Finding paradise in Zanzibar

Wandering the street maze Spent part of the day getting lost in amongst the tall stone buildings that make up Stonetown.
Slave museum, Stonetown Discovered the sad history of the slave trade, very moving.
Stonetown, Zanzibar Today we travelled to Stonetown to explore a different side of Zanzibar and stumbled across the old Fort.

Pink sunset My cocktail was perfectly named for the occasion, sipping the pink sunset while watching the sky change was beautiful.
Travelling truths! Life isn't all sun, sea and sand. Cold showers and hand washing your essentials is the traveller reality! Not all bad when you're a two second stroll to the beach though.
Kendwa, Zanzibar Took a long stroll across the shoreline to Kendwa Rocks. Had a spot of lunch and relaxed in the boat bed, just because.
Candlelit dinner for two. Watching the sunset with sand at your feet whilst listening to the sound of the ocean, life is perfect! Loving Zanzibar 😍

Hammocks, cocktails and wet feet! A peaceful stroll to this beautiful spot on the island. Fresh mango cocktail whilst chilling in a hammock and watching the local children fish for their evening meal, bliss 🍹
Man meets monkey! Loved watching this little fella outsmart the dogs. Brilliant entertainment whilst chilling on the beach 🐒
Nungwi, Zanzibar So we have officially discovered paradise! Found these Zebu chilling on the beach, I never even knew these creatures existed until today. They're beautiful and so placid. Having breakfast looking out onto this piece of paradise was idyllic. Picture perfect beach! 👌☀️
