Discover The Beauty of Zanzibar At Elewana Kilindi Zanzibar: Surrounded by the sound of waves crashing, beautiful sunsets and white sand beneath your toes, the Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar is sure to leave you enamored. Steeped in culture, this beach destination offers visitors the ultimate getaway for those looking for a unique, and enigmatic paradise.
Zanzibar is reputed to have some of the best diving in the world thanks to the coral reef that surrounds the island. The shallow waters serve as a playground for a myriad of tropical fish, including a dazzling variety of Indo-Pacific marine fauna perfect for snorkeling aficionados to discover. When you dive into deeper waters, you’ll find lush coral gardens – often stretching as far as the eye can see – and large game fish (barracuda, kingfish, tuna and wahoo) hunting together with large Napoleonic wrasse, graceful manta rays and sharks. The enchanted island of Zanzibar has been likened to that of a time capsule, one that has been unopened by modern tourism. But now – courtesy of Elewana Kilindi Zanzibar – the opportunity has arisen to unlock all that is wondrous about this destination.
