Set like a Jewel in tranquil coral waters only 20 minutes flight from Dar es Salaam is one of the World’s most beautiful Islands. Zanzibar its name evokes romantic past.
To the shores of this Island came Samarians, Assyrians, Hindus, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Southern Arabians, Chinese and Malays. From these shores the great European Explorers – Burton, Speke, Livingstone, Krapf, Rebman and Grant set out on their “Voyage of Discovery” into the hinterland.
The different races that have settled in Zanzibar over the centuries have left impact on the people – religions, cuisine culture and architecture are but few.
Today visitors can visit the House of the Wonder (one of the Palace of former Sultan) walk the narrow streets of the old stone town, visit the Persian Baths, the old slave market, Prison Island and World war shrines.
The extensive white-sand beaches, fringed with palm trees that whisper in the tropical breeze offers virgin Holiday destination yet to be discovered.
