The Zanzibar Archipelago consists of different, exotic, and serene islands located in the Indian Ocean. Zanzibar (also known as Unjuga) is one of the largest islands in the Archipelago. When in Tanzania, visiting Zanzibar is a must, not only for its surreal, white sandy beaches but also because of the culture and history entwined in the city.


Before we help you plan your trip to Zanzibar, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. The Government of Zanzibar has issued a Code of Conduct for tourists to protect the city’s culture and heritage. Some of the significant points from the code of conduct include:


  1. Wear appropriate clothing – shoulders and knees should be covered
  2. Do not take any seashells or any other natural resource
  3. Do not talk to the children if their parents are not present and do not offer them money or anything else without their parents’ consent
  4. Never take pictures of locals without consent


Let us delve into the beauty of Zanzibar.

Stone Town

Stone Town is enriched with Swahili tradition, and it is the perfect place to start your Zanzibar adventure. Stone Town is home to beautiful architecture and historic buildings. Apart from the unique architecture and cultural décor, Stone Town is also the perfect place to shop for beautiful accessories, traditional dresses, handicrafts, and so much more. After all the shopping, many fabulous restaurants serve local delicacies if you are hungry. We also recommend taking a guided walking tour to learn about the history of Stone Town. Before your day ends, make sure to stop by the Old Slaves Market.
