Life on Spice Island
Affectionately known as Spice Island, Zanzibar is a tropical Island lying off the east coast of Africa.
The Island gets its moniker from one of it's oldest and largest trades, spices. They grow all manner of tropical spices - pepper, nutmeg, ginger, to name a few.
Daily life for a tourist consists of everything a tropical island could provide - swimming, snorkelling, diving, sailing, lazing.
For a local daily life is very different. For those supporting the tourist trade it is about supplying food and adventures. For those supporting the rest of the local community of Zanzibar it is about providing food, shelter and work.
A tropical paradise that has not forgotten nor hides its roots.
