The idea was to spend a week of leisure in Zanzibar. I had read about wildlife safaris and was intrigued with the idea to do it so I started researching. It seemed that the best beach in Zanzibar is in Pongwe and the lodge to stay, the Pongwe Beach Hotel, but the only way to book it in February was through Africa Travel Resource, an English travel agency specializing in east Africa. I contacted them and it proved that Tracey was very helpful in putting together a travel itinerary that fitted the beach, bush and beach profile that I was looking for. It is pricey, but I did not regret it. After two weeks of emails and phone calls, Tracey built a great schedule that turned into a wonderful trip. If I had to do it again, I would spend more time in Serengeti and less in Zanzibar as the safari proved to be a life changing experience. It was this trip that inspired my love for Africa and wildlife, a desire to travel more and the decision to go further with my photography.
