Introduction

Get lost in the alleys of Stone Town, or experience fresh vanilla, cinnamon and other spices on the plantations inland.

Zanzibar is both a popular destination for lazy beach escapes and an architectural museum to the East African slave and spice trade of previous centuries. A short hop from Dar Es Salaam by ferry, the island is a popular stop for visitors to Tanzania.
