Zanzibar can be described as both mysterious and romantic. It is also the evocation of exotic, an archipelago nestled in the Indian Ocean which is 37 kilometers off shore from Tanazania. It is a destination that is not only mysterious, but legendary as well.
From this remote outpost, at the hub of the monsoon trading routes, history was enacted. Journeys of discovery were planned, Sultanate empires were established, and the first medieval global village was founded. Zanzibar retains the imprint of its historic legacy in the tumbling streets of Stone Town, in the Arabic-inflected Swahili language and the rare antiques of the bazaars and markets.
The haloes of its idyllic beach and the fragrant spice plantations make Zanzibar the ultimate Indian Ocean destination and the jewel in East Africas crown.
