Zanzibar’s Stone Town
Stone Town is the old town and literary heart of Zanzibar. It is place of twisting passageways, lively bazaar s, mosques as well as grand Arab houses. World Heritage Site is the stone town by UNESCO. Don’t be confused by its name that it’s a museum or something or something like that – real communities live here. Most of the houses of Zanzibar were built in the 19th century.

Like-shore Gombe Stream and Mahale Mountains national parks are undoubtedly the best places to track chimpanzees.
