we specialize in luxury accommodation in zanzibar!

zanzibar retreats is part of africade – a dynamic travel company formed in 2003 by Claudia Batschari and Richard Boome. It is our passion for travel, combined with our creative itineraries and knowledge of our products that has ensured an ever-increasing number of satisfied clients.

Our love affair with Zanzibar began in 1998 and has been strengthened over the years as we are drawn back time and again by the magic of the Spice Islands. All properties featured on this website have been hand-picked by us for their charm and exclusivity.

We have negotiated excellent rates on your behalf. For this reason, we can confidently guarantee that our rates are the lowest you will find anywhere (and this includes,, etc.!)

Being a small company, we pride ourselves on the highly personalized service that we provide for our discerning clientele. Our primary aim is to recognize the unique character of our clients and to ensure that their individual needs are not only met, but exceeded in every way!

We welcomed Victoria Charters to our team in 2018. Victoria has spent over 2 years on Mnemba Island, and has a great passion for Zanzibar! She is a keen traveler and scuba diver (with an interest in Ocean Conservation), and her experience in dealing with discerning, upmarket guests ensures that you’re in great hands!
