Zanzibar City

— 3 nights
Discover a myriad of attractions in Zanzibar City, like its World Heritage-listed historic core, charming beach villages, and the modern neighborhood of Ng'ambo.
Shop till you drop at Darajani Bazaar and Memories of Zanzibar. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at House of Wonders (Beit-el-Ajaib) and Hamamni Persian Baths. Change things up with these side-trips from Zanzibar City: Nungwi (Nungwi Beach & Scuba & Snorkeling). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Christ Church Cathedral, stroll around Forodhani Gardens, and stop by Zanzibar Curio Shop.
