Zanzibar lies off the coast of mainland Tanzania, with legendary status of a heady scent of spice plantations, a laid back lifestyle, and dhow sails in the sunset. This is a destination easily tagged on to the end of a safari holiday, or a go-to place for a long weekend.
History runs deep in Zanzibar.
The mix of Arabic, Persian, Indian, European and African cultures that weave through these tiny islands, knits together an experience that lifts you into a time warp light years away from high rise city life.
The islands ooze local personality, Zanzibari style.
