Zanzibar

Mysterious, exotic and romantic. Zanzibar is the evocation of the exotic, an archipelago nestled in the Indian Ocean, 37km offshore from Tanzania. A destination both legendary and mysterious.

From this remote outpost, at the hub of the Monsoon trading routes, history was enacted, journeys of discovery were planned, Sultanate empires were established and the first mediaeval global village was founded. Zanzibar retains the imprint of its historic legacy in the tumbling streets of Stone Town, in the Arabic-inflected Swahili language and the rare antiques of the bazaars and markets.

The historic charms of Stone Town, the picture-book, palm-fringed beaches, colourful reefs and the cultural pride that exudes from every beach hut, every temple and every courtyard continues to lure visitors from around the world.

The haloes of idyllic beach that adorn the island’s coast, and the fragrant spice plantations that blossom in the interior make Zanzibar the ultimate Indian Ocean destination, the jewel in East Africa’s crown.

Zanzibar Attractions

Stone Town
Spend some time wandering about the old palaces, fascinating museums, characterful restaurants and bustling markets of this charming World Heritage Site. History and culture linger as mystically as the muezzin’s call in the narrow streets and coral-stone buildings.

Spice Tour
A visit to the spice plantations will dazzle your senses with fresh spices. A unique opportunity to visit the local farms and talk to farmers who will show you the traditional spices and fruits of Zanzibar. It is fun, educational and wonderfully aromatic.

Jozani Forest
You can see the endangered red Colobus Monkey and a variety of other rare forest-dwelling creatures and birds in this beautiful indigenous forest reserve. A guide will lead you on a nature trail through the gorgeously leafy forest. You can also walk through the lush tidal mangrove swamps on an attractive wooden boardwalk.
