Zanzibar is much more than just a beach-lovers paradise – the island’s history goes back many centuries. Its heyday came in the early 19th century when the Sultan of Muscat moved his court to Zanzibar. Spice cultivation was developed (particularly the clove tree), and the slave trade was at its height – Zanzibar became the most important town in East Africa. With traders from Persia, Arabia and India visiting the island it became rich and famous with a wonderful mix of cultures and religions – creating the unique and fascinating blend that can be found on the spice island today.
