Zanzibar cultures became more diverse in its range, more unique in its expression. Zanzibar is the birthplace of Swahili, a lingua franca forged from global dialects, upon which legends were carried, trade routes opened, and a Sultan’s empire prospered. It is here that the Africa Culture blended with other cultures mainly Persian, Arabic, and Indian to forms Swahili Culture.

Today the romance, the splendour and legends of the past are still vibrantly alive, traditional sailing dhows, carved wooden and doors, chests, the scent of the clove and the smile of the hospitable people welcomes you to Zanzibar.
