    Best tour we have experienced. Excellent programme, good accommodation and food. Informative, entertaining, knowledgeable, and very well organised. Everything went like clockwork.

    My family really enjoyed our tailor made trip. It wouldn't have been the same without or excellent guide Salum. He was friendly, funny and full of information. My two young daughters are still asking about him a week later! I would absolutely recommend Zenith Tour for young families as the Zanzibar is the perfect pace, a great mix of downtime and sightseeing.

    Excellent trip. I had a great time. There was nothing I could complain about. Guide was great and was always willing to talk with me, even answer what was probably an endless list of questions. Over 5 days we definitely had a feel for what the country looks like.

    Already in the tenth century Arabian traders established a blooming city, which was trading lively with the Indians. In 1499 Vasco Da Gama discovered the island on the way back from his Indian expedition. The aim of his trip was to bypass the Arabian, Persian, Turkish and Venetian middlemen because they made spices like pepper extremely expensive. Spices played a big role in Europe in this time, and had a high value because there were not only needed for food but also to conserve the main ingredients used to make medicine. Four years after Da Gamma’s visit the Portuguese established a trade center for spices in Zanzibar.

    By the end of the 17th century the Portuguese lost control of their Zanzibar trade center to the Imam of Muscat. He changed Zanzibar into a center for East African slave trading. During this time six to ten thousand slaves were sold every year from the African continent to the Arabic world. Not until the early 1900's did the colonial powers stop the slave trade.
