Island life rooted in Swahili tradition

With a nickname like ‘Spice Island’, is it any wonder this tropical archipelago is the go-to for culture and relaxation? Set off the East Coast of Africa, Zanzibar treats its visitors to palm-lined white sands lapped by the warm Indian Ocean, and a UNESCO-listed old town where traditional Swahili culture is still alive and thriving. If you can tear yourself away from the luxury resorts you’ll find time-honoured fishing villages and a charming national park inhabited by red colobus monkeys.
