印度洋中的桑给巴尔岛Zanzibar

截止时间:

  Zanzibar consists of two larges islands, plus several smaller ones, about 40km (25miles) off the coast of east Africa, in the Indian Ocean, about 6' south of the equator. The two large islands are Unguja (usually called Zanzibar Island) and Pemba.

  Zanzibar Island is about 85km long and 32km wide, with an area of just under 1500km square (about 640 square miles)。Pemba Island is about 75km long and 20km wide, with an area around 850km square (about 380 square miles)

  Islands of Zanzibar are generally flat and low land lying. The western and central parts of Zanzibar Island have some low hills, where the highest point is about 120m (390ft) above the sea level. Pemba Island has a central ridge, cut by several small valleys, and appears hillier than Zanzibar Island, although the highest point on Pemba is only 95m (310ft) above sea-level.

  The islands were originally forested, but human habitation has resulted in widespread clearing, although a few isolated pockets of indigenous forest remain. The main crops grown in Zanzibar are coconuts and cloves. Bananas, citrus fruits and other spices are also grown commercially. Maize, cassava and others vegetables and cereals are grown for local consumption. Tourism has been ear-marked as the primary foreign exchange earner, with more visitors coming to Zanzibar each year. At this stage, the numbers are still low (less than 100,000 annually) and the potential for tourism is relatively untapped. We are dedicated to sensitive tourism that benefits both visitors and the community, without losing the romance and magic that is Zanzibar .

  印度洋中的桑给巴尔岛(Zanzibar坦桑尼亚东北部)包括两个大岛和几个小岛,里非洲东部海岸线约40公里(25英里),大约在南纬6度。两个大岛分别是安古迦岛(Unguja)通常被叫做桑给巴尔岛和奔巴岛(Pemba)。

  桑给巴尔岛约85公里长,32公里宽,面积接近1500平方公里(大约640平方英里)。奔巴岛大约75公里长,20公里宽,面积大约850平方公里(约380平方英里)。

  桑给巴尔的岛一般是比较平坦低的土地。西部和中部的有一些低矮的小山,这里的最高海拔是120米(390英尺)。奔巴岛虽然最高海拔只有95米(310英尺),但是它的中部有一明显的边缘地带,是被一些小的峡谷切断,因此比桑给巴尔岛显得多山。

  这里原来是一片森林,虽然仍然有一些原始的森林带存在,但是人类的居住使这块土地成为大面积的平地。这里的主要种植的是椰子和丁香。商业性质上这里还会种植香蕉,柑橘类的植物以及其他一些香料。而为了满足本地的一些消费,则会种植一些玉米,木薯和其他一些蔬菜和谷类。随着每年越来越多的游客来到这里,旅游业已经被认定为第一重要的争取外汇的行业。每年来旅游的客人总数仍然少(每年不到10万人),但是潜力却很大。我们应该致力与让游客和本地社区达到双赢,既满足游客的愿望又不失桑给巴尔的浪漫与神气。
