Your Destination —
Zanzibar isn't only an ocean-side paradise: the island's rich history and culture will be a thrill to any visitor. Visit the ancient Stone Town, and learn how Zanzibar acted as a crossroad for international trade between Eastern Africa, The Indian Ocean, China and Europe, resulting in a unique blend of cultures. Zanzibar was formally known as the Spice Island, and it's easy to see why to this day: clove, pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon waft through the air and are still incorporated into traditional meals.
