Zanzibar Trip

Zanzibar between 5 Mar 2010 and 12 Mar 2010

Trip rating: Excellent
"We only booked part of our trip to Tanzania through Expert Africa - the final week (of three in total) on Zanzibar (we booked the rest elsewhere as we were climbing Kilimanjaro). We really enjoyed all three weeks - Tanzania is a great country to visit. The people are really friendly, the wildlife and countryside is amazing and the Swahili cuisine was delicious. Oh, and the sun shone while it was winter back in England! Zanzibar, with its beautiful beaches, was a great place to relax after a couple of more active weeks on the mainland. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would love to return one day.

Suggestions for improvement:

Not really - we were extremely impressed with the service we received and have already recommended Expert Africa to others. We had problems while we were way as our flights to and from Zanzibar were cancelled - Liz did an excellent job of helping sort out alternative travel, ensuring our honeymoon was not spoilt in anyway by these problems."

Dhow Palace Hotel

Dhow Palace Hotel

"Dhow Palace Hotel review"

2 nights Arrived 5 Mar 2010
"We really liked the way the hotel had been renovated and furnished - all those beautiful antiques! The staff were really friendly and helpful, Our room was great - and it was a nice touch to find a nice basket of fruit appeared as we were there on honeymoon!

The pool is really pretty and shady and was a godsend - it was so hot and humid when we arrived, compared to Arusha/Kilimanjaro area. I would definitely recommend people choose hotels in Stonetown with pool!"

Mchanga Beach Lodge, Zanzibar (this camp has since closed)

"Mchanga Beach Lodge review"

5 nights Arrived 7 Mar 2010
"We absolutely loved everything about Mchanga. Gloria and her staff were brilliant - very friendly and helpful at all times. The atmosphere was very laid back, relaxing and quiet - just what we needed to round off our honeymoon.

The food was really delicious - always plenty of it, sufficient choice and freshly prepared to order. I also developed an addiction to the coconut juice drinks the bar served!

The rooms are simple but that's part of their attraction. And all the little touches really make the stay - e.g. sarongs to use while there, tea waiting for you in the morning when you wake (with homemade biscuits), afternoon tea & coffee (with more homemade biscuits!), plenty of drinking water provided in the rooms, etc. etc. etc.!!!

We would definitely recommend it to couples looking for a quiet and beautiful place to relax."
