Product Details

"When you are younger you take Zanzibar for granted.Only when you get older do you realize its beauty"
- Abeid Karume

Off the coast of East Africa in the Indian Ocean sits an archipelago known as Zanzibar. It all started ten million years ago when the island of Pemba separated from mainland Africa and then ten thousand years ago, the island of Unguja followed suit. Thus, begins the legend of Zanzibar. For centuries, Zanzibar has been the haven and gateway for explorers including Richard Burton and David Livingstone to penetrate the unknown African Continent. Forward to present day,and it is still possible to experience the unique wildlife whether that is by scuba diving off the coast of a private island or visiting the Jozani Forest to see the endemic red colobus monkey. This cluster of islands is at a crossroads of cultures,featuring Omani architecture, Portuguese vocabulary and an assortment of international cuisines.

Photographer Aline Coquelle shares an intimate portrait of a community bursting with life. With original photography, adisappearing, indigenous culture is preserved and celebrated. This volume invites the reader to experience the paradise that is Zanzibar.
