Zanzibar

I just don't like winter, so in the absence of the warmth and sunshine I long for, I'm going to recall a gorgeous holiday I had in Zanzibar in 2013. It was actually a safari holiday with a week on the beach at the end. The safari was in Tanzania visiting the Selous National Park. It was my first safari and whilst I was disappointed with not seeing many animals it was a good introduction to a safari holiday. The camp was outside the National Park and therefore we didn't enter until about 9 and had to leave before sunset, both times of day when animals are most active. My next safari was inside a park (more about that later). At Selous I stayed at the Selous Riverside Safari Camp, a lovely camp with excellent accomodation and very good attentive (without being in the way) staff. At the end of the safari I flew over to Zanzibar to stay at the beautiful Echo Beach hotel http://www.echobeachhotel.com

  1. The accommodation looks fantastic Polly, such a shame about the viewing times though.. You are so right about the animals movement. We used to watch them when we went to Karriba Dam (Central Africa) it was awesome watching very early morning and as the sun was going down.

  3. Hello Grace, the week in Zanzibar was fantastic which sort of made up for the disappointment, but my next safari to Zambia more than made up for it. I will blog about that soon x
