Ultimate Zanzibar

With a preposterously beautiful tropical coastline, a wealth of Swahili history and great food, this dreamlike island off the coast of Tanzania is quite the destination. This guide will help distil its highlights.


Anglican Cathedral (; New Mkunazini Rd)

The tall spire and grey-yellow walls of this cathedral dominate the surrounding streets in this part of capital Stone Town, while the dark-wood pews and stainedglass windows will remind British visitors of churches at home. This was the first Anglican cathedral in East Africa, constructed on the site of the former slave market after slavery was officially abolished.

Jozani Sea Turtle Sanctuary (00 255 777 443 008; Uwemajo, Swahili Wonders)

The aim of this community initiative is to help locals benefit from tourism and conservation. In three large pools, you can see sea turtles and fish-farming sideby-side. It’s also a great place to see giant tortoises, brought from Chunguu Island as a gift from the President of Zanzibar.

Kizimkazi Old Mosque (Kizimkazi Dimbani)
