This semi-autonomous archipelago consists of two main islands of Pemba and Unguja and is one of the best places to visit in Tanzania. Though this is a part of Africa, Zanzibar couldn’t be more distinct in terms of its culture, food, and religion. Zanzibar has been inhabited since the Later Stone Age period and has strong Asian, Portuguese, and British influences.
To say that Zanzibar is beautiful is an understatement. The place is blessed with incredible tropical beauty comprising coral reefs, vast grassy plains, thickets of coconut trees, and lush vegetation.
The beauty of Zanzibar’s Arab-influenced architecture and heritage is incomparable to any place in the world. The 19th-century ocean-facing Sultan’s Palace and the UNESCO protected Stone Town stand as a testimony to this. The buzz of this fun city can be caught at the Forodhani night market that offers traditional meats, fish, and snacks.
One of the most fascinating things to do here is to visit the intriguing Prison Island where slaves and people with incurable diseases were kept. Besides the slave trade, other aspects of the Zanzibari culture can be explored at the ‘House of Wonders’. Spices have always been a part of Zanzibar culture and can be explored through a local spice tour.
The weather here is tropical and warm due to its proximity to the Equator. The best time to visit is in the drier months of June-October.
