    Beautifully restored hotel, with comfortable rooms and a lovely sense of history. The bar and pool area is gorgeous, but they don't sell alcohol. We really loved it there

    We had a tag-along traveller, so we had to ask for a room with enough room to put an extra bed in. Instead, they upgraded our room and we ended up with one of the most luxurious rooms in the hotel: third floor, facing street (can't remember which side). Two or three four-poster beds in a room about 400-500 sq. ft.

    Breakfast room is on the roof, so the view is incredible with breakfast. The pool is small but quaint and much appreciated given the oppressive muggy heat of Zanzibar in November. Staff are a bit lackadaisical, but I fear this is more the norm than the exception in Zanzibar. It's an island and island time rules here!

    Enjoyed wandering around the old and narrow alleyways of Stonetown. We did a two hour walking tour to the slave museum, palace museum and the markets.

    We were pleased the sunset cruise in a dhow only lasted an hour. Our Zanzibar musicians did not enice us into buying any music CD's.

    Today was our first cloudy day.

    We had a great drive on a sealed road to Arusha where we catch our plane to Zanzibar. Had two stops on the way- one for coffee and reasonably priced souvenirs and the 2nd at the Cultural Centre which was highly overpriced but did have a beautiful art gallery. The stalls near the airport are fixed price and …

    While Zanzibar is infamous for its slave history, it is famous for its spices. Today saw us heading off to a tourist spice farm to learn about these condiments to our food. The day was warm but pleasant, the soils rich chocolate colour and the butterflies and giant land-snails were common. Our Tour Guides were young Africans with broad smiles and …

    After a quiet morning, we went for a tour of town, down little narrow streets, past huge metal studded doors and street hawkers to an Indian-style restaurant for some lunch. Seated on cushions on the floor, we waited some time for our meals but they eventually came - we thought they hadn't expected such a big group to arrive with no notice. After …

    Our day to leave Fumba and head back into town to stay at Stone Town - the oldest part of Zanzibar City, first settled by fisherman, its first stone house being built during the 1830's, but becoming the capital of the Sultanate of Oman in 1840. In 1861 Zanzibar became an independent Sultanate. Today it is a semi-autonomous part of Tanzania. The …
