Zanzibar: beyond the paradise

By Daniel

After the very beautiful Safari trip we made our way (three days in buses and a ferry!) to the paradise of Zanzibar and were welcomed by very good vibes. All the stories I have heard about this island were about the beautiful beaches, palm trees and luxury resorts but once we set foot on Zanzibar we immediately felt there was much more to discover. We decide to do the thing that most people told us not to do and stay in Stone Town, the biggest ‘city’ of Zanzibar. Walking around the small alleyways and talking to local people we felt very welcome. Due to it being Ramadan, especially after sundown people came out to eat on the streets and have a good time. The next days we rented a motorbike to explore some more off-the-beaten-track parts of the island and we were not disappointed. Everywhere we drove, people greeted us with smiles and screamed Mambo! (hello!). We stopped along the way, talked to people, played soccer with the local kids, took a dip in the crystal clear waters and just had a really good time! I can keep talking but I rather show you the photos to let them speak! I hope you enjoy them 🙂

    As usual, gorgeous images and impressions. The very first one for me was the most magical, but all the others are just as beautiful and stunning. Did like the Massaï on the beach a lot too. Keep up the good work and thank you for sharing ! Waiting impatiently for the next reportage !

    ❤️ When I read your blogs I feel they are different more personal than any other blog out there. I can feel those peoples smiling at your camera being happy about their simple lives despite of any life conditions they have to live in. I wish I could be like them, I wish all people could be like them live they lives simply, happy! For me those kind of blogs are the best, they show me the kindness around the world and welcomes me to go out see it and meet those nice peoples and see their lives!?
