Zanzibar island

Located about 25 miles off the Tanzanian coast, ‘Ugunja’ as it’s locally known, covers approximately 650 Square Miles (60 miles long and 20 miles wide). It is known for its beautiful white sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs, and the thrill of historic Stone Town, the main town. The town is old and characterized by bustling bazaars, mosques, cathedrals and grand extravagant Arab houses. Most of the houses were built in the 19th century.

Zanzibar’s Cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper and other spices are among the finest quality in the world. It is said that these spices were the ones that brought the sultans of Oman here in the first place and thereafter started the infamous slave trade.

Zanzibar has some of the best diving spots in the world and the coral reefs around the island ensure that the marine life is abundant. Other interesting places to visit include Jozani forest where you will see the rare red Colobus monkey that is endemic to Zanzibar.

The Arabic town of Zanzibar possesses interesting relics, the former Sultans Palace set in gardens on the front near the Arab Fort and Beit el Ajaib, the Sultan´s House of Wonders, the Marahubi Palace built for the harem of a Sultan Prince, the Kidichi Baths, a gift from an early Sultan to his persian wife, the houses where Livingstone and Burton lived.
