The Place and The People
Rising up from the Indian Ocean about 25 miles from the Tanzanian Coast, this idyllic archipelago is lapped by turquoise waters lined with coral reefs brimming with an abundance of exotic marine life. At the heart of the island is Zanzibar’s old city, Stone Town. Known to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa, the coastal town’s maze of narrow alleys, lively bazaars, mosques and ornate Arab houses are a step back into time. Further afield lies tropical offshore islands, vast spice fields and rural villages which we’ll explore over this 3 day post-trip extension.
