After 10 days in Kenya, the trip to Zanzibar, Tanzania provided the rest and relaxation I needed. The Zanzibar archipelago lives up to its nickname as the “spice islands,” with cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, and nutmeg grown locally. Historically, Zanzibar Town was the main slave-trading port in East Africa, and had the world’s last open slave market until 1873. We explored the historic part of town on our last day.
Ryan and I took a round trip from Nairobi to Zanzibar Town, and took a taxi up the coast to Kendwa Rocks. We stayed on the island for four days and three nights.
