Zanzibar Attractions And Landmarks Guide
Zanzibar, the Spice Island and the origin of the "Zan" in Tanzania, lies off the coast of mainland Tanzania and is often combined with safaris in that East African nation. With its Swahili culture, mixing African and Arabic influences, Zanzibar is always intriguing. In Stone Town, the old city, narrow winding cobble-stoned alleyways are lined with stone houses and shops selling exotic spices. Tours of the island usually include stops to smell the fragrant herbs and visits to the island's white-sand Indian Ocean beaches.
