Notes on the Geography of Tanzania: Zanzibar: Photo 3

world pictures Tanzania: Zanzibar

It's not all so primitive. Here's the container port, on land reclaimed since the 1920s, when a port here was first proposed by a British architect. The sleek yacht is a catamaran offering 90-minute trips to Dar es Salaam. The building in the foreground is the late 19th century palace of the Sultan of Zanzibar. We'll come back to it. (For the architect, see H.V. Lanchester, Zanzibar, a Study in Tropical Town Planning, 1923.)
