The dhow – the lateen –rigged sailing vessel unique to the Indian Ocean – is one of the symbols characteristic of Zanzibar. The white sail of these vessels, seen floating above turquoise waters, may be the first image to strike the visitor when approaching Zanzibar on the ferry, or when peering out through the window of a beach bungalow on a sunny morning. But the dhow is more than just a utilitarian sailing boat; it is an emblem of the historical and cultural evolution of the Island and the coastal communities nearby.
As part of the maritime economy the dhows used to bring people on to the Island. Their crew mixed with locals and from this was born the Zanzibar culture.

Mount Kilimanjro is located at the north/eastern tip of Tanzania. For the adventurous, a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro is a must taking you through the mists of equatorial jungle to reach the snows and breath-taking views from the summit.
