the experience at Upepo was amazing! it is a very special local place where, if you love to get in touch with the local people and culture, you can not avoid to fall in love with it. we stayed10 days and we had the bungalow just few steps away from the ocean. while we were sleeping you could feel and hear the ocean ...amazing!
the food is daily handmade and the menu changes every day....we had different delicious fishes every day! one day we also did the cooking course, and we learned 2 local dishes...so much fun and good recipes!!! the staff is friendly and very welcoming....we loved spending time chatting with Shareef, Fatma (Karen's name at Zanzibar) and Rasta!
the place is simple, small, and has not much around, so if you look for relax, nature, chilled atmosphere...it is the right place to be... I would suggest it to free travellers....not to people who looks for places with lots of amenities or entertainment options for the night.
