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!!!

... with. Nungwi Village was charming, but alarmingly poor in the shadow of so many grand beachfront hotels. The wealth from tourism does not appear to trickle down to village residents, many of whom are probably fishermen. It was a little hard to see the conditions of the village shacks.
We found the dive shop, run by a retired Austrian couple, and confirmed our dives for the next day. We then spent the rest of the afternoon on the beach, at ...
... the evening jumping and diving off the roof of an old wooden sailing boat for a sunset booze cruise with the rest of the group, accompanied by live African music from our crew singing and drumming. Sea salt has replaced the dust of the Serengeti which had become embedded in our ears, eyes, noses, and everything we own. We’ve had 2 amazing days here and we now head back to Stone Town very relaxed and a little bit ...
... Simon also gave us a very exhaustive explanation about all the spices. The plantation we went to was founded 7 years ago and it is property of a village. All the villagers work on the farm to manufacturing spices, soaps, perfumes and lotions. Here is what we saw: - Bread loaf tree: a tree that makes bread fruit (locally call Shelley). I tasted it and it is kinda like a potato but is very plain. - Turmeric: it is a roof that can be used to make soups. ...
