Zanzibar Cruises

An Introduction to Cruising in Zanzibar

Zanzibar is comprised by a series of small islands and two larger ones namely Pemba and Unguja. The latter being the area that most people refer to as Zanzibar itself. Zanzibar is not far off from beautiful and more well-known islands like Mauritius. You can enjoy the same magical experiences there at a fraction of the cost as the exchange rate is so low in comparison to dollars and the people have very low living standards in general. Zanzibar is however, a great and wondrous treasure that has the potential to provide any traveler with the experience of a lifetime. The country has an extremely rich history dating back some 20,000 years and is becoming a more popular destination due to its affordability but also its value.

Zanzibar is also known as the Spice Islands and has a very aromatic and ancient atmosphere with strong remnants of Persian yesteryears. Well known for its beaches, Zanzibar has that magnificent clear and translucent water that is impossible to stay out of.
