Nicknamed the spice island, Zanzibar is one of the jewels of the Indian Ocean. A place where Arabia meets Africa the island has lured visitors for centuries and has a wealth of history and culture thanks to its fertile lands, tropical oceans and trade routes. You get a sense of a bygone era with the fishing villages and their traditional dhows and rigger canoes among the swaying palm trees.
The turquoise warm sea around Zanzibar withholds an underwater world of tropical life, diving among the coral reefs you will see schools of colourful fish, sharks, manta rays, turtles, dolphins and even whales!

Take a trip to the spice plantations to learn about the lucrative, fascinating and tasty experience of learning about the exported flavours, which fuelled the economy of Zanzibar over the past 2 centuries.
