Zanzibar Island (Unguja)
Zanzibar is a unique coral island lying in the Indian Ocean, a short distance from mainland Tanzania. With Pemba and about 50 other islands, Zanzibar originally was an independent country until 1964 when it was united with Tanganyika to form Tanzania.
The island’s history goes back to many centuries, his heyday coming in the early 19th century when the Sultan of Muscat moved his court To Zanzibar. Spice cultivation was developed, particularly the clove tree, and that is why it’s called “Spice Island.” The magnificent coral reefs surrounding Zanzibar are a snorkelers’ and scuba divers’ paradise. The beaches are stunning and we do offer a wide variety of accommodations right at the beach.
