    MY BOOTS - AFTER ZANZIBAR

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear:
    A GOOD PAIR OF BOOTS!

    Walking around Zanzibar is a fantastic way to see everything, but you get plenty of hazards. Natural ones are the usual rocks, vines, animal droppings, etc. Manmade items like glass and other rubbish make an appearance from time to time. And if that wasn’t enough – the rainy season will make you want those quick dry light hiking boots!

    Miscellaneous:
    A GOOD BOOK OR TWO

    Get a good Guidebook for sure. Sometimes it helps make sense of it all. Also, some local 'guides' are not that adept and you may want a bit more of the story. Bring a few to leave behind. If you can leave anything about the wildlife of Tanzania, fantastic. Many people are too poor to see some of the riches of their own country. They really appreciate “seeing” other parts of the country and the wildlife not native to Zanzibar.

    And don't forget. Leave any books you have read in the 'Library' of your hotel for other tourists
    Please!
