Zanzibar – Island Paradise Excursion
Zanzibar, an autonomous part of Tanzania, is a group of islands located in the Indian Ocean. The two largest islands are Ungoja and Pemba. The main industry is spices, consisting of black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, hence the nickname Spice Islands. Zanzibar hosts cultural mix of Africans, Arabs, Indian, Persians and Europeans.
The people of Zanibar are ethnically diverse and speak Swahili (Kiswahili), which is the official language. Arabic, English, French, and Italian are also spoken due to colonization by the Europeans. Being near to the equator, the islands are warm year-round. The islands feature miles of beaches along the entire eastern coast. Snorkeling, surfing, and just relaxing are favorites of the tourists. You can also go windsurfing, waterskiing, parasailing, jet-skiing, kiteboarding and wakeboarding (at your own expense). Spend a day with us at sea on a Dhow Safari to sightsee Kenya’s coastline. Let’s go to smell and taste the spices…cumin, curry, ginger, nutmeg, turmeric, and pepper in its original form. Join us to hear the real Zanzibar Taarab music. Let’s walk back in time to the ancient city of Stone Town to experience the winding alleys, the Livingston house, Arab houses, archaic mosques, and bazaars filled with accessories, bags, clothes, jewelry, and locally made crafts. In the food market you will find seafood kebabs, fried potatoes, grilled meats, salads, and chapati bread. We can take a 20-minute boat trip to see the giant tortoise, some are about 300 years old. The accommodations are deluxe, so don’t think you will not be in the lap of luxury.
