Over the centuries, different cultures have influenced Zanzibar to become what it is today. S umerians, Phoenicians, Arabs, Dutch, British and more have all settled here at one time or another and their influence can be seen in the myriad of forts and palaces, some in ruin, others still preserved. The World Heritage site of Stone Town is a wonder to explore for its architecture, people and shops and the cultural diversity of Zanzibar finds its core here in the streets and markets. Situated in the Indian Ocean island off the coast of Tanzania, and known as ‘The Spice Island’, much of Zanzibar’s interior is dedicated to the cultivation of cloves, cinnamon, pepper and vanilla, and most tour operators offer spice tours. The coastline of splendid tropical beaches is dotted with a wide range of resorts. They are the launching pad into the wonders of the tropical ocean that boasts some of the best diving and fishing locations on the African coast. The marine parks of Zanzibar and its neighbouring Islands are protected to sustain these natural wonders, and scuba diving is the best way to explore the beautiful reefs. Marine life is prolific in these waters and shipwrecks recounting the diverse history of the island can be also be explored. March to May often brings rain in the afternoons, but there is a long dry season from June to October making this the recommended time to visit. See pages 26-27 for tours available in Zanzibar through AfricaStay Weddings, Honeymoons, Groups, Incentives & Adventure Holidays Our consultants will advise you on the best hotels and locations to suit your needs for conferencing, your dream wedding or honeymoon. We’re also experts in climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and safaris, ask us for more information or a brochure. 3
