Zanzibar is a cluster of tropical islands nestled in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania. The idyllic set of 51 islets was first used as a port for African, Indian, Arabic and Persian traders bartering spices and slaves. Zanzibar has a diverse history that underwent Portuguese, Arabic and British control before its independence in 1963. Today Zanzibar stands to undergo a new transformation, one of both social upliftment together with a mega luxury development and global marketing campaign set to position it firmly on the map as a world leading tropical tourism destination.
Today, the panoramic paradise is one of the top tourist attractions in the Indian Ocean, with each attraction cementing a different chapter in Zanzibar’s multi-cultural past and assorted ownership. Visitors can walk through the sultan’s palace, the ruler over Zanzibar and much of Africa’s Eastern Coast. Labelled one of the World’s Heritage Sites in the year 2000, Stone Town is home to the House of Wonders, so called because it is said to be the first building in Zanzibar with electricity, emanating dancing lights from a distance at night. These are just some of the structures still standing today from the sultanate ruling in the 17th century.
