Stone Town is the name given to the old quarter of Zanzibar City, which is the capital of Unguja Island, the largest island in the Zanzibar Archipelago. Also known as ‘Spice Island’, this Indian Ocean gem is home to a huge diversity of plant life, including clove trees, as the archipelago was once the world’s largest producer of cloves. A stay in Stone Town’s medina with its coral houses and sculpted doors is like a trip back in time. The Old Arab Fort, the House of Wonders and the Sultan’s Palace, along with the people and the cuisine, all bear witness to the rich history of a typical port city in East Africa.
A trip to Stone Town offers a alternative perspective on Tanzania, where you can combine a cultural stroll with relaxation under the coconut trees.
