Zanzibar Stone Town

The ancient trading port of Stone Town on Zanzibar’s west coast is a historical treasure house: churches, museums, forts and ancient slave chambers provide a fascinating insight into a lost world of Omani Sultans and European explorers, whilst the bustling markets and narrow alleyways are fascinating.
