Jozani Forest

A travel blog entry by larry.phillips


... There are only about 2,500 left and they are a protected species.

We then toured a mangrove swamp. They have built a boardwalk through it. Mangroves grow in salt water and are important for 2 reasons. They protect the shoreline from erosion and also they are a breeding ground for many species who, when mature, return to the ocean. Very tall trees and a dense system of roots.

We have become very fond of the staff at our hotel after a week, ...

A travel blog entry by roberton


7am. We loaded the Land Cruiser with our stuff and 2 spare bright young things from London. (James and Helen, that's you). Like us, they had enjoyed Kilwa, but were keen to enjoy somewhere else as soon as practicable. Our route was the B2 highway to Dar Es Salam.
