Zanzibar is a beautiful Indian Ocean archipelago that is steeped in history. Due to its strategic location and mild weather, Zanzibar was selected as the seat of power and main residence by the Sultan of Oman. Walking through historic Stone Town today, you can still see the Arabic cultural influence on this island. Zanzibar was also a base for famous explorers Livingstone, Speke and Burton. With fascinating focal points for historical tours plus a stunning stretch of beaches and coral wilderness, Zanzibar is a perfect place for an East African adventure!
