You may never have heard of the “Spice Islands”. Pretty cool name, right? But where exactly are the Spice Islands, and why do they have such a strange name? The Spice Islands is actually a nickname for a beautiful set of islands in East Africa. You’ve probably heard of them, actually. The real name of this set of islands is the Zanzibar Archipelago. It’s more frequently referred to as simply “Zanzibar”!
There are loads of incredible places to visit in Africa. And when people consider island holidays in that continent, they’re more likely to think of Madagascar. But I’d recommend putting Zanzibar on your bucket list instead.
