5 must-see places in Zanzibar – Unearthing Unique Treasure

Zanzibar is a tiny little island in East Africa which is just as interesting as it sounds. Packed with a whole load of fun things to see and do visiting this country feels like hitting a jackpot.


The Jozani Forest

Taking a walk through the Jozani forest is one of the many must do's in Zanzibar. It is after all the last sanctuary in the world to house the precious Red Colobus Monkey. So, if you are a nature lover of any sort this place is nothing short of a paradise. The forest is located on the eastern region of the island which also happens to be one of the prettiest places in Zanzibar. There are lots of nature trails in the forest, making it a great place to relax, rejuvenate and appreciate an unspoilt version of mother earth.


Seaweed Forest

Another interesting place to visit in Zanzibar is the seaweed forest. The seaweed Forest is located in Paje and this place is as unusual as it sounds. You can find a whole world of products all made using seaweed and the best part is all products are crafted by the local women in that area. The entire visit offers a lot to learn from. Guest can try out the full tour, witness the seaweed farmers in action and conclude the trip with a glass of seaweed fruit juice. Everything from the edible to the inedible is rather interesting when it is all made using seaweed.


House of Wonders

This is perhaps one of the biggest attractions in all of Zanzibar. Also known as the palace of wonders this is the tallest building in all of the Stone Town and thanks to its location it is a great attraction to explore as a whole. For history buffs, the house of wonders offers an excellent opportunity to learn a little about all the age-old stories behind the Stone Town along with the exhibits and many rooms found here.
