Forodhani Park, Stone Town

Situated between sea and city, Forodhani Park hosts a bubbling social and culinary hub frequented by locals and visitors alike. Established as a silver jubilee park in 1936 in honor of Sultan Khalifa, the gardens underwent renovation in 2010 to host three cafes overlooking the bay, numerous walkways, and scenic landscaping. Visit the gardens in the evening to experience its bustling food market, mingling the tastes and smells of Zanzibar, including delicacies of seafood, cassava, and sweet potato soups. Expect crowds at night; visit by day for a more relaxed atmosphere and views of the water and islands beyond.

  • Super touristy market, but fun to walk around (beware of the druggies trying to sell you spices and weed). The food is good if you are brave enough to try it, sugar cane juice is a MUST!  more »
  • Surely a leap is worth it to be altogether of holy patience for the people who take on them continuously as in the whole capital. You eat well for nothing,.recommended the zanzibarpizza of mr mango (which has nothing to do with the Italian one) for less than 2 euros
