Introducing Zanzibar Town (Stone Town & Ng’ambo)

Zanzibar Town, on the western side of the island, is the heart of the archipelago, and the first stop for most travellers. The best-known section by far is the old Stone Town (Mji Mkongwe), surrounded on three sides by the sea and bordered to the east by Creek Rd. Directly east of Stone Town is the bustling, less atmospheric section of Ng’ambo, which you’ll pass through en route to the beaches.
