About Zanzibar

Zanzibar, Unguja, The capital, Stone Town, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 and is an eclectic mix of cultures, architecture and languages. What was once a small fishing village is now a thriving town with an extraordinary history and past. The impact of the different cultures can be seen on the buildings and in the faces of the locals while walking around Stone Town. Coral and stone houses boast imposing wooden Zanzibar doors, set with brass studs to defend against charging elephants, intricately carved with scripts from the Qu’ran. Indian houses have courtyards behind the shop fronts and delicate and beautiful carved balconies. Arab homes are characterized by their white washed walls, flat terraces and small windows. The reason for this window style is solely to preserve the modesty of the women. Zanzibar does not have tribes. Local traditions are a fusion of different ethnic groups that have settled on the island. Although Zanzibar benefits from Tourism, the majority of the population still makes their living from subsistence farming and fishing. Zanzibar is a unique destination filled with history and character, beautiful beaches and wonderful people.

History

The islands were likely to have been visited at an even earlier date by traders and sailors from Arabia. From around the 8th century Shirazi traders from Persia also began to make their way to East Africa, where they established settlements on Pemba and probably also at Zanzibar’s Unguja Ukuu. Zanzibar became a powerful city-state, supplying slaves, gold, ivory and wood to places as distant as Indian and Asia, while importing spices, glassware and textiles. Along with the trade from the east came Islam and the Arabic architecture that still characterizes the archipelago today. The Sultan of Zanzibar controlled a substantial portion of the East African coast, known as Zanj, as well as extensive inland trading routes. Over time the abolition of the slave trade came about when the British Empire took control. In 1890 Zanzibar became a British protectorate. The death of one sultan and the succession of another of whom the British did not approve, led to the Anglo-Zanzibar War, also known as The Shortest War in History. The islands gained independence from Britain in December 1963 as a constitutional monarchy. A month later, the bloody Zanzibar Revolution caused the death of many Arabs and Indians, and even thousands more expelled and expropriated. This led to the founding of the Republic of Zanzibar and Pemba. That April, the Republic merged with the mainland Tanganyika, or more accurately, was subsumed into Tanzania, of which Zanzibar still remains a semi-autonomous region. it has been influenced by many different cultures, including the great Orientals like China, Arabia and Persia. The history and cultures have also been strongly influenced by both traders and invaders over the centuries, from the Portuguese and Omani Arabs to the English, thus creating a very unique history and diverse culture. Another major trade good was ivory from the tusks of elephants killed in mainland Africa. The third pillar of the economy was slaves, giving Zanzibar an important place in the Arab slave trade.

Cultural Considerations

Zanzibar is a very religious country and consists 95% of Muslim people. To show respect towards Zanzibar’s culture, visitors are requested to dress modestly and refrain from public displays of affection. When walking through towns or villages, women should wear clothes that cover their shoulders and knees and men should not walk bare-chested or in swimming trunks. Swimwear is acceptable on the beaches but topless sunbathing is not. Visitors are advised not to take pictures of people unless you’ve asked their permission. During the fast of Ramadan, it is considered the height of bad manners to drink and eat in public places or while walking down the street. Non-Muslims should also not enter Mosques unless specifically invited to do so.

Tips for planning and for saving for your Zanzibar holiday:

Zanzibar is truly a great destination to consider for your next tropical Island beach holiday. Not only is it much more affordable compared to other Island destinations, it will take you less than 3,5 hours to fly to Zanzibar, if opting for the direct flights departing from Johannesburg.  While it is more affordable than most destination, it is not cheap and planning is needed to make your dream of a relaxing holiday become a reality.

Open a holiday savings account, just like budgeting for other expenses, is part of any well-thought-out expense budget. You need to start planning as far in advance as possible.

How to get your hands on those elusive special packages.

Understand that if holiday times are the only time you can travel bookings must be made well in advance (around 6 months if possible).
