Zanzibar from above

21 days on Zanzibar with unforgettable moments. Stone Town, Jambiani, Paje, Matemwe, Kizimkazi and Makunduchi is some of the places featured in this film. Beautiful nature, delicious fruit and smiling openminded people is three of many reasons to go there.

Did you know the shortest war ever recorded by man is the Anglo-Zanzibar War where the British bombarded the Beit al Hukum Palace and after 38 minutes, a ceasefire was called.
