Zanzibar Culture

  • Zanzibar Culture

Zanzibar has a unique culture to that of the mainland. It’s history as part of the Sultanate of Oman and later as a part of the British Commonwealth means it is distinct from anything you’ve experienced elsewhere in Tanzania. Swahili, the language spoken in many parts of East Africa, is actually from Zanzibar originally. The language is a fusion of Arabic and the local tongue.

A trip to Zanzibar would not be complete without interacting with the local people and sampling the local flavours. With immigrants from all over the world, you’re in for a culinary and cultural adventure!
