Zanzibar

For most, when they hear the name Zanzibar, the picture that immediately comes to mind is plentiful soft sand, beautiful beaches, blissful sunset by the beach and magnificent coast lines. And rightly so too. But Zanzibar has a lot more to offer than just some of the finest beaches in the world.

Zanzibar is rich in heritage and history from a mix of Arabic, Indian, African, Persian and European influences. With these heritage comes the way of life and architecture of these cultures. An example of where one of such can be seen is the paved alley of Stone Town’s old quarter, a UNESCO World Heritage site. You can also visit the House of Wonders, old Turkish bath houses as well as the Dhow Countries Music Academy where you can listen to the Taarab music, a blend of classical Swahili poetry, percussion and rhythm.

For some, Zanzibar is the Spice Island. Visit spice plantations to learn about how spices such as cloves, turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon grass and black pepper are cultivated, processed and used for culinary and medicinal purposes.

Zanzibar Island is a surrounded by magnificent white beaches that are rated amongst the finest in the world. Visit them to swim, dive, snorkel or just lounge the hours away, while shoals of luminous fish graze over nearby coral reefs and pods of dolphins frolic offshore. You can also take long walks, sipping cocktails and watching the sunseton the beach. Water enthusiasts can also do scuba diving, kayaking and even sailing on the old wooden dhows. What’s more, you have well over 50 smaller islands to pick from.

Nature lovers can visit the Jozani Forest Reserve, home to the endangered Red Colobus Monkeys – one of the rarest primates in Africa which are endemic to the island. Here in Zanzibar, you can also see the Kizimkazi dolphins, tortoises and turtles as well as hundreds of different butterflies (at the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre), numerous birds and a variety of interesting plants and animals.
