My August Trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 19-Aug-2017 and 28-Aug-2017 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Would have liked to know my options when travelling to Zanzibar as I was unaware that Stone Town was the only big town in Zanzibar! Perhaps I should have done more research myself, but having only one choice of hotel in Zanzibar seems somewhat limiting!

Lake Manze was a delight and the highlight of our trip.

Thanks again.

Feedback response

We try hard to explain the range of options to our travellers, whatever the trip; we're sorry if we fell short here. We tried hard to find a good beach option for these travellers, within their budget constraints and what was available at the time. However, clearly we hadn’t understood the importance of ‘visiting a town’ for their trip.

It’s a good point: most of Zanzibar's best beach locations are a distance from Stone Town, and this is something that we’ll flag up more clearly to enquirers in the future.
