Zanzibar is the best place I have ever been to. Let me share with you what I got to see and experience during my stay there. I am going to be wrong if I say I did not enjoy every bit there. It was pretty amazing and I am the kind of person who believes that when you get a chance to travel, please do it and don’t look back.
I was there for two months. I felt right at home because atleast they speak swahili. Trust me you do not want to go to a foreign land where you do not understand each other like when I was in cameroon. If you did not read about my stay there, then here is the writeup.
Now, for those who do not know, Zanzibar is an island meaning its surrounded by a water body. It is also in Tanzania meaning it’s in East Africa. Do you know how many times I was asked “By the way huko ni sa ngapi?” hehehe. It is in the same time zone as Kenya.
I observed that 98% of the people staying there are Muslims. The ladies dress in deras and buibui. Not showing any part of their bodies. I remember this one time I went to ‘mjini’ meaning town, I was in a jeans trouser and a t-shirt and everyone was staring at me like I was from another planet.
I will share with you guys a few pictures on how my stay was.
I also got the chance to go to visit Nungwi beach which is mainly known for alot of tourists.
Here are a few pictures
The above are fishing boats. Fish is the main dish here and it is readily available. I use to have fish like every other day.
I also got the opportunity to see this new boat that was been mend by the fishermen there and also a handcrafted boat that was in the hotel I was in. Here is a pic.
They also have the forodhani gardens. This is where there are ferries and boats that also go to Dar-es-salaam which is a distance of almost two hours. Here I saw alot of different sea foods from lobster, octopus and many more that the tourists were having.
Sample sea food pictures. We have the crab, lobster, octopus…e.t.c
Forodhani is in stone town. Basically its the oldest town in Zanzibar and as I walked along the town, I realized this unique door that I was later told its called ‘Mlango wa Zanzibar’. This door shows the cultural roots of zanzibar and here is a picture of how it looks like.
The above first picture shows the sunset from where I was staying. Second one is a view of the beach from the hotel.
Zanzibar was a great place and if given the opportunity to go again, I sure would.
Thank you for passing by!
