    ZANZIBAR

    November 4 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    You guessed right! ZANZIBAR. We have arrived from the main land after 15 minutes of flight. YES! 15 minutes. We needed much longer to get from the bus station to the airport. Crazy.

    Here you have some details about Zanzibar in advance :D

    Zanzibar island itself is approximately 90km long and 40km wide.
    The island’s economy depends on agriculture and fishing. Considerable areas of fertile soil and a favorable climate enable the production of a variety of tropical crops, most importantly cloves and coconuts. Local food crops, such as rice, cassava, yams, and tropical fruit, are also important. Fish is an important part of the diet, and local fisheries employ perhaps about one-tenth of the population.

    And now from our feelings it´s most probably the best we have ever seen. Color of the ocean is turquoise blue and sand is sooo white that when sunshine is shining so that the reflection is really strong in your eyes. You cannot leave the house without sunglasses. We were a bit surprised that around 10 o´clock is low tide and water is so far that you cannot go to swim, but we should not complain anyway as we are in the paradise... right? :)

    And relax....

    August 8, 2017 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Yesterdays trip to Zanzibar was definitely an introduction to African travel. Our so called direct flight to Zanzibar with 12 passengers and one pilot stopped twice before we got to Zanzibar. First at tanga and then in a field to drop off some passengers who got in a 4x4. The final passenger had to sit up front next to the pilot and we were directly behind them. The pilots classic words of "don't touch anything" will remain with me for a while. Still it was interesting and when Oliver needed the washroom in tanga we exited through the door of the cockpit.
    When we got to Zanzibar it was much more populated than the rest of the places we have been. We were relieved to see the sign with our name on in the mass of humanity outside the airport and had an hour drive to our resort. The Neptune resort is all inclusive which makes things easy and appears to be full of Russians and germans. It is lovely to rest by the beach for a day without bouncing around in a truck.
    Zanzibar is famous for spices like cardamom and cloves so tomorrow we are doing a spice tour. However today is just ..... relax.

    More from the spice farm

    August 9, 2017 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    A few photos of our lovely coconut leaved hats etc and a video of one of the guides climbing a huge coconut tree. Very impressive !!
    We left the spice farm around 11am and then went onto a quick tour of stone town. The old part of Zanzibar town which was small streets and lovely old buildings with beautiful carved wooden doors. Decided if we ever came back we would love to stay there instead of our all inclusive resort which is nice but not really Zanzibar.Read more
