  • Week 608/07/19 We left Arusha at 8/8.30 and headed to Moshi, the town at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro. The bus we got on did about 3-4 laps of the bus station as it filled up. I’ve really no idea why. Maybe Posted by katiebeckett in Returning to Africa 2019 | Jul 13, 2019

  • Spices, slavery and Freddie MercuryBreakfast is served in the large open dining and sitting area of Hiliki House on the first floor.

  • "You know why I am a rich man???"What a wonderful way to start the day: sunshine, walking out into lovely gardens and sitting out on the terrace of the lodge.

  • "You will sleep like a baby."Zanzibar, what a name. It breathes something exotic, just these letters put together, Z-A-N-Z-I-B-A-R.
