We love the Zanzibar kitchen
The Zanzibar kitchen is a mix of Indian,  Arab and African influences. The sea offers all you can ask for – tuna, marlin, lobster, prawns, calamari, octopus- you name it. And the ubiquitous sun makes the fruit burst from flavors, ripe and sweet. This luscious journey on the Spice Island Zanzibar brings a tasty experience of food and culture, spices and exotic fruit, friendly people and stunning settings and you will indulge in fresh seafood, spices, fruit and vegetables in season.
