Then we heard a car passing out house which is standing lets say almost in nowhere and after few minutes someone was moving the gates of the house. Felt really unsafe. Margo was sleeping in another room and she heard clock ticking Ashe thought it was a bomb on the roof :D well sometimes you really feel unsafe, not in your continent, without any possible help.

          Stop for lunch about 60kms from Dar es Salaam about 12.15pm. The only place we can find to stop ends up being on army ground.

Located at Nungwi Beach is the Hideaway Resort, the reason for our visit. Shown about by George and Antonella, this is a property to behold and thus far, my favourite on Zanzibar. Opening, luck would have it, tonight for its first guests, it's ...

          We’ve left our truck in Dar es Salaam and crossed over on a ferry to Zanzibar for 3 nights. The first night was spent in Stone Town which is a lovely town which feels almost Italian with lots of big lovely buildings and an ancient fort in the middle of town. We even went to ...
