Zanzibar is a group of islands 25-50 km off the coast of East Africa. In the early 19th century, the islands of Zanzibar were controlled by Oman, but in 1861 Zanzibar became independent of Oman and was a self governing area. Zanzibar was an important trading area for spices such as pepper, cloves, cinnamon, and nut. This independence only lasted until 1890 when the British took control.
