Fifteen minute’s drive out of Stone Town is a place called Bububu, named after the sound that the train whistles used to make as they passed through in a by gone era.
The old Sultan’s Palace is now the home of the Creative Education Foundation run by Judi Palmer and headmaster Dorian Keller www.cefzanzibar.com/
Our directions to get there were: take the mud road where they repair tyres, drive down the track trough lots of banana trees until you see the sea and look out for an old Zanzibarian door.

Headmaster Dorian loves his work and is busy most days teaching a class of 8 year olds as
well as training a group of Zanzibarian teachers. Dorian is a talented photographer
and took some fabulous photos during the workshop.
The workshop is for children and parents, they are a lovely creative group and the leaf cards were very popular. The palace gardens, called Salome’s Garden, run down to the sea and provide lots of plant material for our monoprinting workshop.
Has the rainy season come early this year?
