Zanzibar - Trips With Debs

What to

Expect

The Tanzanian archipelago is sat off the eastern coast of Africa. Comprising of a string of islands with white sandy beaches and gleaming azure waters, Zanzibar is a true imagery of tropical paradise and a perfect destination for water enthusiasts to kayak, parasail, snorkel, fish or take a cruise on a traditional dhow.

Take a wonder into Zanzibar town and walk through the cobbled narrow alleys of historic Stone Town where you’ll see the mix of Islamic and East African Swahili cultures in the architecture, ancient buildings decorated with balconies and colossal carved doors.
