Zanzibar makes an excellent beach extension to a Tanzania safari holiday
Off the east coast of Tanzania are the Spice Islands of Zanzibar with their glorious beaches and exotic culture.
Zanzibar has been attracting travelers for centuries, the first over a thousand years ago. Successive settlement by the Persians, Portuguese, the Sultan of Oman and the British have all left their mark on the character of the island and its people. Often referred to as the 'Spice Island', Zanzibar's two main exports over the last thousand years have been exotic spices, and more surprisingly, slaves. The island was at the centre of the world's slave trade until it was outlawed at the turn of the century. The spice trade, in particular cloves, continues to be big business today.
Culture vultures will enjoy Stone Town, Zanzibar's old quarter, an UNESCO World Heritage site. It is a maze of narrow cobbled streets lined with homes, ornate doors, restaurants, hotels, bazaars, mosques, museums and busy markets. Whilst for beach lovers Zanzibar is a paradise. The entire 80 kilometre length of the east coast is bordered with immaculate sandy beaches. Beneath the turquoise waters - a coral reef runs the length of the coast offering fantastic snorkeling and diving, and creating an area of shallow water that is always safe for swimming.
