The Zanzibar Archipelago lies off the coast of Tanzania, under an equatorial sun, in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. It is made up of over 50 islands, of which Zanzibar is the largest boasting some of the best and most beautiful beaches in the world, interspersed with picturesque fishing villages.
Equally beautiful Pemba Island lies to the north of Zanzibar and Mafia Island, with its sensational diving, lies to the south alongside other tiny coral atolls with creepers and turtle nests waiting to be explored.
Monsoon winds from Persia have bought traders from all over the world to these Islands for centuries offering an incredible mixture of ethnic backgrounds, indicative of their colourful history.
