A cross-cultural archipelago of Tanzania situated off East Africa, Zanzibar welcomes you with sincere “Jambo!” and smiling faces from locals at every turn. Completely different than the mainland, Zanzibar Island offers natural wonders, history, and a fascinating Swahili culture to delve into. This enigmatic isle is where Africa, India, and Arabia intermingle in trade and posh oceanside resorts invite travelers to escape along her beautiful beaches. Take some time to enjoy exciting watersports, embark on a waterborne safari to a coral reef, tour a working spice farm, join in a dhow sailing excursion, or visit the open-air food market. In Stone Town, the old part of Zanzibar City, stroll along the historic alleyways and take in the ancient architecture and massive elaborately carved doors. Once the sun goes down, stop into a “Babu Chai” for tea time or head out to the central park, Forodhani Gardens, for fresh local fare. Let your taste buds have an adventure of their own as you live the magic of this “Spice Island”, where clove farms are abundant and cinnamon, nutmeg, and black pepper are locally sourced. Here you will savor a true food fusion with flavor combinations influenced by Indian, Arab, European and African cooking traditions. With so much to see and experience, Zanzibar (officially called Unguja) is an unforgettable feast for the senses waiting to meet you!
