Went thinking there shall be lots to see and visit, but there wasn't much apart from the small room where slaves were kept. Not a must to visit, but if interested in history.. theres an aisle of stories.

We booked this trip through Island Express and our guide was wonderful. He didn't rush us through everything. He told us a lot of stories about the old slave market and of course the famous Dr. Livingstone! Not to be missed is the slave memorial!!

Hello, I am interested in visiting a historical tour in Tanzania that is closely associated with the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, I am staying in Nairobi, Kenya. My question is does anyone recommend we get a hotel while out there? Or would anyone recommend I look for something closer in Tanzania? This is on the island of Zanzibar, and my mom doesn't do too well with water... so I was thinking of Tanzania... What are your thoughts? Thank you so much
