Zanzibar

Zanzibar knows as a tiny paradise!

Zanzibar is in Africa. It has four big islands a such as Pemba, Unguja, Mafia, and Kizimkazi. All together, they make Zanzibar.
Zanzibar is the name of an archipelago in the Indian Ocean 25–50 km off the coast of East Africa. There are many small islands and two large ones: Unguja (the main island, sometimes referred to as ‘Zanzibar’) and Pemba Island.
The archipelago was once the separate state of Zanzibar, which united with Tanganyika to form Tanzania (derived from the two names). Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous within the union, with its own government.
The capital of Zanzibar is Zanzibar City. It is on the island of Unguja. The city’s old quarter, known as Stone Town, is a World Heritage Site.
The people are mostly African Bantu, with some Asians of Indian origin.
