Spice Tour and a night in Stone Town

Relaxing in Ngungwe

Arriving in Zanzibar

September 30th – Day Six Please note that on truck cleaning duty last night (the 29th) I managed to dunk my mobile phone in a bucket of water, and so far it hasn’t come back to life. As such any mobile communication is best directed to Keryn’s phone. Sunrise at the Silver Sands camp site […]

Arusha to Karatu

26th September – Day Two Today we find ourselves in Arusha. We arose around 7am after a noisy night, the neighbouring campsite packing up before 6am and the constant noise of trucks passing and dogs fighting keeping us up. Breakfast was served and again was very tasty. I had a shower in the only warmish […]
