The Zanzibar region
Zanzibar is an exotic tropical Island, set in the Indian Ocean, about 25 miles off the coast of Tanzania. It has a superb sunny climate with no hurricanes or other hazards. The temperature is stable at about 30 degrees centigrade through the year, evenings are warm and balmy.
There are two rainy seasons, one in April/May the other in November – the rest of the year is dry and sunny.
The island has a fascinating history based on trade in spices and slaves and an exotic mixture of Arab, Indian and Swahili culture. Zanzibar Stone Town is a World Heritage site.
The island offers many places to visit including local fishing villages, forests, spice tours, historic sites and abundant snorkelling, wind and kite surfing, sailing, fishing, snorkelling and diving. Zanzibar is reputed to have some of the best diving in the world with abundant marine life, good visibility and a water temperature of about 27 degrees C all year round.
The local language is Swahili but most people speak English. Italian and French are also spoken.
There are plenty of ATM machines and banks in Stone Town.
Paje has one of the best beaches in Zanzibar with palm fringed, white powdery sand and a tropical lagoon enclosed by a coral reef about a kilometre away. You can walk on the reef and see local spear fishermen hunting squid, octopus and brightly coloured reef fish. There are no sea urchins and no strong currents at high tide.
The beach is gently sloping so it is perfect for swimming for up to 12 hours each day. There are several local hotels and restaurants along the beach serving food, cocktails, beers and freshly squeezed juice all day long.
The people are friendly and charming and there a local shops, a post office, a little supermarket and lots of places with free wi fi internet access. The rare red colobus monkey as well as tropical and mangrove forests can be seen at Jozani National Park, only ten minutes away. Google Paje, Zanzibar and see what you find.
