I also spoke to a taxi driver named Omy who was from Zanzibar and helped me navigate the streets of Stone Town when I arrived, and get me to the Dala ...

It is definitely recommended, far less traffic and this time we take the ferry and go through the city and not around the city. En route we travel past the Baobab Valley between Morogoro and Iringa. It is amaizing to see such a high concentration of these giant trees over a 15 km stretch. At 16:00 we arrive at "The ...
