Zanzibar Island, locally known as Unguja, is steeped in history. It is characterised by beautiful, white, sandy beaches edged with coral reefs, forests, and the magic historic Stone Town - possibly the only ancient town in East Africa that is still functioning. The island is 60 miles long, 20 miles wide, and occupies a total area of approximately 650 square miles.
