About Zanzibar

Zanzibar is an autonomous administrative division of Tanzania, composed of many small islands and two large ones, Pemba Island and Unguja. It is actually Unguja that is internationally known as Zanzibar. It is one of the top tourism destinations of the Indian Ocean, known for coastal tourism, terrestrial wildlife, dhow cruising and spice tours. Incidentally, the tourism industry brings the most income to the islands, even above its lucrative agricultural exports. It is believed that people have lived in Zanzibar for 20,000 years.

  • The Rock Literally set upon a rock jutting out from the turquoise waters, The Rock is arguably the most charming restaurant in Zanzibar and is one of the most legendary dining experiences that Zanzibar has to offer. It has only 12 tables and the house fills up quickly. So, we suggest you make an early reservation to savor fresh seafood in an exotic ambiance.

  • House of Spices The House of Spices is a reminder of Zanzibar’s long-enduring spice industry and one of the most popular eateries in Stone Town. The experience can be summed up as “serving Indian Ocean fare with an Italian flare”.
