Postal services are provided by Tanzania Posts Corporation. The gorgeous Shangani Post Office, also known as the Old Post Office, was designed by the British architect J.H. Sinclair in the Saracenic style. The building was inaugurated in 1906 and served as Zanzibar's main office until the end of the Sultanate of Zanzibar in 1964. The two-story building with a ground-level colonnade is a tourist attraction in itself. Send a postcard to your friends back home while you're there!
