Zanzibar is a highlight of any tour to Tanzania and a welcoming resting spot after those wild safari excursions. A speck in the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar is well known all over the world for two reasons. Firstly, the spices it produces have given it a nick-name as the ‘Spice Islands’, In particular, the islands produce cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and black pepper. Zanzibar is the home of the endemic Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey, the Zanzibar Servaline Genet, and the (possibly extinct) Zanzibar Leopard.

Secondly an exquisite tourist destination offering popular tourism opportunities like snorkeling, scuba-diving, sailing trips, other water-sports, numerous bays, coral-reefs, atolls and some pristine tropical beaches within the Indian Ocean.

Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar is a World Heritage Site boasting stunning ancient houses, beautiful mosques, a Sultan’s palace and a labyrinth of narrow, winding streets. The melting pot of Swahili, Arab and Persian cultures makes Zanzibar a truly unique destination in Tanzania.
