Pemba Island, called as the "Green island" in Arabic, is an Island forming part of the Zanzibar archipelago.
In very old times, Pemba was known by Arab sailors as El Huthera, meaning the Green, on account of her lush and dense vegetation. There are more natural plantations and forests than on Zanzibar Island, and Pemba grows more cloves than her bigger sister.
Pemba Island was captured by the Sultan of Muscat in the 17th century. He was so charmed by the Spice Island that he installed himself in Zanzibar and ruled Muscat from there. When the Western Colonial countries came to East Africa the British forced the divide of Zanzibar and Muscat then ruled the Spice Islands in the name of Sultan.
