Well the hotel and spa are 5 stars... The food isn't... So if just like me, you love your food, well it's not bad, but could be much better.
The best food was at Gabi Beach: go there!

So I have been kinda lazy these past few days...but here we go again! Unguja is the main Island of Zanzibar. I arrived before 9 am at the ferry terminal. It didn't even take 2 hours to go there from the main land and the ride was nice! Since I wanted to go kite surfing on the east coast I wanted to head to Paje directly.

I was trying to think what is worse no power or no water, so I realized that no water, as I could probably survive without ...
We got tuk-tuks to the ferry and then after 2 hours on the boat we arrived on the beautiful island of Zanzibar!! We stayed the first night in Stone town and spent the afternoon doing a spice tour in the centre of the island, and saw how cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, ginger, lemongrass, peppercorn, turmeric etc are grown. Spices are one of Zanzibar's biggest exports and the farmers ...
This morning we visited the Jozani forest, a national park that is home to a number of red colubus monkeys. They live only here on Zanzibar. Our guide walked us to where a group of the monkeys were, and they were totally unfazed by our presence. These monkeys cannot digest sugar and eat only flowers and young leaves and some fruits. When these monkeys eat something that is difficult to digest they will eat charcoal as a digestive aid. ...
