Experience Zanzibar Island, Tanzania

Zanzibar’s name alone conjures up images of romance and mystery, and the truth does not disappoint. With its sister islands, Ugunja and Pemba, the island provides the ideal relaxation destination. These islands have attracted seafarers and adventurers from all over the world for centuries.

Today, Zanzibar’s main island welcomes a new wave of explorers who have come to marvel at the island’s rich heritage, which is expressed in the people’s architecture and culture. This island also provides cultural experiences, such as historic Stone Town, which is one of Tanzania’s seven UNESCO World Heritage sites. Furthermore, visitors can unwind on the sparkling white, palm-fringed beaches, where the azure waters of the Indian Ocean beckon swimmers, divers, fishermen, and water-sports enthusiasts alike. If that isn’t enough, visitors can inhale the fragrant scents of cloves, vanilla, cardamom, and nutmeg as they learn why the island is known as “The Spice Islands.”
