At the seaside, on the island of Zanzibar, The Dongwe Club welcomes you in its lovely gardens sloping down to an endless white sandy beach, where you can smell the aromas of spices and sea. You will be enchanted by the lush vegetation and beautiful coral reef sea bottom. An unforgettable holiday to discover African wildlife, with forest excursions, safaris in Tanzania and swimming with the dolphins. We will make you live a tropical dream, but with Italian taste and tradition. The Zanzibar archipelago is located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania. It consists of two main islands, Unguja and Pemba, and a set of smaller islands including Tumbatu, Mnemba, Uzi, Mesali, Latham. Zanzibar, also known as the Spice Island, is the largest island on the East African coast. After being the focus of interest for Sumerians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Chinese, Portuguese, Arabs of Oman, Dutch and English, the island has recently become part of Tanzania. The Shirazi Persians and Omani Arabs were those who stayed longest and created a kingdom and it is precisely their influence which is still visible on the island. The eastern coast is surrounded by a coral reef full of colourful tropical fish. Long sandy beaches and beautiful lush vegetation await you in this corner of paradise. Come and discover Zanzibar!
