More about Bwejuu Beach ......

The 10km beach between Bwejuu and Jambiani Village starts relaxed and low key north of Bwejuu, swells with backpackers and kite surfers in Paje, then tapers off gradually into equally understated Jambiani. There’s plenty of excellent midrange and budget accommodation available, though only a handful of resorts that would qualify as exclusive. This stretch of coastline attracts families and a younger crowd, split between the quieter beaches to the north and south, and the relaxed beach bars, restaurants and water sports of Paje.

Highlights

Serious kitesurfing: Paje is Zanzibar’s hottest kitesurfing destination and there are a number of well-run kitesurfing schools offering lessons and rentals. Paje’s lagoon is ideal for kitesurfing, and some operators also offer organised excursions to scenic kiting spots up and down the coast.

 

Wonderful snorkelling: The coral lagoon in front of Paje and Jambiani is particularly wide and beautiful, even by Zanzibar’s extraordinary standards. Masks and fins can be hired for a few dollars from just about any hotel along the strip. Just keep an eye on the tide or you’ll have a long walk back to the beach.

Travel tips

If you are into kitesurfing (or wish to avoid the crowds) note that the main seasons are between December and March and May to October. Some rental businesses close completely out of season, although there’s generally enough of a breeze to satisfy beginners year-round.

Safari and Zanzibar Extensions

Tanzania offers a winning combination: some of Africa’s best wildlife safaris plus stunning tropical beaches. Besides the Serengeti’s famous wildebeest migration, there are other world-class safari locations here. For wildlife safaris in Tanzania, consider three areas: the famous ‘northern circuit’, the wild parks in the south, and the remote parks of western Tanzania:

  • Tanzania’s ‘northern circuit’ is the country’s wildlife showpiece. The great Serengeti hosts what many would call the best wildlife safari in Africa: the migration of around 1.5million of wildebeest. Nearby Ngorongoro Conservation AreaLake Manyara National Park and Tarangire National Park all provide outstanding wildlife safaris. However, all can also be very busy with people.
  • In southern TanzaniaSelous Game Reserve is arguably the largest in Africa, and combines well with the hotter, drier Ruaha National Park. Both offer very authentic wilderness experiences, based out of small lodges using open-topped 4WDs – and so vie for the accolade of the best wildlife safari in Tanzania.
  • Western Tanzania appeals for superb and contrasting wildlife safari experiences, with only a few other travellers around. ‘Old Africa hands’ will gravitate to the buffalo and lion in Katavi National Park or the chimpanzees in the thickly-forested Mahale Mountains National Park. However, it usually takes more time and expense to reach these parks than the north or south of the country.

Climb Kilimanjaro from Zanzbar

The Lemosho Route is often considered the most beautiful of all the trekking trails up Mount Kilimanjaro. It is one of the newer routes on the mountain and shares a portion of the same path as Machame route, although it holds a few advantages over that route that definitely make worth considering, particularly for travelers who have some extra time. Starting the western flanks of Mount Kilimanjaro at the Londorossi Gate, the Lemosho Route wanders its way up one of the more remote sections of the mountain. The trail takes hikers through a beautiful rain forest where they might have the chance to spot wildlife along the way. From there, the path wanders out onto the Shira Plateau, crossing it from west to east on relatively flat and easy to walk terrain.

It is the “coolest” from June to August, the highest temperatures are around 30° C, while in the other months it is definitely well over thirty degrees. The nightly low temperatures range between 23 and 25 degrees in the course of the year, but can drop, albeit rarely, to just under 20 degrees in the cooler months. The driest time in Zanzibar is between June and October and in January and February with two to five rainy days per month.

Pictures of buildings and scenery, including people, can be taken any time. It is however strictly prohibited to take pictures of governmental buildings, persons or vehicles.

Most Western countries have a rather liberal and casual attitude when it comes to clothing. Zanzibar dress code, as required by Islam on the other hand, is a more conservative minimum dress code for both, men and women.

I belive Kendwa has the better beach, and the deeper water on the north-western strip means swimming is possible throughout the day; the island’s eastern beaches are almost all tide dependent.
