Diamonds Mapenzi Beach is one of the most established hotels on the island of Zanzibar and remains an excellent and affordable choice for people who want an action-packed holiday. Great value for money, it’s an unpretentious resort with a fantastic vibe; fun and involving. Accommodation is simple and comfortable, the water sport facilities are brilliant – windsurfing equipment and canoes are complimentary – the all inclusive package covers a choice of three restaurants – the buffet is one of the best on the island - and two bars plus a daily stocked mini-bar (soft drinks, water and beer) – it couldn’t be better! There is also the à la carte restaurant on the beach – but here a supplement is payable. The low tide on the East coast adds to the experience when you can walk out across the beach for 1.5 kilometres to the reef.

The largest country in East Africa, Tanzania boasts the highest mountain on the continent, the exotic spice islands of historical Zanzibar, and the famous Serengeti National Park whose seemingly endless plains stage one of the greatest spectacles of animal behaviour, the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra followed by their predators. The Great Rift Valley gives rise to the unique geological formations found in the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater and Mt Kilimanjaro. It is also home to the world's largest game reserve, the Selous, covering an area larger than Switzerland. Tanzania is richly endowed with many animal and bird species and offers some of the finest game viewing on the continent. Dar-es-Salaam is the largest city, a hustling, bustling and surprisingly scenic tropical seaport that is a common starting point for trips into the country. A dusty safari into the vast wilderness is superbly complemented by time spent on the refreshing Zanzibar islands, with white palm-fringed beaches, beautiful coral gardens, and historic Stone Town - an exotic reminder of its days as a major spice and slave trade centre.
Tanzania is home to hundreds of different ethnic groups and cultures, from the red-clad herders of the Masai tribes on the Serengeti plains to the modestly veiled women of Zanzibar's Islamic Stone Town. The warmth and smiling faces of its friendly people will touch the heart of every traveller.
