Zanzibar cultureThe African Spice Islands

Zanzibar has two main islands, Unguja (Zanzibar island) and Pemba. Zanzibar is an autonomous part of Tanzania.

Zanzibarians themselves are a mixture of these visitors and the native swahili people. This cultural hotpot is known for it’s gorgeous beaches, spice farms and it’s Arabic influenced historical city, Stone Town. The history also contains a darker era, because Zanzibar used to be the biggest slave trader in East-Africa.
