I first learned about Zanzibar several years ago when my Mom was planning a visit for a work conference. I flew stand by for over 24 hours from the US just to spend 3 or 4 days on the glorious island and essentially crashed the conference. Though extremely short, the experience left a major impression on me back then and was one of my first inspirations for starting this website. Fast forward a few years and not only was I able to come back and spend some real time (I stayed just under a month for this trip) soaking everything in and doing all the things I didn’t get a chance to do the first time around, but I came in partnership with Summersalt – so I wasn’t piggybacking on someone else’s trip. If like me you’re a foodie, culture lover, and adventurer but still enjoy beautiful beaches you can relax on, Zanzibar is definitely for you. Read on for some of my highlights and to hopefully get inspiration for your own visit.
