With locations across Tanzania, in cities and national parks alike, we have been able to cater to locals and tourists visiting the country. We thought that it was high time for us to bring Tanzanite to Zanzibar - from bush to the beach.
A Brief About Tanzanite
Did you know that Tanzanite comes in different hues of blues and violets? Tanzanite displays vibrant hues of blues and violets. It is one of the rarest gemstones found only in Tanzania, in the Mererani Hills in Arusha.
Depending on which direction it is viewed, Tanzanite can appear blue, violet or even red. However, blue remains the most sought-after and high-value color of Tanzanite. If you are looking for a piece that states, unique, rare and elegant then Tanzanite is your best bet, the bluer the better.
A Bit About Zanzibar; The Spice Island
Did you know that Zanzibar is the best place in Tanzania to enjoy clear blue ocean water and white sandy beaches. It also has the most mesmerizing sunrise and sunsets.
Zanzibar is located off the East Coast of Tanzania. It is made of two islands,Unguja Island (what most people refer to as Zanzibar) and Pemba Island. It is well known for its beach experiences, offering memorable opportunities for swimming, surfing, diving, fishing and a lot more.
The island also has an abundance of fish and seafood that the island is. You can witness this when by visiting forodhani gardens in the evenings. You will be amazed by the variety of fish and seafood at display.
However, the mesmerizing blue ocean is not the only thing that we love about Zanzibar, or what makes it unique. Zanzibar is rich in cultural history as it was once under the influence of the Sultanate of Oman.
Traces of that influence can be seen to date via the buildings such as sultan’s palace, as well as influences in religion and culture. While the islands were ruled by other nations, the Arabs left a stronger footprint that you can still see in Zanzibar today.
Being a producer of spices such as cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper, Zanzibar gained the name "Spice Islands". The spice market in Zanzibar is a perfect opportunity to indulge your sense of smell, and makes for a great shopping opportunity for souvenirs.
Zanzibar is inhabited mostly the Swahili people and a number of Arabs, Persians and Indians. Today, as the island grows as a tourist destination, Zanzibar sees visitors from all over the world.
If we can sum up Zanzibar in one word, it would be exotic.
