Zanzibar Archipelago

3.7
Beaches · Scuba & Snorkeling · Islands
A chain of islands in the Indian Ocean, the Zanzibar Archipelago has long served as home to a fascinating local culture. A vacation on the Zanzibar Archipelago will steep you in a bygone era where Persian influences mingle with traces of Swahili and Indian, and residents chat or play bao, a traditional board game, against a backdrop of Indo-Arabian architecture. Tour Zanzibar Archipelago's farming communities and fishing villages to mingle with the locals, taste the local seafood cuisine, and rest on sandy beaches in shades of palm trees. Add Zanzibar Archipelago and other destinations to your itinerary using our Tanzania trip itinerary builder site, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
