Dear Rose,

 

Please find attached some photos.  The snorkeling was the highlight.  The photos was taken at the Mnemba atoll.  There was a lot of fish.  The videos I have taken gives a better indication of what it was like.  We would like to go there again in ~2 years time.  For now I am saving for one of your safari tours in the Serengeti.

 

Thank you for the arrangements.  Everything was perfect.  Dreamworld adventures and Kilima Kidogo were recommended to me and I will also recommend it to others.

 

Regards,

Elvera

Dear Dawie

 

After having returned from Zanzibar, it was back to work and no time to even remember the lovely holiday we had had.  I did browse though the photos and of course it is almost impossible to find a really nice one of all three of us, so thought would send one of Cara and Ianthe sipping sugar cane juice at the Forodhani Gardens while waiting for the seafood extravaganza!  We loved the West Coast for all the buzz and for being so close to things.  From Mtoni Marine we visited Stone Town three times - once we walked there - an hour trek but really interesting and made us feel as if we were really visiting and not just zoomng by with tour guides.  On the second occasion we caught a dala-dala. We would stay till late and then get a taxi back home.  Three women on their own and never felt threatened or intimidated once.  From Mtoni Marine we were also able to walk to the Maharubi Palace Ruins and visit the Mtoni Ruins on our own and always enjoyed doing it that way.  Did the usual Spice Tour, Prison Island trip, guided tour of Stone Town &  Jozani Forest.  Also enjoyed the two days at Kilima Kidogo - here Ianthe got to swim with the dolphins - has always wanted to do that.  Liked how a tour operator came to the guesthouse each evening to find out if there was anything the guests wanted to do.  And he never made one feel pressurised.  We also hired bikes from him and cycled up the coast.  Loved the reflexology treatment in the open air spa.

 

In conclusion - we should have stayed for 10 days!  Never went for a trip on a dhow and never got to the Northern part of the island either.  But maybe that means we must come back again.  Thanks so much for everything efficiently organised, including organising our visas here - lovely to just walk past the queues of people who had to complete visas there and not have to take out dollars there to pay for them. We really appreciate everything.

Dear Rose - Thanks for your help in making this trip such a special one! Everything has been done both professionally and personally on the part of the Dreamworld group, and that's a rare combination.

 

I have included a final picture Dina took. I am on the left, my daughter-in-law Linda next, our friend Doreen and my daughter Suellen on the right.

 

We had an uneventful trip, the best kind, except that the 1Time plane could not refuel in Zanzibar so we had to land again in Dar on the way back, making for a 2 hour delay. But thankfully, having traveled many years in Central Africa, I had allowed for that possibility, so we made our flight to Cape Town with no problems.

 

We all totally enjoyed Kilima Kidogo. The staff were personable and Dina is one-of-a-kind, as I am sure you know. We inadvertently chose what must be the best time of the year weather wise. Dina arranged tours to Stone Town and spice farm, accompanied us, and we had wonderful food both places.

 

I will definitely go back, and will definitely be using Dreamworld whenever/wherever I travel in Africa.

Thanks again, Carolyn

Hi Dawie

Wil net se baie dankie vir die vakansie van n leeftyd by Kilima kidogo.  Dina en haar staff was besonders en dit het nogal heelwat gevat om my vrou te kry om te pak vir die terug kom.

Ons het alreeds besluit dat ons verseker weer ZNZ toe sal gaan en definitief weer van jul dienste gebruik sal maak te danke aan julle het alles seepglad verloop.

Groete

Beste Dawie

 

Ek wou al eerder ‘n e-pos gestuur het om baie dankie te sê vir al die reelings vir my en my man se vakansie in Zanzibar. Dit was regtig baie lekker, veral die verblyf by Kilima Kidogo en ons gasvrou Dina was wonderlik. Dit was ‘n vakansie wat ons vir altyd sal onthou ten spyte daarvan dat die eiland nie krag gehad het nie en ons ‘n bietjie swaar gekry het in die aande met die hitte omdat die lugreelings nie kon werk nie. Koue drinkgoed was ook min en met grade in die veertigs het ons gesukkel om die dors te les. Maar ons het die beste daarvan gemaak en al die ander ondervindinge het daarvoor opgemaak.

 

Nogmaals dankie vir al die reelings, alles het vlot verloop en sal definitief weer van jul dienste gebruik maak sou die geleentheid om voordoen.

 

Aangeheg ‘n foto van my en my man, Hennie, op Prison Island.

 

Baie groete

Hello Dawie,

This email is way overdue! But I would just like to say thank you so much for one of the best holidays ever!

Towards the end of last year we couldn’t wait for someone to ask the question “what are you doing in December?” which we would respond with great joy and pleasure “ZANZIBAR” and then look at everyone’s little jealous faces, and yes, they should have been, because it was one of the best holidays of my life.
It was a quick and painless flight and before we knew if we had landed in the extremely hot, humid and crowded airport.
I have to say that the airport was quite an experience and an eye opener and I just had to look around and be grateful to OR TAMBO!

We were met by Dina from Kilima Kidogo and off went through the crowded streets to paradise....

WOW! WOW! WOW! Thank you for booking us in paradise! Kilima Kidogo is such a wonderful, comfortable, relaxing and spacious guest house with the most hospitable & amazing people and just to top it was right on the beach!  It was amazing! The food, the people, the location, everything was just amazing!
There was so much to do from the Jozini Forests with the monkeys, Spice tours with Mr Spice, The Dolphin Diving, The 3 Island Tour, Stonetown for some history, and then for the when you wanted to relax we had our outdoor Spa on our beach or you could grab a book and put your feet up and lie back on the hammocks and enjoy the sunsets. 

So thank you so much Dawie for all your help and co-ordinating for a hassle free holiday in paradise. 

We will definitely be going back!
Lauren Freeman
