Indigo Bay Dining

Spectacular restaurants and characterful bars with original walls dating back to early Portuguese traders may provide the focus of Indigo Bay’s guest areas but dining is by no means limited to these locales. Romantic dinners on the beach or by the pool and picnics in the sand dunes or on Paradise Island are some of the options available but the one constant at Indigo Bay is the delicious fresh seafood. From lobster and calamari to yellow fin tuna caught by the guests themselves it is all expertly prepared by the resorts chefs and served with fruit and vegetables grown on the island.

One of the most popular dishes at Indigo Bay has to be the crab curry and we’ve got hold of the recipe so you can try recreating it for yourself.

Recipe For Crab Curry

1 kg cleaned crab,
1 onion,
4 cloves garlic,
1 normal sized chopped tomato,
Bay leaf and a head of ginger, minced

2 level teaspoons rajah curry powder

    Exploring Tanzanias Northern Circuit

    It had been a few years since my last visit to Northern Tanzania, an area on many people’s bucket list, and an area with names that evoke all sorts of emotions. My memories of my first visit to Tanzania, about 20 years ago, are still with me – particularly the cheetah sighting in the tall grass of the Serengeti, when the cubs got told off by their Mum, because she lost the Tommy she had just caught for their dinner, as they were otherwise occupied with some rough and tumble.
