Q. What are the services and products offered
by Sun Tours & Travels?
A. Sun Tours & Travel is an inbound tour
operator with broad knowledge of covering the
entire tourism demand when it comes to the
islands of Zanzibar - accommodation, transfers,
excursion, domestic and international flights.
By coordinating with our partners we could
organise the remarkable safari experience
within Tanzania mainland, Kenya and Uganda.
Q. How do you view the Indian market?
A. Experience shows there are many Indians
travelling to Zanzibar like the last time we spent
a night with Hideaway in October, 20% of the
occupancy was enjoyed by Indians.
Q. What is the minimum number of nights
required to explore Tanzania and Zanzibar?
A. In order to combine safari experience and
beach relaxation, one requires spending at least
4 nights for safaris on the northern Tanzania,
Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. If one
has time on hand, additional nights could be
extended to Tarangire. The average number of
nights for a safari is six. 2 to 4-night Zanzibar
stay after safari is a good experience.
Q. How best can one explore Tanzania and
A. There are two motives to travel Tanzania,
those want to experience more of the islands
and like to use the opportunity of a short
period safari, like we have Selous & Mikumi
where a 2-3 night safari is possible. For those
who prefer safaris, we suggest northern
Tanzania and spending less number of nights
with Zanzibar. Internal flights add a higher
markup to the packages if there is no proper
travel programme. The convenient airports
are Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar. Airlines that
operate flights to both airports like Ethiopian,
Qatar and Turkish, one can book landing at
Kilimanjaro and departure from Zanzibar. With
this option, there will be only one domestic
flight in use Arusha– Zanzibar, which would
cost about USD 210 per person. Otherwise
the domestic flight cost will tend to be higher
than the international one, which will make
accessibility to the destination cost higher that
the package itself.
Q. Do you collaborate with trade partners in
A. We have one partner in India and the new
one—Indiana Travel Services looks potential.
Q. What are the tourist offerings of Zanzibar
and Tanzania that would interest travellers
A. Apart of safari experiences in mainland,
Zanzibar abounds in wildlife. There are many
islands within the Indian Ocean, which are
easy accessible and affordable for Indians.
That stands as a challenge if we will promote
Zanzibar as an island within the Indian Ocean.
Therefore, we should focus on the strategy of
promoting other aspects of Zanzibar in spite of
being an island.
