Description:

Zanzibar, that land of allure. The name alone conjures images of mystery, the aromas of spices and the charm of the humble dhow. Zanzibar also boasts some of East Africa’s most glorious and unspoiled coastlines. It speaks of the romance of lazy languid days spent soaking the sun on palm-lined beaches and taking to warm tropical azure waters to dive and snorkel. But beaches are not all Zanzibar has to offer. The Insider’s Guide takes you on a journey through an archipelago that has one of the most vibrant economies in the region and is home to a thriving arts and cultural scene. The Insider’s Guide also gives you invaluable insight into the life of the Zanzibari people and the Swahili culture. It offers practical details on the various accommodation options and great shops in Stone Town, and wonderful insider tips on where to find the best arts, crafts, festivals and music on your travels.
