The African continent is one of the tourist destinations that are still rarely included in the list of holiday tourists from Indonesia.
Apart from the long distance, the cost of making a visa and the cost of traveling to the continent which is commonly called The Dark Continent, are the main reasons.
However, make no mistake, with all these difficulties, if you get through it, all will pay off with the natural beauty it has.
One of the African-owned countries that will blow your mind is Tanzania, to be precise in the Zanzibar Islands.
The clear sea water, the white sand on the beach, the unique local culture, the colorful fish that are scattered in the shallow wide sea, and the cute-looking giant animals are unique things that are always sought after by tourists visiting the Zanzibar Islands.
Here are four places that you must visit to enjoy the millions of truly juvenile creations of God.

Furthermore, on Prison Island you can enjoy unique and beautiful fauna.
Who has ever heard of an animal called the Galapagos?
