My Zanzibar break in Jan 18

On this trip, I visited Kenya & Zanzibar between 17-Jan-2018 and 23-Jan-2018 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:


Actually rather disappointing. The trip notes were inadequate and despite assuring me that my coeliac condition had been passed to both Chumbe Island and Kholle Hotel, this was not the case. On the island that was not a problem as the food was mainly fish and salads but at the hotel it most certainly was a problem.

The Kholle House is a lovely boutique hotel but was not the most relaxing. see me earlier comments. Not what i expected. Very disappointed.

However the Lazizi hotel was a lovely but I did feel that the charges by Expert Africa for arranging this were high to excessive when looking at the hotel website.

Feedback response

We are sorry for the experience that this traveller had during her stay in Zanzibar. Expert Africa takes our travellers dietary requirements very seriously, and we always clearly communicate these to the relevant hotels. Kholle House and Chumbe Island Lodge confirmed that they understood her dietary requests, and that she was served a gluten free diet during her stay. We are sorry if she felt that there had been a miscommunication here.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
