Africa / Zanzibar

The archipelago of Zanzibar is the natural place to reflect, the lure of the legendary Spice Island hard to resist. A bohemian ambience and mellow pace of life pervades Stone Town. Labyrinthine alleys lead to bustling bazaars, the stalls brimming with exotic antiques and hand carved furniture. Fascinating architecture creates a magnificent backdrop – extravagantly decorated grand Arab houses and jagged minarets soaring above palaces. Hints of India and the East. Beyond the urban maze, powdery white palm-fringed beaches call, lapped by water imbued with ethereal shades of turquoise. Heart-stirring landscapes in every place.
