This week, we venture to Zanzibar with Copenhagen-based videographer, Mathias Arvedsen.

The video was created from a 21-day-trip to the picturesque archipelago. The highlights including Stone Town, Jambiani, Paje, Matemwe, Kizimkazi and Makunduchi are captured using a DJI Phantom 3 Pro, GoPro Hero 3+ and Canon 5DMKIII.

"Beautiful nature, delicious fruit and smiling openminded people is three of many reasons to go there."
