We arrived at Sunset Bungalows by 12.30pm; fantastic rooms and an afternoon of strolling up and down the beach and swimming in the clear blue sea - bliss! Yesterday some of the group went scuba diving, while Caitlyn, Jim, Dean and I went …

Surprisingly, I did not wake up with a hangover today! But still opted for a chilled day on the beach and in the village. A surprise visit from Alex made my day, and swimming with turtles in the afternoon made it a productive day. The turtles are rough to touch, and all wrinkly, with smooth shells and are happy to swim with you as long as you …

Fiona is tired of answering 'how are you?' from the natives. On the recommendation of Aussie John and Naomi, tried the Nungwi Inn for lunch, having a nice calamari salad, amusing ourselves with whom of the people met one would/would not readily travel with and who was the ugliest [Jen 'wins' two out of three].

    Great beach and newly built accommodations with great bathroom amenities. Nice bar and restaurant - quiet but not dead. Would go back if I had the chance.
