Stone Town

An afternoon strolling through the narrow streets and winding alleys of historic Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar is not to be missed. You'll get lost - everybody does - but don't worry, you'll emerge from the cool, shady lanes into the blinding sunlight of the seafront eventually.

Until then, you'll find something of interest around every corner - perhaps you'll stumble upon the Darajani market, with piles of oranges, tomatoes and baskets of spices and fresh fish. Remember to visit The Old Fort, House of Wonders, The Old Slave market and enjoy the Swahili food in one of the wonderful restaurants.
