Zanzibar is an autonomous region of Tanzania consisting of an archipelago made of two major islands: Unguja (known informally as Zanzibar) and Pemba. Unguja’s capital Zanzibar City is the site where Stone Town, a World Heritage Site, is located. Zanzibar has the nickname of Spice Islands, as a variety of spice has been grown on them, including such well-known spices as cloves, cinnamom and black pepper. It is also on these islands where you can observe unique species and environments both on land and in the sea.
