Travel reviews by Mr D from Bournemouth

Zanzibar and Mafia

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 3-Feb-2008 and 14-Feb-2008 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:


The islands of Zanzibar and Mafia are beautiful and intriguing, however they do not even compare to the wonders that you will find when you actually get into the sea. The Snorkeling here is some of the best I have ever seen and I got to swim with Dolphins too.

The local people are very pleasant, respectful and elegant.

I very much enjoyed their hospitality I felt very safe, well looked after and had a few magical days that I will always treasure.
