some relaxing on Zanzibar after 10 on safari. Nice hotel, lovely white sand, azure blue water, a pool - what else do you want? hmm food maybe, ok, so lets book half board.

Welcome to Zanzibar – not just a funny name, it's hot and muggy too!
Boy, hit the nail on the head there, Phil. We’re just kicking the tires on the rainy season now so the temps are ramping up, the clouds come and go with no rhyme or reason and when it does actually rain it comes down fierce, and it’s tough to tell if …
