Zanzibar Island Trip - Photos

In December we took the ferry from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar, a beautiful two-hour ride on calm seas. While Diane slept, I went outside to enjoy the ocean and the warm winds. We stayed at guest quarters at the Catholic Cathedral in town and explored the streets a bit. It's a small historic city with a very Old World feel to it.

We did something very touristy -- we went on a "spice tour" to visit a farm where various kinds of spices are grown (along with fruits also). Zanzibar is known for this.

And we splurged on a stay at an idyllic beach cottage resort at Nungwi, which is at the very northern tip of the island. -Earl
