Zanzibar Trips

To think of Zanzibar is to think of exotic spices, palm-fringed beaches and the narrow streets of Arabic bazaars. The island has a fascinating history, due in part to its location 35km from the mainland of Africa. Arab traders arrived during the eighth century, intermarried with the existing population, and Islam was well established as the predominant culture by the 11th century. In the 16th century, Portuguese explorers arrived, followed by Omanis – it was governed by a Sultan until 1964 – and later still, the British. 

A must-visit on Zanzibar holidays, Stone Town has atmospheric mosques, alleys filled with colourful shops and a lively waterfront atmosphere with a fantastic fish market. Cloves and many other spices are grown in the lush interior of the island, while coral reefs, simple fishing villages and unspoilt beaches are to be found along much of the beautiful coastline.
