Over many centuries, different cultures have influenced Zanzibar to make 'The Spice Island' what it is today, impacting the local culture to create the present vibrant fusion. The cuisine, culture, and accepting, friendly attitude is a reflection of the multicultural past and present of the island.
Zanzibar's Indian Ocean offers world-class watersports including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and waterskiing. Or the white sand beaches are perfect for just chilling out if you fancy something less active!
Recently declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, why not visit the fascinating historical Stone Town, the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar? It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses. You can spend many idle hours and days just wandering through this fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.
