I topped off my safari in Kenya and Tanzania with 5 days of bliss on the gorgeous island of Zanzibar, which was the most perfect way to end the holiday. My safari was absolutely incredible but after camping for 11 days and getting up at about 5am for early morning game drives, I was ready for some serious r&r and a nice comfy bed!
I stayed in Nungwi on the north coast of Zanzibar which is really laid back, with a stunning beach and a handful of cool beach bars. My favorite haunt was Cinnamon Cocktail Bar, the food and cocktails are to die for and it’s the best place to watch the sunset. The craft markets in Nungwi are perfect for souvenir shopping and it’s a top spot for diving and snorkelling, although watch out for the jellyfish!
