ABOUT ZANZIBAR ISLAND
Branded as the Spice Island, the lovely island of Zanzibar on Africa’s east coast is teeming with culture and history, apparently at odds with its peaceful geography of white-sand beaches with palms influential lazily in the sea breeze. Collected this makes Zanzibar a tremendous place to discover as well as a dream to relax and unwind. Zanzibar is the semi-autonomous part of Tanzania in East Africa. It is self-possessed of the Zanzibar Archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 25–50 kilometres (16–31 mi) off the coast of the mainland, and contains many small islands and two large ones: Unguja (the main island, referred to informally as Zanzibar) and Pemba. The capital is Zanzibar City, placed on the island of Unguja. Its historic center is Stone Town, which is a World Heritage Site.
