The name Zanzibar evokes images of palm fringed coastlines framing white sandy beaches and the warm crystal clear water of the Indian Ocean. It's no surprise then that the sultans of yesteryear chose this location as their key trading post. Venture through the UNESCO listed Stone Town marvelling at the unique architecture, Arab forts, local markets and discover the spices that made this island famous.
We've travelled to the island many times and love its combination of history and beaches. We like to have a couple of nights exploring Stonetown before heading off to one of our stunning beach resorts for some serious rest and relaxation!
