On the 27th we began our rather long journey to Zanzibar Island. We had one full day of driving for about 8 hours, the drive was pleasent enough, the roads were not too bad and the landscape was quite nice. We managed to spot Kiliamanjaro through the clouds at one point as well. After stopping for the night (in god knows where) we set off at 5am the next day for yet another long journey to Dar Es Salaam.
Dar Es Salaam is the business capital of Tanzania and heavily Muslim. We found this out after the dirty looks we received because we had our shoulders showing. The town was packed full of people, very colourful place but not particularly somewhere I would like to walk through. We stayed at a campsite in Dar Es Salaam on the beach that day, we also realised once we got to the campsite our tail lights off the truck had been stolen while we had been driving through Dar Es Salaam. That was a clear enough indication that were not to leave the campsite, that and all the signs that suggested it is not safe. The Dar Es Salaam camp was roped off on the beach area and there were Masai guards, we were warned that if we left we would without question be robbed.
We had a nice afternoon in the pool and at the beach, was nice to have some chill time after a busy week.
