It was only in 1964 that Zanzibar, together with Pemba Island and some other smaller islands, joined with Tanganyika on the mainland to form the United Republic of Tanzania. An island strategically located on the trade routes of the Indian Ocean, has the vibe of a melange of Persian, Arabic, Indian & European cultures. Still raw and rustic, the beaches of Zanzibar have the power to hold you back forever.
For the fans of legendary song-writer, singer – “Queen” Freddie Mercury was born here on the island of Zanzibar as Furrokh Bulsara to a Parsee couple of Indian origin, his museum which once used to be the family’s home is a rather special place to visit.
Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro & diving in Zanzibar, are a great combination for adventure seekers.
