These images of a place called Fort Jesus in Mombasa kind of makes me wonder a little bit about the map Zanzibar. I dunno if anyone else sees the similarity

There's no doubt in my mind that this place in Mombasa was the inspiration for Zanzibar, too much similarity. I was shocked when I saw the first photograph especially. You have to love Bungie, they took from the real world and made it an awesome map. I wonder who's idea it was.

Wow, great post buddy! Thanks for this. I was wondering if there was a similarity from Mombasa. The similarities are way too coincidental to be passed off as chance. This only makes the middle of the level even better. I'm really glad you found this. I'm going to show it to my buds.
