During my #wanderlust tours and adventures in the #wild #nature of #beautiful #Eastern #African #Islands Tanzania, I had a heritage tour of the Stone Town in Zanzibar. The people we came across were so friendly in Zanzibar. I must recommend you all to the ‘Stone Town Tour’ if you are planning to visit Zanzibar in the future. It is one of the top 10 tours of this beautiful island.

According to Wikipedia ( ), Stone Town of Zanzibar (Arabic: مدينة زنجبار الحجرية‎), also known as Mji Mkongwe (Swahili for “old town”), is the old part of Zanzibar City, the main city of Zanzibar, in Tanzania. The newer portion of the city is known as Ng’ambo, Swahili for ‘the other side’. Stone Town is located on the western coast of Unguja, the main island of the Zanzibar Archipelago. Former capital of the Zanzibar Sultanate, and flourishing centre of the spice trade as well as the slave trade in the 19th century, it retained its importance as the main city of Zanzibar during the period of the British protectorate. When Tanganyika and Zanzibar joined each other to form the United Republic of Tanzania, Zanzibar kept a semi-autonomous status, with Stone Town as its local government seat.

Stone Town is a city of prominent historical and artistic importance in East Africa. Its architecture, mostly dating back to the 19th century, reflects the diverse influences underlying the Swahili culture, giving a unique mixture of Arab, Persian, Indian and European elements. For this reason, the town was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.

Due to its heritage, Stone Town is also a major visitor attraction in Tanzania, and a large part of its economy depends on tourism-related activities. This island has a rich #multicultural #history of around 20,000 years. History properly starts when the islands became a base for traders voyaging between the #African Great Lakes, the #Arabian peninsula, and the Indian subcontinent. Unguja offered a protected and defensible harbor, so although the #archipelago had few products of value, #Omanis and #Yemenis settled in what became Zanzibar City (Stone Town) as a convenient point from which to trade with towns on the #Swahili #Coast.

Major languages spoken in Zanzibar are Swahili, Arabic, #English and an Indian language Gujarati (quite surprisingly). Their food and preferences are similar to Indian coastal cuisines. Both US #dollars and Tanzanian #shillings are widely accepted #currencies in this island. This is a hot spot #tropical #tourist #destination for Arabs from the gulf region and Europeans especially Italians as the flights are directly connected for convenience. The #climate is very congenial almost throughout the year; however, it is recommended to avoid the tropical rainy season called monsoon.

It is a #must visit destination for all tropical wanderers who are driven by their wanderlust, travelers, #TravelBloggers and #TravelVloggers. Also an apt destination for wide range of tourists such as backpackers and budget travellers, solo travelers. And definitely a paradise for #honeymooners. Moreover, advisable for #elderly #people and/or couples as well for its very #relaxing, #refreshing and #rejuvenating.

This is a platform for the bohemian souls with immense wanderlust. Traveling with positive vibes leads to spirituality. Exploring an unknown place, knowing people and their cultural values, conversing with good human beings, expressing gratitude and courtesy can not only broaden one’s mindset but also increase wisdom.
