Tanzania and Zanzibar: the tropical destinations this winter!
The Netherlands is a wonderful country to live and work in, as you may have already experienced. Everything is well organised and the landscape is beautiful and varied, especially due to different seasons. But that does also mean that the Dutch winter can be cold, wet and stormy. It makes sense that you start dreaming of sun and tropical beaches… and long for warmth, sea, beach, peace and delicious food.
Speaking of which, have you ever thought of tropical Zanzibar?
Ready for a winter trip to a sun-drenched beach?
Check out their special offer to Zanzibar!
This island off the coast of Tanzania (East Africa) is a beautiful destination for an idyllic and sun-drenched beach holiday. And this winter, KLM will fly you there directly, in just eight hours. This paradise is characterised by quiet fishing villages, beautiful diving locations, snow-white beaches and rich Swahili culture - the Dutch winter suddenly seems very far away!
Once you've settled in, you'll realise that this calm life is exactly what you need. You can spend your time with a drink in one hand and your e-reader in the other. Relax in your lounge chair with nothing else but the waves of the Indian Ocean, white sand under your feet and the clear blue ocean in front of you. You've earned it! But if you want to be a bit more active, you can go snorkelling, diving, canoeing, sailing… there are tonnes of options for you to enjoy.
Pristine places that you will fall in love with
Tanzania has much more to offer than just the tropical beaches of Zanzibar. It is the land of the Maasai, the Great Migration in the Serengeti, the Big Five in the Ngorongoro Crater, chimpanzees in the Mahale Mountains, trekking on Mount Kilimanjaro and more. Immense untouched National Parks and reserves with the most animals per square kilometre in Africa. Pristine places that you will definitely fall in love with.
