ZANZIBAR – AFRICA ODYSSEY’S TOP SPOT FOR AN ALTERNATIVE EXOTIC BEACH WEDDING


Steer clear of the cluttered beaches of the Caribbean and take the aisle less travelled with an Africa Odyssey wedding to Zanzibar. The specialist tour operator has a selection of unique wedding packages at fantastic prices to this breathtaking East African island.

With turquoise blue seas, white powder sand and waving palm trees, complemented with a rich culture, tantalising cuisine and romance-inducing sunsets, this Indian Ocean isle sets a picture-perfect scene for a wedding abroad.  Loyal family and friends will also appreciate the small time difference and therefore lack of jetlag as well as fabulous UK summer-time weather – unlike the hurricane and monsoon seasons if couples head east or west!

Africa Odyssey’s Zanzibar wedding packages include:

The Ultimate Beach Wedding For Family And Friends At Breezes Beach Club

Situated on the south east coast on an untouched area of Zanzibar and b oasting a palm-fringed beach and great attention to detail, Breezes Beach Club is the perfect romantic getaway for a wedding.  For a celebration involving family and friends opt for the Classic Wedding package, priced from US$1,850, which includes a dedicated co-ordinator to ensure it all goes smoothly.

As the big day dawns, the bride and groom receive a complimentary relaxing massage and traditional henna painting.  With romance in the air, the ceremony takes place under a palm and bougainvillea canopy on the beach, followed by a reception of canapés and sparkling wine.  Celebrations continue into the evening with a private gala dinner in a romantic setting and featuring the island’s finest produce fused with the spices and flavours of the Indian Ocean. With breakfast in bed the next morning, there’s time to relax before joining family and friends for a private BBQ lunch on a secluded beach.
