  • I want to warn against services firm Zanzi Tours. Far from the 5 tours and their organization! And the prices are not the cheapest, as stated. The truth is that among most of the proposals still cheaper. We took several trips and only one I have no comments. This Safari Blue, all recommend. With the rest of the tours ... Enticing description of nature, fields and farms of Zanzibar, a ride on an ATV, inspired us, and we hit the road. It was Paris-Dakar rally. Only than were busy head and look is expensive and maneuvering on the holes with the threat at any moment to fall from the vehicle. Understandably, all beauty remained outside. Visit any farms was not once was a stop in the box, where on the one hand was the sugar cane, with other land not cultivated. Accompanying guide us, the recent student, rejoiced that the very first time riding a quad bike and a special case before us was not. They came into the village, where our guides (there were 2, one Russian-speaking.

  • Absolutely an excursion to do, the sea of wonderful colors, the language of white sand of blinds, then normally the excursion includes a barbecue on the beach with fresh fish and lobsters, truly a goodness. The downside is that you do everything in a hurry (since the atoll appears and disappears according to the tides) and is super busy. the guide who drove us is called Ali Baaba Mohd and arranged everything in the best way if you want to find on Facebook the contact information.
