Wind Power Station 7, located on Zanzibar Island

Zanzibar Island is an island that is part of Tanzania,[1] East African Protectorate.[2] It is located off the east coast of Africa.[3]


In the 2400s, the East African Protectorate started a re-nationalization initiative creating Wind Power Station 7 on the island[4] and several wave power stations.[2] Wind Power Station 7 would be abandoned, and like many other industrial sites, was eventually used as a Spartan training site.[5]

Following the Human-Covenant War and the destruction of the Mombasa Tether, the construction of a new space elevator was initiated on the Indian Ocean just off the coast of Zanzibar Island.[6]


This area is the location of the Halo 2 multiplayer map Zanzibar, the Halo 2: Anniversary multiplayer map Stonetown, and the Halo 3 multiplayer map Last Resort.
