I am honeymooning in Pemba in September (Diving as much as possible) and have just heard about the latest attack in the region off of Africas East Coast.
I've read of a fair few incidents in the region ranging from shooting, piracy, theft etc.
Does anyone know first hand what its like out there.
Is it just one of those things that should be kept in perspective - or should we avoid the area all together.
PLEASE HELP - ANY ADVICE WILL BE GRATEFULLY RECEIVED.
Thanks for that. I've seen that report and several on the bbc site. I know they weren't diving which is even worse for me - We're doing the postcard honeymoon thing with a secluded bungalow on the beach so we're potentially vulnerable day and night!
Just cant seem to get any decent info on it anywhere!
I'm from South Africa and I can never understand why Westerners want to believe their value systems and idiologies exist in Africa???? It's Africa, it dangerous, don't go there without a gun, actually make sure it's an automatic too...........simple.
