The Spice Island of Zanzibar

... seen a lock like this before. To put them at ease I held it up and tried to show them it was a lock but they jolted back and looked even more terrified so I thought I'd best just let it go and let them just watch it for the duration of the journey!
These buses do make me laugh. It's the same on mainland in Moshi - the buses get packed so if a lady comes on with a baby or child, instead of someone letting them sit in their place, the Mum just passes the child to a ...

Hakuna Matata

... complete with Precor equipment and satellite TV!) and in the pool. Nearly every hotel staffer we encountered said "hakuna matata" to us at some point in our conversations; this did not appear to be just for the benefit of tourists, because we heard them say it to each other frequently, as well. It really does seem to be their problem-free philosophy here, and we embraced it.

... organized a tour of Prison Island 20 minute boat ride off of Stone Town. We had an hour ride from the resort then a dhow ride. a dhow is a small boat. it is usually thought of with a sail but doesn't always. The prison was built but used as a quarantine "hospital" for slaves suffering from cholera. They were still shackled and manacled while being treated so they could get well enough to be sent to Arab countries. One of the ...

Stone Town and The Spice Tour

A travel blog entry by kevin-francesca


We have arrived in Zanzibar today and we have spent the day exploring Stone Town. Stone Town is situated on the west cost in the middle of the island and it is named for the coral stone used to build its buildings. It is a Muslim village and it is full of mosques and a lot of Arabic architecture. Right after checking into our hotel (yes, after 30 days we will finally sleep in a bed!) we started the spice tour (the nickname for Zanzibar is the spice ...

Beach beach let's get away

A travel blog entry by alexobt

... due to the aforementioned slowness, but also because I've discovered the monthly rave on the northern beaches is scheduled for the 20th of July. It's a so-called full-moon party, a cunning import from Thailand that draws hundreds (or more likely dozens) of travellers from across East Africa. I assume it'll have all the usual - alcohol, sand, loud music and authentic local culture. I have the sneaking suspicion it'll turn out ...

    Food poison

    I still hear the words of the chef in my ear: "sorry, we don't have the fish you ordered anymore but I will bring you another one.." -some hours later, I had food poison and won't go into details, but it was really awful. At the same time, like many times before, the toilet did not flush - again no details..
    Besides that, you can't swim during low tide (sea is far off the coast), nor during hide tide (too big waves). At Kendwa rock, only 10min by car, go get a nice beach for the same price - go there!!!
