Discover a myriad of attractions in Zanzibar City, like its World Heritage-listed historic core, charming beach villages, and the modern neighborhood of Ng'ambo. The architectural influences and traditions of Moors, Indians, and Arabs mingle with an African sensibility in the old town, where you can visit numerous museums, monuments, and the last slave market in the world. After sightseeing in Zanzibar City, go to the village beach resorts to take advantage of some of Africa's most visited sands. To plan Tanzania vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
