Town of South East Coast Zanzibar
Bwejuu - Bwejuu is a very nice little town - love the supermarket - the best we have seen on the Island.
We will definietly visit it again. It is quite central to all the nice swimming beaches and other resorts.
Also very close to Crazy Mzungo's Beach bar.

Fantastic place for a beautiful safari - Authentic environment, a lot of animals (many giraffes, impala's and elephants, crocodiles, hippos, buffalos, gnoes, ...), a beautiful river with crocodiles and hippos, many lodges in the park or in the neighbourhood of the main entrance. Selous is absolutely incredible and the place to be for a fantastic boatsafari, full day game drive or walking safari.
Town of North East Coast Zanzibar
Quiet than other torustic areas of Zanazibar - Matemwe is located on the North East of the island and is a quiet place with a very long and beautiful sandy beach. Recommended for couples of for people looking for a quiet rest; Scuba diving is good and would definitely recommend Scuba fish for those kind of activities.

An all around experience of culture and wildlife - Olduvai Gorge is a steep-sided ravine in the Great Rift Valley that stretches through eastern Africa. It is east of the Serengeti Plains in the Ngorongoro Conservation area, northern Tanzania and is about 48 km (30 mi) long. It is located 45 km (28 mi) from the Laetoli archaeological site. The name is a misspelling of Oldupai Gorge, which was adopted as the official name in 2005. Oldupai is the Maasai word for the wild sisal plant Sansevieria ehrenbergii, which grows in the gorge.
Olduvai Gorge is one of the most important paleoanthropological sites in the world and has been instrumental in furthering the understanding of early human evolution. This site was occupied by Homo habilis approximately 1.9 million years ago, Paranthropus boisei 1.8 million years ago, and Homo erectus 1.2 million years ago. Homo sapiens is dated to have occupied the site 17,000 years ago.
This site is also significant in showing increased developmental and social complexities in hominins. Evidence of this is shown in the production and use of stone tools, which indicates the increase in cognitive capacities. Evidence also indicates the practices of both scavenging and hunting, which are highlighted by the evidence of gnaw marks predating cut marks, and comparisons on percentages of meat versus plant in the early hominid diet. Furthermore, the collection of tools and animal remains in a central area is evidence of increases in social interaction and communal activity.
Ubuntu Camp is located in the area and the camp offers some great activities, i.e. game drives, game walks, a visit to a local village, waterfall walks overlooking Lake Eyasi and hikes in the mountains.
What makes the location of Ubuntu South so special is that is very “authentic and real”. It is a place where people and wildlife live together. It is a pure experience that is very different – with its blend between culture and animals. One can walk for hours in the mountains, overlooking lake Eyasi, finding hippos and the suddenly bump into children herding their cattle.
Ubuntu Camp has a lovely raised ridge that it sits on with an amazing view over the plains; it also has a lot of nice big trees with good shade and good bird life in camp.
The wildlife is plentiful incl. the migration (which is still close to camp), wild dogs, cheetahs, bat eared foxes, serval cats, hyenas, elephants, giraffe, very good birdlife and lots more.
