The island paradise of Zanzibar is the perfect place to end your overland trip after all the dusty roads of east Africa, and to top up that tan before you head back to snowy Europe. Many travellers also make Zanzibar their last stop after climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and rest their bones on the pristine beaches of this gem off the East African coast. Combining your game viewing holiday or safari with a few days on the beach is the best way to get the most out of your visit to East Africa.
