Eine Insel wie in den Märchen von 1001 Nacht

An island like in the fairy tales of 1001 nights

Zanzibar awakens longings as few places are able to do. Those who travel to Zanzibar see dolphins and monkeys, coral reefs and rainforest, smell pepper, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla. Besides white sandy beaches and the turquoise ocean, the island's great magic lies in its history as a unique melting pot of different cultures. Even today, Swahili, Persian, Arab and European people meet in the early morning hours for spiced coffee in the narrow streets of Stone Town. The harmonious coexistence of cultures as well as the great passion for spices influences the culinary events of the day.

The Zanzibar archipelago is located 6° south of the equator off the east coast of Africa. The archipelago consists of the main islands of Unguja and Pemba, as well as more than 50 associated side islands. Unguja is the largest as well as the most popular island and is colloquially known as "Zanzibar". Zanzibar traded with Pharaonic Egypt as early as 2,500 BC and was one of the most important trading metropolises in the Indian Ocean for a long time. In the 19th century, Zanzibar was the most successful clove producer in the world. The ideal climatic conditions continue to produce the highest quality spices to this day.

In the midst of Stone Town, Zanzibar's capital city steeped in history, the headquarters of 1001 Organic has been located since 2012. The impressive architecture and the narrow, winding streets, make this place unique. Mosques, churches and Hindu temples are located in close proximity to African markets as well as old trading houses. In 2000, Stone Town was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

To experience the magic of the island, all you have to do is take a deep breath through your nose and let your eyes wander through Stone Town's bustling alleys.
