Location of Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel in Zanzibar

Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel has one of the best locations for Zanzibar hotels in Zanzibar, Tanzania, overlooking a breathtaking beach.

Zanzibar is an archipelago made up of Zanzibar and Pemba Islands, and several islets. It is located in the Indian Ocean, about 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast, and 6 south of the equator. Zanzibar Island (known locally as Unguja, but as Zanzibar internationally) is 60 miles long and 20 miles wide, occupying a total area of approximately 650 square miles. It is characterised by beautiful sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs, and the magic of a historic Stone Town - said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa and recently declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

There are no large wild animals in Zanzibar, and forest areas such as Jozani are inhabited by Monkeys, bush Pigs and small Antelopes. Civets - and rumour has it, the elusive Zanzibar Leopard! Various species of Mongoose can also be found on the island. There is a wide variety of birdlife, and a large number of Butterflies in rural areas. The coral reefs that surround the East Coast are rich in marine diversity, and make Zanzibar an ideal location for snorkelling and scuba diving.

At present, Gulf Air, Ethiopian Airlines and KLM (together with Kenya Airways) offer international scheduled flights to Zanzibar. Several large carriers fly into Dar es Salaam, which is only a short trip by air or sea from Zanzibar. Amongst them are British Airways, Swissair and Emirates Airlines.

Air Tanzania, Kenya Airways and Ethiopian Airlines have regular flights to Zanzibar. Dar es Salaam is also served by them, as well as Air Zimbabwe, Egypt Air, Air India, Air Malawi, South African Airways, Royal Swazi Airlines and others. Several sea ferry companies ply the waters between Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam.
