Client Feedback

Hi Bruce,

Yes we have encountered Zanzibar! We had a good time, it was great to be back in Africa again.


The Beyt Al Chai was comfortable and staff friendly.  The restaurant was excellent and would recommend eating and staying there. Stonetown was easy to wander around. We did a 3 hour photo walk with a professional photographer and his wife who is local so we were able to wander in areas we probably wouldn’t do on our own and Zakkia took us inside some of the courtyards  and we were able to take photos of local children.  We did get caught up on the outskirts of a demonstration with tear gas and had to take refuge in a police station for a while, but it was all good fun!

Unguja lodge was very pleasant. The accommodation is very special.  The food is ok, I wouldn’t say it’s brilliant but the staff are lovely, nothing is too much trouble.  We were surrounded by Dutch but they were friendly enough, better than lots of Americans!

The flight connections were tight and if we were booking again we would give ourselves more time.  We didn’t realize that we had to get a taxi to the domestic airport in Dar which stressed us a bit as we were running out of time!  Plus coming back Zanair put us with another airline, Coastal air, which was flying later  and was delayed. Fortunately our Emirates flight was an hour late.  However as we used to say ,TIA,  this is Africa and no-one seemed bothered by our problem!

So all in all a great trip, lovely temperature (it’s 45C here in Dubai!) lovely people and beautiful beaches and sea!

Regards
Nadia
