Zanzibar holidays

The very name Zanzibar conjures up exotic and romantic images. There are two main islands making up the Zanzibar archipelago – Unguja and Pemba, plus numerous smaller islands and islets. Zanzibar Town is situated on Unguja Island but Unguja Island is more commonly referred to as Zanzibar. Zanzibar is perhaps most famous for once being the home of the slave trade, and an important trading post for spices and cloves. Cloves remain the most important export of the islands, while tourism is now the largest source of foreign currency.
