Get to Know Stone Town

A maze of narrow streets jammed with bicycles and motorbikes, Stone Town is a place of historical and artistic value

Stone Town is a lively jumble of narrow colourful alleys and traders, with a wealth of cross-cultural influences in its architecture. A number of historical sites are worth visiting, such as the old slave market, the Old Fort and the House of Wonders.

When you arrive, you have to clear customs and immigration at the airport. Zanzibar has its own government and therefore it’s own fairly lax legislation that could change from time to time. Yellow fever certificates are usually checked and international flight departure taxes charged. If you arrive on an international flight, you’ll need to show your visa and yellow fever vaccination certificate. If you arrive from within Tanzania you just walk through the airport building after you collect your luggage.
