The spice island jewel of the Indian ocean
Zanzibar Island (Unguja) is located a few degrees South of the equator, 39km East of the quiet Republic of Tanzania – a short, direct flight with a carrier or charter, or via connecting flight from a major travel hub. The island is a veritable all-year paradise – from its April monsoon season to its June-October golden window, before warming up again towards year-end. On its Western shores is its capital, Stone Town, a place rich in influence. Historically a fishing and agricultural hub, Zanzibar’s true gift is its cashmere soft sand and bright cobalt waters. Beyond the sand and sea, Zanzibar’s romantic spice plantations offer equal natural wonder.
