Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Zanzibar

Have you ever considered visiting Zanzibar? It's an absolute must-see destination! The crystal-clear waters, stunning beaches, and vibrant culture make it the perfect place to escape and unwind. You won't regret adding Zanzibar to your travel bucket list!

Find out why Zanzibar is rated as one of the best holiday destinations in Africa.

1. The lovely beaches of Zanzibar

Beautiful beaches, pleasant weather, and warm tropical waters may all be found in Zanzibar. The clean, warm waters, coral reefs, and abundance of marine life in this archipelago make it an excellent location for underwater activities like snorkeling and scuba diving. Zanzibar is one of the best places in the world to spend your days lounging on the sand. Zanzibar is not only the ideal place to relax on the beach, but it also has plenty to offer nature enthusiasts, culture vultures, and explorers.


2. Its distinct history, heritage, and architecture

Semi-autonomous Zanzibar is underdeveloped. Arabic, Indian, African, Persian, and European influences show the colorful history and heritage. Its unique history makes the island alive. The mosques and homes in Stone Town's ancient district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are a fascinating blend of architectural styles.

The House of Wonders, the old Turkish Baths, busy bazaars, market booths, and stores all tell the narrative of a long and violent history. Zanzibar's lifestyle, furniture, cloth, jewelry, and crafts are all Islamic. Zanzibar doors are carved teak. Taarab, a mix of classical Swahili poetry, percussion, and rhythm with Middle Eastern, African, Indian, and Western elements, is best experienced at the Dhow Countries Music Academy.


3. The exotic spices of Zanzibar

Zanzibar Island is commonly referred to as the Spice Island because of the abundance of fragrant spices grown and processed there, including cloves, turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemongrass, and black pepper. Discover the medicinal and culinary benefits of these plants by seeing a spice farm. Follow your nose to the market and try some of the amazing street cuisine or locally produced delicacies to see what all the fuss is about.


4. Excellent diving conditions (a heaven for swimmers).

Zanzibar is known for having some of the best diving in the world. It's no surprise that divers and snorkelers go there to experience the sea floor. Dives to the reef can be done either from the shore or from a boat. Zanzibar vacations aren't complete without a scuba diving island hopping adventure.

Scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, and sailing on traditional wooden dhows are just a few of the many water sports available to visitors in Zanzibar. You can try windsurfing, kiteboarding, waterskiing, or island hopping, or you can swim and snorkel to see tropical fish among the coral.


5. Jozani Forest's red colobus monkeys, butterflies, Kizimkazi dolphins, tortoises, and turtles.

Zanzibar's Jozani Forest Reserve, home to Africa's rarest primates, Red Colobus Monkeys, is another reason to visit. With conservation efforts, these island-endemic monkeys are rebounding from extinction. In Jozani's mature forests, you can view hundreds of butterflies, birds, and unique plants and animals in the island's only National Park.

Zanzibar Butterfly Centre, 1km from Jozani Forest Park, is an environmental community project that trains locals to sustainably raise butterflies. Running one of Africa's largest butterfly sanctuaries and exporting butterfly pupae generates revenue for people and preserves the forest. A knowledgeable guide may provide an interactive tour of the lush, netted gardens where hundreds of native Zanzibar butterflies fly freely.

Dolphin-watching in Kizimkazi on Zanzibar's south shore is popular. You can witness schools of bottle-nosed or humpback dolphins by taking a short boat ride from the settlement. Wild dolphins in Zanzibar's beautiful waters are amazing. Visit Kizimkazi's Miza Miza Caves and East Africa's oldest mosque.

Zanzibar's turtle conservation center is Mnarani Natural Aquarium on the island's northern edge. The aquarium protects hatchlings and injured Hawksbill and Green turtles surrounding a tidal pool. This community conservation effort educates communities and fishermen about the benefits of safeguarding these aquatic species.

Prison Island, 5.6 miles off Stone Town, was a slave jail. The endangered Aldabra giant tortoise now lives on the island. Poachers threaten these IUCN Red List-listed giant tortoises. From four Seychelles government-gifted tortoises in 1919, this population has flourished.
