Zanzibar Archipelago

3.7
A chain of islands in the Indian Ocean, the Zanzibar Archipelago has long served as home to a fascinating local culture. A vacation on the Zanzibar Archipelago will steep you in a bygone era where Persian influences mingle with traces of Swahili and Indian, and residents chat or play bao, a traditional board game, against a backdrop of Indo-Arabian architecture. Tour Zanzibar Archipelago's farming communities and fishing villages to mingle with the locals, taste the local seafood cuisine, and rest on sandy beaches in shades of palm trees. Zanzibar Archipelago is in Tanzania. Our Tanzania holiday maker website combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
