The Spice Islands
Zanzibar Archipelago

The Zanzibar Archipelago is made up of a chain of islands in the Indian Ocean, twenty-five miles off the coast of Tanzania. Renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches and coral reefs, visitors often spend some time relaxing in one of the many luxury resorts or boutique hotels to round off their safari itinerary while enjoying some of the many water sports on offer, including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing; and jump on the opportunity to sail in a traditional local dhow. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the old city of Stone Town is the cultural heart of the island with its winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses.
