Oman and Zanzibar:

Did you know that there is a country in the Middle East that once had their capital in Africa? Their ruler decided he liked it so much that he wanted to live there.
 
Amazing, right?
 
Do you know where we need to travel in order to see this ancient capital?
 
It is indeed Oman and Zanzibar. 
 
Muscat’s position as the centre of all things Omani was compromised in 1832. In fact, this was the year that the city endured a humiliating demotion.
 
Oman had clawed the east African island (which is now part of Tanzania) into its grasp in 1698. By the middle of the 19th century, the ruler of the time, Said bin Sultan, had decided that he loved his tropical outpost so much, he was going to live there – and moved his capital to Stone Town.
 
Much of the latter’s ambience – narrow souk-like streets, its defensive Old Fort, its House of Wonders (an ornate former royal palace built in the late 19th century) – is pinned to this epoch.
