    ... east Zanzibar resort, The Breezes. It's beautiful & our rooms were very comfortable, styled sort of Arabian nights decor & the dining areas, pool & beach area look wonderful plus the dinners & breakfasts included in our package proved to have very good food.

    7.30am saw us on the road heading for Arusha. As we left Katesh it was raining and Mt Hanang had disappeared completely. We really can't believe our luck with the weather we have had. The 3yr old bitumen road was a blessing but there was a rather sombre feeling in the vehicles ...
