Zanzibar is an archipelago made up of Zanzibar and Pemba Islands, and several islets. It is located in the Indian Ocean, about 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast. Zanzibar Island is 60 miles long and 20 miles wide, occupying a total area of approximately 650 square miles. It is characterized by beautiful sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs, and the magic of historic Stone Town - said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa. The coral reefs, that surround the east coast, are rich in marine diversity, and make Zanzibar an ideal location for snorkeling and scuba diving. Zanzibar's local people are an incredible mixture of ethnic backgrounds, indicative of her colourful history. Islam is the dominant religion, and practiced by most Zanzibaris, although there are also followers of Christianity and Hinduism. Zanzibaris speak Swahili, a language which is spoken extensively in East Africa. Many believe, that the purest form is spoken in Zanzibar as it is the birth place of the language. Fishing and agriculture are the main economic activities of the local people.
Stone Town, deservingly a World Heritage Site, is the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar. It is a historic place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses whose original owners vied with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings. This one-upmanship is particularly reflected in the brass-studded, carved, wooden doors - there are more than 500 different examples of this handiwork. You can spend many idle hours and days just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways. As you walk through the town, please remember that Stone Town is very much a real community, where real people live and work. It is not a museum piece or theme park created for tourists, and sensitivity should be shown to the local people.
Nungwi village, a dhow-building capital of Zanzibar, is located on the northern tip of the island and is little more than a collection of beach cottages, a short line of lively outdoor bars and restaurants and a couple of dive schools. Local villagers have built a turtle sanctuary where injured turtles and other marine animals are nursed back to health. Nungwi’s beach is small but it has no seaweed and you can swim at all tides. Right on the beach you find the legendary Cholo bar, the chill out place to visit at night.
