The next morning, we checked out of Ngalawa Hotel & Resort and were driven to Double Tree by Hilton, Stone Town for a networking session. We had lunch afterwards before embarking on a journey to another part of the island where we were to spend some time.

On the way, we stopped for the spice tour, after which we were split into specific buses going to the specific hotels we were allotted. I was on the bus to Karafuu Beach Resort & Spa with quite a few of my friends.

We arrived Karafuu Beach Resort & Spa just before 19:00hrs and were welcome with glasses of refreshing fruit juice. We were checked in and after freshening up we went to the restaurant for dinner. We stayed back chatting for a bit.

In the meantime, a local troupe provided entertainment with some dance and acrobatic displays. Some of us joined in the fun before returning to our rooms for a good night rest.
