Sunset Cruise – One life jacket…plenty of Rum and Coke

I spent two nights at the Amaan Bungalows in Nungwi, Zanzibar and an optional activity through my G Adventures 35 day Overland Truck adventure was a two-hour Sunset Cruise with all you can drink beer and Rum & Coke, followed by a fish dinner on the beach with a bonfire, for $35.  Although I didn’t have any preconceived ideas of what it would be like, when I approached the boat, I have to admit I thought it seemed a bit rickety or primitive…

There was one life jacket, but plenty of drinks!!

Unfortunately, when the two young Danish girls were getting onto the boat, the wood was wet and one of them…Kikki…slipped and hurt her foot.  Here she is with her foot propped up…

Here’s our driver…James and another G Adventures Tour Director in training.

I spent the two hours on the second level with these fellow travelers…

and here is my roommate…Suzanne…

Cheers!!

That night after the cruise, we had a great time on the beach…eating, drinking and dancing!  It was so much fun…I don’t have any photos!!

Paradise in Nungwi, Zanzibar

The seaside town of Nungwi on the Island of Zanzibar is absolutely gorgeous!  With only three days left of my G Adventures 35 day Overland Truck tour through six countries in Africa, I was ready for some relaxation!  After a two-hour spice plantation tour, we headed to the Amaan Bungalows in Nungwi.

I thought this was pretty cool…underwater Yoga!

Here’s the garbage man with the odd looking cow…

It didn’t take me long to hit the beach…my first time in the Indian Ocean!

Here are two Russian girls that had joined our group…

And a sight I’ve not encountered anywhere else…Masai Mara on the beach!  And looking quite dashing!!

As usual, the sunset was gorgeous in Africa…

That evening I played pool with some of the people from our group and our Tour Director and Driver…Jess and James.  We had a great time!!

Nungwi, Zanzibar is stunning!
