Zanzibar is a Tanzanian group of islands off the coast of East Africa. On its main island, Unguja, familiarly called Zanzibar, is Stone Town, a historic trade centre with Swahili and Islamic influences. Its winding lanes present minarets, carved doorways, and 19th-century landmarks such as the House of Wonders, a former sultan’s palace. The northern villages Nungwi and Kendwa have wide beaches lined with hotels and resorts.
Pemba Island is also known as one of Tanzania’s most beautiful island attractions. The island is a laidback tropical paradise. With a dreamy coastline, amazing diving opportunities and diving resorts, historic fishing villages, Pemba Island provides a tranquil, somewhat rustic beach escape for travellers alike.
