Zanzibar Tanzania. For hundreds of years, traders and travelers have marveled about Zanzibar’s intoxicating aroma of spices, its beautiful beaches, and the bustle of its Moorish capital, Stone Town. Its name alone – as evocative as Timbuktu, Casablanca, or Kilimanjaro – is alluring enough for many to dream of visiting. Just a short hop across the water from mainland Tanzania – of which Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous part.
