Zanzibar beaches

we take a break from the animals to give you a taste of Zanzibar’s beaches, well worth the visit if you are ever in East Africa! Here is what it looked like on arrival.

pretty stoked after being on planes for a day.

the sunsets!

when you need to cool off and don’t want beer, the ginger soda named Stoney Tangawizi (how is this not a name for marijuana?), is your best bet.

lots of time to relax and read in the sun (no sponsorship from amazon to disclose)

there were a few boats around, but none seemed to be going anywhere fast, especially the sailboats trying to sail with no wind…

the locals were actually pretty good beach volleyball players.

next up, baby elephants!
