Also known as the Spice Island, the beautiful island of Zanzibar is full of culture and history, shinning white-sand beaches with palms swaying lazily in the sea breeze, together makes Zanzibar a fabulous place to explore as well as a dream to relax and unwind.

Zanzibar is the semi-autonomous part of Tanzania in East Africa. It is composed of the Zanzibar Archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 25–50 kilometres (16–31 mi) off the coast of the mainland, and consists of many small islands and two large ones: Unguja (the main island, referred to informally as Zanzibar) and Pemba. The capital is Zanzibar City, located on the island of Unguja. Its historic centre is Stone Town, which is a World Heritage Site.

The Island is heaven for water sports activities such as swimming, snorkelling, diving with lots of luminous fish or just grazing over nearby coral gardens and pods of dolphins frolic offshore. The smooth beaches make the day dazzling in the sun.

The historic Stone Town sits in the island’s capital, Zanzibar. The historic heart lets you imagine yourself floating back in time. The Spice Tour gives the opportunity to head out into the live plantations to see, touch and taste Zanzibar’s many spices in its natural environment. Some of the exotic flavours include cloves, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices that have made the island famous.

If you wish to have Zanzibar’s eclectic street food, Forodhani Garden’s food market is your destination.
