I cut the African safari a few days short and headed back to Los Angeles. Pete stuck around for a few more days and flew into Zanzibar from Arusha. I should have joined him and I should have also headed down to Dar es Salaam and flown home from there. I guess I'll need to include those stops in a larger Africa trip later in life.
Per Pete: "Stonetown, the capital and main hub of Zanzibar. The island has a huge historical past as a spice trading capital back in the day. Much can still be seen today in there markets. Stonetown is on the UNESCO World Heritage site and is a beautiful, historic town."
Per Pete: "Maybe the bluest water I've ever seen...Jambiani is paradise. A small fishing village an hour and half from the capital, Stonetown, it is a great location to chill out for a few days...months...whenever. Other than a few small hotels and the locals, there was not too much else out there. This was a great spot, and Zanzibar should try to be included in your trip to Tanzania."
