Of Spices, Splendour and Azure Seas…

Explore Magical Zanzibar.

Zanzibar is the gift that keeps giving and for centuries, it has generously shared its offering of a unique blend of African and Arabian culture, history, spices, idyllic beaches, and breathtaking scenery. The Zanzibar archipelago is set in the Indian Ocean and made up of the larger islands of Pemba and Unguja (also called Zanzibar Island).

In Zanzibar Town, visitors can see delights such as the sultan’s palace, the House of Wonders, the Portuguese fort and gardens, the merchants’ houses, the Turkish baths of the old city, and ancient buildings decorated with balconies and gigantic carved doors.

 

Meanwhile, on the coast, fishing boats set sail, and in the countryside farmers tend fields of rice or the cloves, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon plantations that give Zanzibar its ‘Spice Islands’ moniker.

 

Beyond the ancient town, one sees a very different landscape as the Zanzibar coastline offers some of the best beaches in the world. The idyllic beaches are dotted with hotels, and the ocean becomes a playground for diving, snorkeling and kitesurfing.

 

There is something for everyone in Zanzibar, and for years it has drawn adventurers, seafarers, traders, couples seeking a romantic getaway, and dreamers seeking the perfect beach to dream themselves awake.
