Twas the night before Christmas when all through Africa Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

Well okay not quiet but this is our African Christmas….

Africa suddenly stops and forms a huge “human migration” for the Christmas and New Year period.

Just as the great animal migration swarms so does the African population (that is we should say for those who are not in the tourism industry) so hordes of children, parents, grand parents, elders & warriors migrate to various villages in Africa.

Public transport suddenly becomes crazy as prices go through the roof, seats become rare to the point that these African busses become incredibly over crowded (and also sometimes dangerous) all in an effort to get to their villages.

December 25th is usually a fun filled day, beginning with church events for the Christian population, families gather in the sun and heat (you won’t find a chubby father Christmas in red suit and snowy boots here!) children having fun and laughing playing games.

They gather together to slaughter a goat then to share a meal with traditional Pilau Rice, but this is done is sobriety, without the excessive consumer society tricks.

The average families will not have 5 presents per child under the Christmas tree, instead the day is filled with typical African music, enough food and meat to fill up the tummies of everyone there, with a soda to wash it down, it is this togetherness that will certainly put a smile on the little faces, being together, dancing, chatting and sharing is the African Christmas day.

Of course not everyone celebrates this way, for us in the Tourism trade, it is not a time to stay at home and enjoy this relaxed time, oh no for us it is the peak season.

All of our teams are deployed, on the Kili, the National Parks into camps and lodges, where it is now nearly impossible to book a hotel in Zanzibar at this time of year!

For us the spirit of Xmas is for our guests to enjoy!
