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.

For reviews, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Zanzibar City route planning site.

Cairo, Egypt to Zanzibar City is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Cairo to Zanzibar City due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Cairo, expect little chillier days and about the same nights in Zanzibar City, ranging from highs of 35°C to lows of 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
