the main airport in the Zanzibar Archipelago located on Unguja Island. It is approximately 5 kilometres south of Zanzibar City, the capital of Zanzibar, and has flights to East Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. (Wikipedia)

    Stone town of Zanzibar, also known as Mji Mkongwe, is the old part of Zanzibar City, the main city of Zanzibar, in Tanzania. The newer portion of the city is known as Ng’ambo, Swahili for ‘the other side’. Stone Town is located on the western coast of Unguja, the main island of the Zanzibar Archipelago. Wikipedia

    Stone Town is a city of prominent historical and artistic importance in East Africa. Its architecture, mostly dating back to the 19th century, reflects the diverse influences underlying the Swahili culture, giving a unique mixture of Arab, Persian, Indian and European elements. For this reason, the town was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.

    Due to its heritage, Stone Town is also a major visitor attraction in Tanzania, and a large part of its economy depends on tourism-related activities, ( Wikipedia )
