We went to Tanzania to see wild animals in their own habitat which was very amazing then we went to the Island of Pemba.On the 15th of August we arrived at the small port of Makoani after a ferry trip from Zanzibar Old town we were greeted by prince the manager of the hotel and gave us a ride to the hotel.After a cup of tea we were shown our rooms,Ican't find the exact words,very nice and tidy the balcony is overlooking the vast ocean,the room has got a glass sliding doors that you can watch sun setting or stars at night while on your bed there is a ceiling fan and air condition as well however we couldn't use both as the weather was a bit cool.We had a nice hot water bath in the morning very refreshing,the food was very nice and cooked according to your recipe.The trip to Misali organised by Hotel Manager is a thing that will live in my memory,glass clear water and abundance of the species!!
The staffs were very friendly and ready to help every time, we enjoyed a lot
