Zanzibar

Historic pirate hideaway turned island paradise

Zanzibar has lured traders, adventurers, plunderers, and explorers to its shores for centuries. The Arabs sailed with the monsoon winds from Oman to trade in ivory and spices, and the earliest building in Zanzibar - a 12th century mosque - should most definitely be on your itinerary.

Stone Town is the Old City and the cultural heart of Zanzibar. Enjoy a day wandering through its labyrinth of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, and stop to admire the grand Arab houses, whose architects vied with one another for grandeur and opulence. Today they are being renovated, as part of the protection of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
 
When you are sated with history, treat yourself to a few days on the beach; go diving or snorkeling in the fabulous crystal clear waters, or experience a traditional dhow cruise. With the wind in your sail, a glass of wine in your hand, and the sunset turning the sky amber and gold, you will know you are in paradise.
