ZANZIBAR

Zanzibar Island is part of Tanzania. It is a small archipelago made of 2 sister islands namely Ugunja and Pemba. Zanzibar Island is only 60 miles long and 20 miles wide but the fame outdoes its size. It has beautiful sandy beaches with frying coral reefs. The historic stone town is said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa.

The Swahili culture, which is very unique in Zanzibar, is a blend of Arabic, Persian and Indian among other cultures.
The culture and the Swahili language make this island more romantic, legendary and fascinating. You can arrive Zanzibar by flight or a ferryboat from Dar-es-salaam. There are several excursions available while in this island.
