About

This trip leaves from Washington DC (IAD) where our flight leaves at 6pm on the 12th. We will fly to Nairobi Kenya nonstop, it's a long flight (around 10 hours) where we are scheduled to arrive in Accra on the evening of the 13th.

We will spend a couple days in Nairobi with a local guide! 

If you love animals, we will check out the giraffe centre, meet some elephants and enjoy nature. We will also visit the market on our city tour and learn all about the culture.

From there we will head back to the airport and fly to Zanzibar. 

The island has beautiful beaches that we will explore. We will check out stone town area, shop in the market, check out the Jozani Forest.

There are lots of water/ beach activities (scuba, snorkel, kiteboarding, surfing, and paddle boarding).

This is going to be an amazing trip with a mixture of city, safari/ nature and beaches. We will do lots of exciting things but there will be some relaxation involved.
