My Feb 2013 trip

On this trip, I visited Zanzibar between 7-Feb-2013 and 16-Feb-2013 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Trip was great, all connections and reservations were carried out seamlessly and on time. One miscommunication on a side tour was corrected to our satisfaction. Eco and Culture transfer vehicles and drivers were excellent, safe, and on time.

It's unfortunate that the local people don't take more effort to keep the trash cleaned up. Plastic bags should be banned as they are in Rwanda. Southern part of the island is cleaner, more green and tropical looking, and a little less humid.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
