Zanzibar Holiday

We returned from Zanzibar last weekend and would like to give some feedback on what was one of our most memorable holidays.

Ethiopian Airlines – We can only endorse the praise given in a previous Blog. On time. Great food. As comfortable as any long haul flight can be. Even the transit in Addis Ababa was no trouble and went smoothly. I had been put off travelling abroad due mainly to the constant delays and hassle that we encountered even before we had left England, however, travelling with Ethiopian Airlines was a breath of fresh air and we would certainly fly with them again, and recommend them to anyone.

Breezes Beach Club & Spa – We can not praise the Hotel highly enough, we loved everything about it. Food amazingly good. We rate it 5*.

Mizingani Seafront Hotel – It was very authentic and so different to anything we had stayed in before! We were pleased we had a more traditional hotel with some character rather than one of the bigger chain type hotels. The Hotel was clean, staff pleasant and helpful and the pool was very welcome.

Your Agent – Seyedi was our guide, a lovely man. Always on time, polite, helpful, informative, but not pushy. Unlike guides we have had on some other holidays, he did not try to sell us excursions or trips.

Zanzibar – An amazing country. Full of contradictions. Lovely people, very willing to help and very friendly. Lots of history, beautiful places to visit.
Zanzibar Travel – We have never been to Africa before. Zanzibar Travel made the whole booking experience easy. With their knowledge of Zanzibar/Africa they went the extra mile to make sure it was the right holiday for us, and provided appropriate information so we did not feel we were venturing in to the total unknown. Nothing was too much trouble. Michael & Natalie were accessible at all times and we were kept informed of any changes to flights, etc. Without sounding too ‘over the top’ Michael & Natalie at Zanzibar Travel have restored our faith and enthusiasm for foreign travel and for that, we thank you – we had a really great holiday.
