Sounds like an intro at an AA meeting 🙂 But no, I am not an alcoholic. I do have though a – let’s say infatuation, which is Zanzibar!
Born in Germany many moons ago, I spent 26 years in South Africa and found my final destination in Zanzibar. After six holidays I moved here permanently in 2011. I am truly blessed to live on my little dream island!
Yes, Zanzibar has the most beautiful powdery white sand beaches lined with coconut trees and the ever warm Indian Ocean with gentle waves (especially the east coast of Zanzibar is protected by a coral reef that keeps the big waves out and also sharks and any other undesirables). But the Zanzibaris make this island so very special: Zanzibaris smile with their eyes, genuinely, and welcome us foreigners with open arms and a hearty “Jambo” to their home – Zanzibar.
A while back I started a facebook page “Zanzibar Insider Buzz” with info, specials etc on Zanzibar, mainly for my friends and associates all over the world. It became so popular that I got many requests for information that is not easily found on the usual (commercial) websites. I then began to write a document covering all sorts of topics on Zanzibar. That document very quickly became too big and I had to find another portal.
That’s how this website was born. This is information on the island from my perspective, based on my knowledge and experiences made as a Zanzibar resident. I am humbled and excited that this blog was already viewed over 50,000 times since I published it in November 2014. This is obviously work in progress. Any questions about anything I haven’t covered yet are most welcome and information on these topics will be added to my webpage. Please keep those emails coming!
For current specials that I know of please visit my facebook page “Zanzibar Insider Buzz”.
Happy reading and enjoy exploring Zanzibar.
Sunny greetings and Karibu sana!
This short video was sent to me by Matthias who spent a week on the island in April 2016. Thank you Matthias. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/nKKqEnejVGw
