      Budget for 7 days in Zanzibar

      Zanzibar Island Oct 28, 2015 at 12:15 AM

      Hello, my husband, young daughter and I are going to Zanzibar for 7 days.
      All accommodations are booked and paid for, and include breakfast.
      How much should we take (US$) for lunch/dinner (5 days) and activities (7 days)?

      Also, can I exchange US$ in Zanzibar?


    • Itinerary for 7 days in Zanzibar?

      Zanzibar Island Oct 26, 2015 at 3:42 AM

      Hello! My wife and I are planning a week long stay in Zanzibar island at the end of November. We are young and adventurous but also want time to relax. Could you let us know if the itinerary is reasonable and not too hectic? He idea is to explore all the island has to offer from the north and east while also making time to explore Pemba Island.

      Days 1-3: Nungwi beach (snorkeling, quads, spice tour, Safari blue tour, night life)
      Days 3-5: Paja beach (kite surfing, drive to forest reserves)
      Days 6-7: Pemba island (snorkeling, exploring??)
      Day 7: Stone Town and departure

      Does this look ok or is too much? Do you have any suggestions on things we missed out or the order of the destinations?

      Luggage storage,etc

      by colares Online Now Jan 13, 2015 at 8:20 AM

      We will arrive at DAR from Europe with luggage more than 15kgs. After one night in DAR we have a flight to Zansibar, where only 15kgs are allowed. Has someone an idea, where to store luggage (on the airport) for 4 days?

      How much time to calculate by taxi from downtown hotel to the airport and how much will that cost?

      Thank you!

    • Guiding tour daily trip in Dar es Salaam

      by charlesangel Online Now May 29, 2012 at 12:44 AM

      Dear all,

      I am going to Dar es Salaam from late to end June for 10 days. Initially the plan is visiting my boyfriend whom is an expat just transfered the job in Dar, but now he might not be able to take the time off with me, so I might be just staying with him, but travel daily alone.

      I concern about the safety by traveling alone in Dar. Does anyone know if there is any daily local tour to take a group of people looking around the city? I search on the web but all tours are for more than one day providing hotel. I don't need to stay in a hotel as I will be staying with my bf. Just looking for a daily tour.

      For example, when I was in Beijing, China, I pay couple hundreds of RMB to join a group of people at the hotel going to the great wall, it was departed in the morning and back to the hotel in late afternoon. That's sort of the tour I am looking for.

      Thanks for the advise,

      by avarnil Online Now May 17, 2011 at 3:49 AM

      I'll be staying at Double Tree by Hilton for a couple of days.
      Is the area safe for a female to walk out on her own? What's around there? I know there's a slipway complex, is it near the hotel.
      Also, are there shops like mini marts where I can easily get Bottled Water and snacks around the hotel? Do they accept USD?

      I'll be there for business and would most probably not venture too far. ANything within 15 mins radius. :p
