Zanzibar Town, commonly known as Stonetown, is situated on the West Coast of Zanzibar. Its ancient part, built out of stone has been declared Cultural World Heritage by the UNESCO in 2000.

Zanzibar has a long history of explorers and traders, serving as a base to Livingstone to discover the African continent, as slave market for the Arabian Peninsula, or as a capital for the Sultanate of Oman.

To stroll and get lost in the narrow streets of Stonetown is the best way to discover it, and try to have a glimpse in its multiplicity. Visit the lively market, the quiet streets with daily life, observe the beautifully carved doors of Indian influence, and eat at Forodhani Garden at night!

From here, you can make several excursions, visiting the town with a guide, going to Changuu Island for the giants tortoises, or to Jozani Forest. It is also the base for a day of Safari Blue, with a traditionnal dhow, visiting mangroves, snorkeling in a marine reserve, and having a beautiful swahili lunch on the beach.

Set by the sea, it also offers beautiful sunsets every evening!
