Zanzibar Island is known as Africa's tropical paradise, offering the world's most beautiful beaches. Here, you find miles and miles of white sandy beaches dotted with palm trees, surrounded by the clear azure water of the Indian Ocean.
n 1964, Tanganyika and Zanzibar joined each other to form the United Republic of Tanzania; Zanzibar retained a semi-autonomous status, with Stone Town as its capital. The name “Stone Town” comes from the reddish coral stone that is used as a main construction material for its buildings
Zanzibari people are an ethnic mixture of many different backgrounds, including Persian, Arab and African. While Zanzibar is over 90% Muslim (mainly Sunni but including many minorities as well), there are also different Christians, Hindus and other, smaller religions represented on the island
