Zanzibar is an archipelago made up of Zanzibar and Pemba islands and several islets. It is located in the Indian Ocean about 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast and 6 degrees south of the equator. Zanzibar Island (know locally as Unguja, but as Zanzibar internationally) is 60 miles long and 20 miles wide, occupying a total area of approximately 650 square miles. It is characterised by beautiful sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs and the magic of historic Stone Town - said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa.

Wildlife
There are no large wild animals in Zanzibar, and monkeys, bush pigs and small antelopes inhabit forest areas such as Jozani. Civets - and rumour has it, the elusive Zanzibar leopard and various species of mongoose can also be found on the island. There is a wide variety of bird life and a large number of butterflies in rural areas. The coral reefs that surround the east coast are rich in marine diversity and make Zanzibar an ideal location for snorkelling and scuba diving.

People, Religion and Language
Zanzibar's local people are an incredible mixture of ethnic backgrounds, indicative of her colourful history. Islam is the dominant religion, and practiced by most Zanzibaris, although there are also followers of Christianity and Hinduism. Population is estimated at 800,000, with the largest concentration being Zanzibar City, which has approximately 100,000 inhabitants. Zanzibaris speak Swahili (known locally as Kiswahili), a language that is spoken extensively in East Africa. Many believe that the purest form is spoken in Zanzibar, as it is the birthplace of the language.

Economy
Fishing and agriculture are the main economic activities of the local people. Zanzibar was once the world's largest produces of cloves, and her economy was based on large incomes thus derived. Although cloves are still a major export along with coconut products and spices, tourism has been earmarked as the primary foreign exchange earner with more visitors coming to Zanzibar every year. At this stage, the numbers are still low (less than 100,000 annually) and the potential for tourism is relatively untapped. We are dedicated to sensitive tourism that benefits both visitors and the community, without losing the romance and magic that is Zanzibar.
