Stone Town

Islands · Gardens · Beaches
World Heritage Site status, as well as a bustling party atmosphere, help to put Stone Town at the top of your list for a Tanzania holiday. The seaside trading town was once the East African center for trade in ivory, gold, and slaves. Houses, shops, and bazaars fill the maze of narrow streets that make up the city, which showcases a mixture of African, Arab, Indian, and European architectural elements. In the meantime, 19th-century forts, museums, and houses of prominent historical figures pay tribute to the history of East Africa and serve as some of the tourist attractions here. Visitors today can take in a local football game, go on a dolphin safari, or book a sunset cruise for things to do. The town comes alive as the sun sets; locals commonly gather at the local garden for barbeques. In the build up to your vacation in Stone Town, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Tanzania trip planner.
