[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The only Mangrove swamp in Zanzibar is near Jambiani on the South-East Coast.

Mangroves are strange trees that have intricate root systems above the ground that actually hold the tree up. Because the swamp is in ‘brackish water’, a mixture of sea salt water and fresh, the Mangroves grow as an extension of a mother tree. The seeds cannot grow in the water, so it must use this unique process to reproduce.

Hello Deon,
You have nicely presented Mangrove.Yes it is an amazing kind of forest.Where I live in this state there is a Mangrove area which is called 'Sundarban'.Nice natural colour and well sharpness.Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards,

Hi Deon,
To me it looks eerie and it feels like a crocodile or an alligator might be lurking in the swamps(but that's just me) but it still is a beautiful place and must be very interesting to see and photograph. Great capture! Have a great weekend.
