A Boat Ride to Changuu Island

The first question every tour guide asks you when you walk around Stone Town is, do you want to go to Prison Island? Changuu Island is called Prison Island because ages ago all those with yellow fever cases were quarantined on the island to separate them from the population of Zanzibar but no prisoners were…

Gone Fishing to Lower Zambezi

The rainy season is now over which means most of the remote lodges and resorts are officially open and back in business.

Feeding Time with the Park Giraffes

Every morning I had breakfast with the most splendid view of the swimming pool combined with blue skies which was just lush to look at.

Art Plus Wildlife Gaze at the Avani Resort Hotel

A common misconception is that many view the planet’s second-largest continent, composed of 54 countries, as a single country. These types of perceptions and misconceptions are perpetuated both in the media and in…
