Beit el Mtoni literally means ‘the palace by the stream’. It is one of the oldest buildings on Zanzibar and was the largest palace on the island during the reign of Sultan Sayyid Said, who moved the capital of his Omani empire form Muscat to Zanzibar during the first half of the 19th century. A tour around the Mtoni Palace and the Persian Baths is followed by a dinner concert featuring a new sound of orchestral taarab. All profits go to the Mtoni Palace Conservation Project and directly contribute to the restoration and maintenance of Beit el Mtoni.
