Make stops at top Zanzibar attractions including the Mkunazini Old Anglican Church, Darajani Historical Market and the Forodhani Garden in the Heart of Stone Town. Visit classic sites around Zanzibar’s historic center like the Mercury’s House, the Old Fort and Piazza Victoria Gardens, as well as countless off-the-beaten-path treasures.
