Once a tropical paradise, Zanzibar is now a small abandoned township off the coast of Africa about 175 km south of New Mombasa, which was the Covenant's main incursion point in their first attack on Earth in 2552.
The island houses one of the 49 large power generators that powered various facilities around that area before it was decommissioned for the war. It was one of the many various battlegrounds of the Covenant's invasion. Survivors of the initial assault called it "Hell on Earth."
- This area is the location of the multiplayer maps Zanzibar in Halo 2, Last Resort in Halo 3 and Zanzibar Anniversary in Halo 2: Anniversary.
