I didn't arrive at Zanzest in the best state. Tired from a long flight and irritated by an inefficient visa application left me ready to explode. Until I got there! The charming Bungalows are situated right on the most picturesque bay. The sea and beach are amazing. Truly post card stuff. The accommodation is basic but clean, but offers everything you' want for 15 pounds per night. The bar is well stocked and situated in a beautiful beach hut with a thatched roof and white, sandy floor. The food is great too, and I have been kept happy (an full) for the week in which I've been here. However, what absolutely trumps everything mentioned above is the characters that run the place! The guys here are the most genuinely nice, funny and welcoming blokes I've ever met on holiday. I've never had such a laugh with the staff before and I'd like to think I've made some genuine friends who I know I'll never forget. The whole package simply results in a no no-nesense, genuine African experience. I'd recommend Zanzest to anyone wanting a true taste of Zanzibar
