Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous island destination located off the coast of Tanzania in East Africa. The main island of Unguja is home to the spectacular Stone Town, a historic centre which takes on both Swahili and Islamic influences within its local culture. Northern villages such as Nungwi and Kendwa are lined with luxury beach hotels and villas and are coveted for their paradise views and crystal clear waters. Zanzibar as a destination is a honeymooner’s haven and a beach lover’s dream with world class water sports to boot – including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, water skiing and sailing on traditional local dhows. And some local sights and attractions not to miss are the House of Wonders Museum, the Old Dispensary, the Peace Memorial Museum, the Old Fort of Zanzibar, the Hamamni Persian Baths and Chumbe Marine Park.
