First of all I want to thank the chef of Samaki. The food was wonderful, well cooked, well presented and delicious. I've enjoyed the pool too much, great swimmings with my son. A big hug to giuseppe in the reception, thank you all for the nice stay.

We spent 4 weeks travelling around Africa. Our time at Zanzibar was supposed to be the restful part of the trip. We certainly did get some rest while were there but it wasn't what we were hoping for.
