Zanzibar - Tanzania regions
Zanzibar is the beautiful island resorts in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Tanzania, a tropical paradise like no other. The very mention of Zanzibar seems to set the mind wandering to pristine white beaches, tropical waters, blazing sunshine and palm trees.

Unguja, the main island of the Zanzibar archipelago, has a long and troubled history. Stone Town is the capital of Zanzibar Island which dates from the 19th century and it is now a recognized World Heritage site. Over the centuries Persian, Indian and European conquests have all influenced the style of the buildings. It is easy to tour the winding streets of this town by foot continuing on to the former slave trade markets at Kelele Square.

The former Omani palace has been beautifully restored keeping all the grandeur of the past. On display in the lobby are the pieces of famous artists in thick colorful oil art paintings. Other significant places in Zanzibar include Tippu Tip’s House, Anglican Cathedral and the Old Fort.

Zanzibar is a popular destination for Indian Ocean honeymoons like Seychelles and Mauritius. Zanzibar is different because of its white sand beaches, amazing range of luxury Honeymoon Zanzibar Hotels.

Shopping is an ideal way to end your Zanzibar holidays and stock up on some souvenirs from the different markets around the island.
