Zanzibar Flights Guide
Tanzania is the proud owner of the archipelago of Zanzibar, which sits just an hour and a half boat ride off its coast. Long an island of small fishing villages, today it offers a quaint atmosphere to where one can escape from the commotion of the mainland.
Ferries from Dar es Salaam arrive to the capital of Stone Town. The island was part of the British Empire for a time, hence the English names. The whole town is a dedicated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its architectural charm has been the canvas of many influences, from Arab to Swahili, European and Indian. The House of Wonders is the focal point of town. Once the home of the sultan, today it provides a lovely museum that describes Swahili and Zanzibar heritage and their intermingling. The Palace Museum also occupies a magnificent building once catering to the royal family, and its museum describes the latter kin. Elsewhere in town one finds the Old Fort, Persian Baths, the cathedral and the enticing Forodhani Gardens. The island is also home to a resort area in the north, and relaxing beaches in Kendwa and Paje. Matemwe is a traditional fishing village that has not changed much in all its centuries of existence, while the Jozani Forest is perfect for naturalists and lovers of monkeys, which are endemic.
Abeid Amani Karume International Airport serves the island for those who prefer a direct flight rather than coming on a ferry from Dar es Salaam. Blue Panorama Airlines, Jetairfly, Alitalia, Neos, Mango, Condor and ZanAir are some of the carriers.
