Get to know Zanzibar with Viator

Clear blue waters, powdery white sands, and a lush jungle-filled interior make Zanzibar one of Africa’s most popular tropical beach destinations. The spice trade is alive and well on the Spice Island, which is located in the Indian Ocean; the country's rural areas are home to spice farms, and the local cuisine is extremely flavorful. The UNESCO-listed capital, Stone Town, is a former trading outpost and has a rich and diverse cultural heritage as well as historic architecture.
