Close to paradise on Zanzibar

Zanzibar easily makes the mind fly to exotic travel and island atmosphere. Never have I stepped on such white sandy beaches, swam in such a turquoise blue sea and stimulated my senses as much as on gorgeous Zanzibar. Residing in Dar es Salaam Tanzania in two years I have visited this exotic gem twelve times and am thrilled with the many sights of the islands. 

Zanzibar consists of the two islands Pemba and Unguja, which are close together in The Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania. Unguja is the most visited and known of the two islands and attracts tourists from all over the world. And for good reason.

Here are my seven favorite places you should experience.
