Port Description

Zanzibar, Tanzania

Zanzibar, the Spice Island, is made up of the likes of nutmeg, clove, and vanilla. These aromatic spices are grown on island plantations, and can be sampled in the Central Market, a sensory swirl of Swahili culture. Arabic mansions dot the landscape amidst the scatterings of ancient Islamic ruins overlooking the green-blue sea. The clear East African waters are the staging grounds for dolphin safaris. In the Jozani Forest, safaris of a different sort reveal endangered and rare animal species.
