Zanzibar was a spice trading port in days gone by. It is an interesting destination to spend a few days with the narrow winding streets of the old Stone Town. There are many shops filled with curios and books to while away the time. Sunset was best enjoyed on the terrace of The African restaurant, overlooking the ocean with palm trees swaying in the wind and traditional Dhow boats sailing by.
Every evening the market square is alive with the local food market where you can sample some local cuisine. We opted to have dinner at the Tower Restaurant, overlooking the entire town from its high vantage point. The evening was warm with a lovely sea breeze.
The final 2 days of our adventure in Tanzania with Womens Own Adventure was spent at a lovely small resort on the east coast of the island of Zanzibar. With time to swim, walk along the white sand beaches and snorkel among the coral, brightly coloured fish and giant stafish. Such a treat.
Alas, it is time to return home now, but there will be new adventures on the horizon.
