Tanzania is home to one of the largest wild animal populations in the world, and the possibilities for safari and wildlife watching here are second to none. Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar are must see locations and the National Parks here are famous. With the opportunity to spot wildebeest, lions and cheetahs, Tanzania offers a unique chance to observe Africa’s wildlife.

Private Villa Tulia on the beach
I just wanted to thank you for letting us stay at villa Tulia. It was just the peace and quiet we needed after a gruelling week on mount Kilimanjaro. Everyone was wonderfully friendly and the staff at beach village along with Pili and the Masai's were incredibly helpful and attentive.
Jacek and Justyna have created a relaxing hideaway stripped of all modern annoyances leaving you with no option but to chill. Take plenty of bug spray and a good book. And some sweets for the kids on the beach.
I hope to be back in the future.

Holiday Bungalow in Paje with shared pool
Holidays for me have to be a combination of relaxation and adventure, this holiday was the perfect mix of both
This was my first time to Zanzibar and a holiday I will never forgot.
I booked to stay for 10 days, I wish I had stayed longer! The bungalow that I stayed in was very quaint. I loved its basic nature which blended perfectly with the gardens outside, a really space for relaxation and reading. Because it is private property you feel you can just relax without other people and families constantly going past. Going to the local store and cooking on your own stove was all part of the adventure. All of the basics were provided to a great standard, the shower in particular impressed me, great relief after a long day at the beach and was powerful enough to get salt out of my very thick long hair! (this is very important to me) The peaceful nature of the bungalow meant you had your own sanctuary if needed, however, its close proximity to the beach was ideal. I really enjoyed the beech bar and all that paje had to offer. I loved the walk along the beech to the next village and restaurant that looked out over the sea, walking back by moon light was magical. I also enjoyed trips into stone town where you are bombarded by smell and colour, a real mix of old and new, steeped in tradition whilst still offering a cold beer and the internet! I would recommend checking out all of the spices that this amazing island has to offer.
All in all an incredible holiday and adventure. The beaches are amazing, you think they look good in the pictures but with your own eyes they just get even better. There is lots to do and so much culture to take in. Alternatively, there is enough for you on the door step to do nothing but top up an amazing tan! The roads are not like they are in the UK and you do often come across the odd cow. I would always get advice on the best way to travel especially if you have a family and the rules of the road is you are hiring a car.
I was very impressed with how quickly the holiday was organised and always felt that someone was available had I had any grievances or questions.
Cant wait to go back.
Stu Berry yacht trip August 2011
Loved every minute of it. Chilled and superb trip. Great country, and perfect place to travel by yacht. Wonderful crew. …
Wonderful place - would go again!
We stayed at Villa Turquoise in Dec 2014 with our family of 2 sons and their girlfriends. We loved the house, the pool, the private beach - The staff were very friendly and helpful and always went out of their way to fulfill whatever you wanted. The place is great value for money, we think, and we would certainly go back. Advice for visitors - persevere with getting your laundry done and check prices of extra trips/excursions etc - they can be pricey. It was a fantastic holiday and a very special place. …
Excellent location overlooking the ocean.
Great house with excellent furniture.
Very tasty food. …
