      Today marked the first day of our overland… all started with a three day trip to Zanzibar (no complaints from our side!)

      We packed up our bags and headed to meet the rest of our group over a 6am breakfast. We managed to take in as many names and faces we could among the sleepy faces and low light.
      As the sun rose, we climbed into the truck and drove 10 minutes down the road to the Kigamboni Ferry Terminal for our ...

We then stopped off at an island on the way back for a BBQ. When we got back ...

      ... Gabi to the port and said them good bye. Then we had lunch in a local restaurant (Zanzibari rice and peas).

      We intended to visit two more sights – House of Wonders and Sultanīs Palace. Both of them are museums but we didnīt enter any of them. The House of Wonders is a national museum but it was closed.

      Later in the afternoon we picked up our bags and walked to a stand from where dalla-dallas in direction to Paje depart. While in Kenya they use matatus, ...
