As you might already know, Natelee our other main photographer at ZaraZoo tied the knot in January at Festa in Wellington – Have a look at her wedding photos done by Yolande Marx.
Natelee and Barry already had their house sorted out, so instead they opted for a honeymoon registry whereby guests could contribute and pay the way to an exotic honeymoon in Zanzibar – what a cool idea!
Zanzibar is only a short 3-hour flight from Johannesburg, now an established route operated by Mango Airlines – Yes paradise is just a short trip in an orange jet away!
You know that you’re a real photographer when you carry a camera with you, always, even on your honeymoon… Natelee did just that and here is a collection of the beautiful photos she took during their 8 days on the Island of Zanzibar. Read her own recollection of the trip in the next column.
Fantastic Photos by a very talented photographer – my point of view.
“Out of the 8 days there, for 6 of the days, we literally just chilled at the hotel around the swimming pool – quite a nice change from sitting in front of Lightroom for 8 hours a day!
On the 2 other days we explored the island with The Rock, a restaurant (complete with WIFI) on a very small island being the highlight. We also did a spice tour, took a boat to Prison Island where we saw some giant tortoises and strolled through Stone Town, the only functioning ancient African town in the world.
We also joined another honeymoon couple for a fantastic snorkeling experience – stunning! What struck me was the big difference in high and low tides with the sea retreating for a kilometer or more and local women flocking to collect seafood and octopus during low tide.
Hotel Tip for Zanzibar – Make sure you get the best beach and swimming pool spot by getting up early each morning to “book” your chairs by placing an item like flip flops or towels on them – never mind you only returning 3 hours later – its booked!
Hope you enjoy the photos!”
