Vast empty beaches where social distancing is the norm rather than the exception. A UNESCO-protected historic Old Town. Accommodation for every taste and budget. Hygienic measures up to international standards. After two months of self-isolation, Zanzibar, the palm fringed archipelago in the Indian Ocean, is open for business again – one of the first holiday destinations in the world to do so.

Sort of a “less-jet-skis-more-education” formula. Could that be the new normal even for Zanzibar? Come and see for yourself.

Zanzibar inakusubiri.
