Traveling to Zanzibar?
Maybe visiting Zanzibar (Unguja) after a safari in Tanzania?
Looking for Instagram captions on how to best describe the beautiful islands of the Zanzibar archipelago?

Search no more.

There is nothing like a relaxed and tropical getaway to Zanzibar. Beautiful tropical islands close to the East coast of the African mainland, with white sandy beaches, Swahili speaking locals, and spice and slaves trade defined history. You can visit it as a relaxing way to end a safari, as a place for your Honeymoon, come here on winter escape or simply as a tropical holiday destination in the Indian Ocean.  

No matter how many days you will spend on Spice Island, you will end up having a plethora of stunning photos. They might be from one of the famous beaches, like Paje or Jambiani, or Kendwa or Nungwi. They might be from Maasai or dhow boats. Perhaps some of them will be from flora and fauna found on Unguja, like Aldabra tortoises, Red Colobus monkeys or starfish. You may even be more creative and take them on the streets of the World heritage site Stone town, famous carved doors or in front of a Freddy Mercury museum in Zanzibar city.

There is truly no other place in Africa like Zanzibar. You are sure to have plenty of new experiences and adventures all captured in a ton of photos to share of your island vacation.

When you are ready to share them, here is a list of perfect Zanzibar captions. They are short, cute and punchy, with a mixture of KiSwahili words. You can copy and paste them under your Jozani forest photos, photos from a Spice tour or stunning beach photos.

This list includes 115 best Zanzibar captions for Instagram.
