Sitting at the bar Mercury's in Zanzibar, we waited to meet up with some of our friends who arrived via boat in Stone Town (also called Zanzibar Town), the capital. Mercury's is a tribute to Zanzibar native Farouk Balsara, who eventually became Freddy Mercury, the lead singer of Queen. The name Zanzibar means 'Land of the Blacks' and originates from the Arabic words 'Zinj' meaning black and 'barr' meaning land. There are a few more photos from the safari, but I decided to move on for now and will return in a bit.
