Me and a friend want to visit Zanzibar in late Feb - Early March.
We are really keen to get a 4x4 and travel around the island. We are both rather spontaneous and love to explore.
Ideally we would like to play it by ear. Perhaps book accommodation for the first two nights but then have the freedom to travel and choose which area we want to stay and for how long.
Is that possible?
Will it be difficult to find available/affordable hotels / bungalows on the day?
Are we going to get a better deal booking online in advance?
Based on the forums here, http://www.zanzibarcarhire.com seems to be the most reliable place to get a 4x4. Is that right?
Any idea how much does it cost per day to hire one?
And how much does a full tank of petrol cost? I have read that petrol is rather pricy in Tanzania?
Since I am travelling from the UK, I am thinking to carry most of my cash in British pounds but also some USD and once I am there to exchange my GBP for the local currency. Any thoughts on this?
Thank you all
