There's been so much hype about #Zanzibar, but at the same time, a few people weren't particularly thrilled. Had to go find out for myself ,so some friends and I planned a trip. What I think? Top rating for beaches, good food, so much to see, history. Read this thread... #Travel
From #DaresSalaam, you have the options of flying or going by ferry to #Zanzibar. On the other hand, you could fly directly there. We spent a few days in Dar, then we went by ferry...it cost $35 per person for economy and $50 per person for VIP. We travelled in the VIP section.
It takes 1hr30mins to get to Zanzibar by ferry. It could take longer when it's turbulent. The hotel we stayed in was an hour away from stone town. We stayed in Nungwi which is North of Zanzibar. #Travel #Africa #Tanzania #holidays
There is a lot to do in Zanzibar so depending on how long you plan to stay, you will have many options. We found the marine turtle conservation project which was a ten minute walk from the hotel. Our guide was extremely passionate and loaded us with so much information.
In the corner of the #turtle aquarium, there was an #environment project where they collect rubbish and build useful items. This onlybrings to light how much damage we do to the environment. It may have unconscious before, but not anymore...we all have a part to play. #Travel
There are hotels all around and it is obvious that the part we stayed in was made for #tourists. We were right by the sea, getting all the #beach vibes. The #food is also quite good, we ate in a few places, there were fresh coconuts daily. It was like we were removed from reality
We went to a spice farm, it was quite informative, then we went to Prison Island. We went to see tortoises, they are huge! Their ages are written on their backs. We went to see the prison area and heard some rather depressing #slavetrade #history. Those are never easy on the ears
I held onto those chains that once held slaves bound and was #grateful to be born a free #Blackwoman. Then we went through the point of no return and I wondered how the #slaves must have felt being put into a ship heading to an unknown destination. It was humbling.
