Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Essque Zalu


Safari Highlights

It's easy to relax and unwind at the decadent Essque Zalu Zanzibar where nothing is too much trouble for any guest.

Essque Zalu Zanzibar

Classically Beautiful

Alongside sandy white beaches, an idyllic lagoon and luscious tropical gardens, 40 suites and nine ocean view villas make up Essque Zalu's accommodation. With neutral colour schemes and bold touches of African art, the resort is a beautiful reflection of Zanzibar island life. Suites are incredibly spacious and all have their own individual charm and unique appeal making them ideal for families of up to four. Each one boasts a master bedroom, lounge and outside terrace or balcony.

A Plethora of Opportunities Essque Zalu at night

The choice of activities available* while staying at Essque Zalu are endless. If culture and history are your thing, why not wander into Stone Town UNESCO World Heritage Site or board a wooden dhow and set sail for the historic Prison Island where you can snorkel with giant turtles. If water sports are more appealing you can try scuba diving, jet-skiing or parasailing close to the resort. If land-based adventure appeals then there are a number of different hiking routes to explore in the nearby mountains. *All activities are available at an extra cost.
