The Doors of Stone Town

Twenty five miles from the coast of Tanzania you find the islands of the Zanzibar Archipelago including Unguja, Pemba and Mafia. Because of their past and present exports they are also known as the Spice Islands. Unguja is commonly referred to as Zanzibar and it is home to Stone Town which is the historic part of the capital city. Because of its natural harbor, proximity to Africa and location in the path of the trade winds it started out early on as a center for trade. There is some indication that the Greeks may have visited, but the Persians definitely came and set up a trading base. Later the Portuguese conquered the island and ruled for close to two hundred years before being defeated by the Omani Sultans at the end of the 17th Century.

A wind-up gramophone complete with brass speaker playing Cole Porter, a table set with drinks and glasses and the sun beginning to set. It is no wonder that Sundowners are a ritual on all the best safaris.
