Ikuka to Zanzibar

As sad as we were to have to leave Ikuka we were a little glad to have an excuse not to get up at 5am on our last morning. We did have to rise early for breakfast at the lodge but the bonus was getting to see the sun rise from our room. 
Gemma made use of the sunrise to take a lovely bath with a view!
We headed to the lodge one last time to have our breakfast there before setting out on one last little drive before our flight.
Once we made it to the "airport" landing strip we said our goodbye's and hopped on our tiny plane headed for the island of Zanzibar.
The flight lasted about 3 hours and then we landed in Zanzibar with an hour and a half drive up to the north end of the island to our resort. We were so happy to arrive at Zuri. After a long travel day and some confusion about room assignments we made our way to this infiniti pool! The water was pretty cool but it didn't stop these two girls!
The view of the sunset from the pool was pretty spectacular. 
Then finally our room assignments got sorted out thanks to Grampy and a call to London! We were able to shower and change for dinner.  Arrival cocktails were much appreciated.
The dining room was lovely and the decor everywhere was stunning. We had a buffet dinner with sushi and everyone was pleased!!
When we returned to our room for the night turn down service had arrived and we were met with this beautiful bed. The girls had an adjoining room to ours connected by a small corridor.
We were going to enjoy sleeping in and relaxing on the beach here!
