This quaint hotel can be hard to locate as it is tucked in behind another building, but it is centrally located and is only 5 min from the ferry terminal. Rooms were clean, a/c worked, and staff were very friendly and accommodating! A good spot to stay if you are traveling on a budget.

The trip from Mafia to Zanzibar was as smooth as a baby's bottom, despite a bit of wet and cloudy weather while flying.

After what seemed like hours and a very bumpy drive along a road that hadn't yet been finished, we arrived and took the …

Friday we got up really early to leave so we could catch the morning ferry in Dar Es Salaam over to the island. We were all on time but the driver and ...
Well mind of. To start off, we made it safely. Our flights from Cape Town to Joberg and then Joberg tomDar es Salaam were uneventful except for the yummy food we had because we were in first class. Landing in Dar es Salaam and attempting to get a visa was another story. First of all, they are expensive. Then you have to get checked in by this military looking guy who takes your passport and your money to this other lady. Then you wait in this clump of ...
... we all hop on board a minibus to get to Northbeach - beautiful azure blue water and golden sand. We all head for the beach - first of the trip - water is so warm its ridiculous. Nice to get to the beach after being in the truck for so long.
Sunset cruise booked in for the evening which turns out to be alot of fun. About 10 of us on a boat drinking beer with a local band (about 10 of them as well). By sunset everyone on the boat is flying ...
