    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!

    Another early wake up call at 4.50am so Muli could get us to the airport for our 8.10am Precision Air flight to Zanzibar. It was sad to say goodbye to him, as he has been such a warm and friendly host, guide and driver for our entire Kenyan holiday. Our flight to Zanzibar leaves on time and we fly passed Mount Kilamanjero enshrouded in clouds with …

    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 …

    ... super rich. The actual snorkeling was okay - unfortunately some of the coral is dying, but there were still a lot of fish. We tried out taking photos with an underwater camera bag for the first time, which was a bit tricky, but we've included a sample. Probably the dolphins we saw on the way were a greater highlight, since we'd never seen any in the wild before. That and the amazing amazing ...

    ... disgusting squat toilets,you'll be glad to know we have succumbed to these standards finally!), why not? Unfortunately at about 10pm, we had a message from the ranger telling us not to leave our tents as a pack of 6 lions had come to hunt said zebra. Obviously I decided to follow this advice and stay in the tent, even though it meant forgoing some extra star gazing time!

    The following day we went for a game drive in Ngorongoro (maybe spelt ...
