Good morning all
We are planning to go on vacation as a group of friends to Zanzibar. We will be a mix of couples and singles and we are all around 28 years old. We are from South Africa, and we are thinking of going for about 7 nights. We would like to stay right on the beach - be able to snorkel and fish, swim and relax.
I am looking into the different options, and have a few questions:
- We are planning to go in August this year. Is this a good time?
- What part of the island is the best part to stay? And hwat type of accommodation would be best for us as a group? We are not looking for 5-star, we are more focussed onbeing right on the beach and just enjoying ourselves. Focussing more on budget than on 5 star.
- I was thinking that Full Board is the way to go - as then you have no worries about expenses while you are on holiday. But I've read a few opinions that this might not necessarily be bad to opt for Half Board? As long as drinks are included? We just want to avoid getting a huge bill at the end of our stay and having to worry about that the whole time we are there.
- Any recommendations for specific hotels/resorts/accommodation? Keeping in mind the halfboard, budget option?
Any other tips or recommendations are very welcome!
