Overall Guide : I travelled to Zanzibar in 2009. The place is amazing. White sandy beaches, and crystal clear turquoise waters. The people are warm and friendly and are willing to help in whatever way they can. Apart from the beaches, there are... more hundreds of activities to choose from. Go to the spice farms, take a stroll in the creepy mangrove swamps, swim with the dolphins, check out the huge tortoises at prison island and visit stone town to find out the history of this beautiful place. Its like the whole world has moved forward, leaving Zanzibar back in time. To sum it up, i feel if there's a paradise on earth, it is ZANZIBAR!!!
Not to be missed Stone Town , Prison Island

Overall Guide : As a solo female traveler I found it to be a fantastic holiday destination. I felt safe, was able to easily get around and actively enjoyed spending time with local residents. The people are amazing! Incredibly helpful, fantastic tourist guides... more and so much fun to hang out with. I did hire a guide but actually didn't even need him after the second day becalocals I had made friends with were so helpful and willing to show me the local treasures. Zanzibar is a must stop destination on your bucket list if you enjoy beautiful surroundings, friendly locals and excellent food.

Overall Guide : Probably the best thing to visit in Zanzibar is the Makusurani, that once used to be the royal cemetary. Zanzibar is also full of mosques, because of the preponderance of the islam among the local religions : the main mosque... more is the Ijumaa, also known as Misikiti Mkubwa.
