Just witnessing that kind of cultural richness in a single place is magnificent. Music is very important in Zanzibar culture, and one of its most sublime forms here is taarab (traditional sung poetry).

WHERE HISTORY COMES ALIVE..

 

Zanzibar’s Stone Town is easily one of the most astonishing historical destinations in the world. The whole town is trapped in time of its birth, so it can witness the exciting, yet sad story of Zanzibar. This UNESCO World Heritage site is home to the oldest building of the archipelago – the Old Fort, the last opened slave market, and the former palace of Sultan of Zanzibar, called the House of Wonders. The particular charm of this town is reflected in its bustling markets where you can buy natural products and handmade goods.

….AND THE SEA KISSES THE SANDS…

The mesmerizing coastline of Zanzibar is surely one of the greatest tourist magnets this archipelago has. Blessed with some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, white and silky sand, clear Zanzibar-blue (yes, there is no other shade like that) waters, and pleasant ocean breeze, this destination provides a specific sense of serenity. Nevertheless, it will not disappoint the travelers seeking luxury vacation or the adrenaline junkies. There are number of luxury resorts on the island and even more surfing and snorkeling spots. Do not miss out on the archipelago’s finest beaches – Paje and Bwejuu, and if you have the time visit the Village of Nungwi for a unique insight into local culture.

THE SPICE ISLAND

The nickname of Zanzibar clearly suggests that you can find delicious spicy food there. The signature dish, known throughout the world is Zanzibar pizza, which does not even resemble to what we call pizza. It is basically bread stuffed with minced meat, garlic, chili, egg, hot sauce and mayonnaise. Spices play a very important role in Zanzibar history, and even in the age of Arab rule, Zanzibar was the world’s biggest exporter of cloves. Now, you can taste anything from nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and saffron to lemon grass and cardamom. Visit the night market in Stone Town to get a taste of the popular cassava or fresh seafood.

FEELS LIKE HOME

One of the most convenient things about Zanzibar is that is very easy to spend time here, without feeling lost and like a complete outsider. The second language, after Kiswahili, is English, so tourists will have no problem in getting around the territory. Many tours on the main island (including the spice tour) can be self-arranged, and instead of joining a bus full of tourists, you can always rent or buy (the prices are very low, and it may even be cheaper than paying the rent on a daily basis) a car in Tanzania, and start your solo-adventure throughout the island. It is obvious that both the government and the locals want to leave a good impression on tourists, since tourism is one of the leading forces of the local economy, but you cannot fake that amazing Zanzibar welcome – it is the real deal.

GREAT SUNSET PLACE 

No matter how unsophisticated you camera is you will always get the best sunset shots in Zanzibar  ,whether the open terrace of Livingstone, mtoni marine near forodhani or Africa house having ice cream and pizza.

 

An old Zanzibar proverb says that when you play the flute in Zanzibar all Africa dances, and truly the music of this paradise archipelago is so loud and beautiful that it is summoning people from all around the globe to listen.
