Zanzibar Archipelago

Trip Planner Africa  /  Tanzania  /  Zanzibar Archipelago
Adventure Beaches Nature
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. Plan your visit to Zanzibar Archipelago and other destinations in Tanzania using our Tanzania trip itinerary planner.
