The Italians have a saying “Mal d’Africa” which literally means “I hurt for Africa.” This because when they go there, they fall so in love with it that they yearn for it when they go back home. I never understood it of course, until I stepped foot there. It’s safe to say now that I definitely have that. Ho proprio il mal d’Africa♥
Another one of my favorite days and cities. I loved Zanzibar- the people, the culture their lifestyle- everything. Here are some photos of their little town. They dont have much and they live in little mud made homes, but don’t be fooled as they are the most grateful people on this earth. Always smiling and dancing- they don’t expect anything in life so they just live it to the fullest. Whenever good happens to them, they just smile and laugh some more. An incredibly magical place.
As we drove through the town of Zanzibar, 45 minutes later we arrived in the beach town of Kiwengwa where we stayed at the most beautiful, relaxing resort- Bluebay Beach Resort And Spa.
Once we arrived at the resort, my goddd it was so gorgeous!! They welcomed us right away with a Hibiscus welcome drink and a lavender refreshment towel. What service! We then went exploring- what a hotel.. it had tropical fruits everywhere, fruit trees, animals (cows haha wtf) and they even had a Christmas celebration with Santa, Mrs. Claus and some cake- it was really an incredible place and experience.
This is how gorgeous the Hotel & Resort was but wait until you see the beach… White Zanzibar Beach is breathtaking- pictures unfortunately don’t do it justice at all.. you will have to check out my Instagram too for the stories to see it live!! So beautiful.
After exploring the beautiful resort, drinking and eating our refreshments, we went straight to the beach! This beach, my god- WHITE, PURE WHITE, it was glorious. The tide was so low too that you could see all the starfish and sea urchins in the water. It made these little sand dunes too so you could walk the beach for miles!! There were little fisherman boats everywhere that took us to the middle to see all of this, it was so amazing. In the water you have the fisherman boats and on the sand, you would find all these African villages for shopping and eating fruits with the local people singing, dancing and carving cute little Christmas messages on the sand. It was full of cows on the beach here too hahaha I really don’t understand the obsession with cows everywhere but hey! When in Africa 🙂 It was a magical day- Zanzibar is so indescribable, you really have to see it for yourself. Zanzibar made Africa steal my heart♥
