Zanzibar is located in Tanzania in East Africa. It is a place of remarkable beauty. Zanzibar is an archipelago of historic Indian Ocean islands, awash with atmosphere, intrigue, and idyllic beach experiences. As the birthplace of the Swahili, site of Sultans’ Palaces and renowned for its spice plantations, the little island republic of Zanzibar is larger than life and is a must-see for tourism enthusiasts.
Zanzibar’s Stone Town
Visitors to Zanzibar tend to arrive and leave via the old Stone Town, the island capital and a historic hub of commerce and culture. This ancient centre was the seat of the Sultans, whose crumbling palaces, bath houses and mosques are a legacy of this opulent and vibrant time at the heart of the gold trade.
This old town remains a wonderful place to spend a night or two, getting lost among the elegant, ancient buildings, eating fresh fish on the sea front and breathing in the sights, sounds and smells of a truly Swahili centre.
You can revel in ultimate peace and quiet on some of the island beach hideaways around the main island… there is nothing like zooming across the sea to your own haven, to enjoy the true pampering style that has been perfected here.
There are some fabulous beaches on the islands of Zanzibar, and many choices for an ideal spot to sit back and watch and marvel at the startling blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Whether you prefer the blissful privacy of a private island or the amenities of a larger hotel, there are good options for all.
Zanzibar is extremely beautiful and serene, a perfect vacation spot. Visit today!
