“For generations the name Zanzibar has captured the imagination of people as a far away, exotic and legendary island located in the Indian Ocean near the East African coast.
Following the west winds, Persian, Arabic and Indian traders sailed to Zanzibar and went back fully loaded when the winds turned east. Spices and slave trading made the island rich and famous.
People from different continents brought their cultures and religions and created the unique and fascinating blend that can be found on the spice island today. During a walk through the narrow and winding streets of Stone Town the history of the spice island flames up into the imagination again.”
