CAIRO – 17 July 2017: Just off the coast of Tanzania lies an obscure little heaven called Zanzibar - a perfect vacation destination whether alone or with company. This is the place to go, and here are 5 reasons why you should definitely visit Zanzibar:
1. MANGO, MANGO, MANGO!
Seriously, just wait until you taste it. Ripe for picking and wrapped in the sweetness of the equator, which is so very sweet! Zanzibar’s Mango will make you forget about all the other Mangos in your past.

Zanzibar went through a cultural perfect storm and came out safe and decorated: Africans, Arabs, Persians, Europeans, Indians - you name it. Each and every one of them left a significant tone resulting into the harmonious symphony Zanzibar is today.
