    Ending our journey with Dream of Zanzibar could not have been any more perfect in finishing up our awesome safari. James and I were just in awe at the location, the property, amenities, etc… I don’t know if you specified a Junior Suite for us there, but that’s what we got – and it was perfect! With an awesome oceanview to boot. The transfer driver was pleasant and courteous. We did have enough energy to take in a 3 hour city tour of historic Stone Town before going up to the resort. Good thing we did it on arrival – cause we didn’t really want to leave the resort. We needed those days of solitude and relaxation.
