Contacting Zanziland Holidays - are they still around?

Hi,

We had booked a trip back in the Fall with Zanziland Holidays (trip begins in Feb) and they had been very helpful and responsive. I also checked several references which were excellent as well.

http://www.zanzilandholidays.com/

However in the past few weeks I haven't heard back despite repeated emails and calls. Does anyone else here have good contact info for them? Any recent experiences to relate?

Thank you!

Thanks for the response. We did hear from them today. I guess they were at a vacation travel show. Looking forward to the trip!

Best,

Unfortunately, after brief email, I have not heard back from Zanziland and all of the bookings have not been paid for (Hotel, airflights on ZanAir.). I sent a deposit to the owner (Naseeb?) and am concerned we may not see that money again. I'd welcome any information from anyone reading this.

Thanks.

I am bumping up this post to see whatever happened to your trip Jeff. Did you ever manage to salvage it?

Zanziland used to offer good advice for Zanzibar but I haven't seen any posts from them for a month.

Update anyone?

Quiltingmama, thanks for bumping up this post!

Zanziland actually popped up a few weeks again with a random post on a thread related to Zanzibar, but he hasn't been returning his clients/agents/hotels calls or emails for a while, so I'm assuming he's not operating anymore... unless anyone has heard from him?

Hi all,

I had booked my transfer from the airport to Paje with Zanziland holidays and I would never do that again. When I arrived no driver was there, so I had to call the office. They didn´t call me back because an information so I had to call again. Then they told me the driver thought my flight was late??? (we were absolutely on time). Well then 40 minutes after my call finally a guy came. His english was hard to understand and I first thought he only speaks a very basic english. Luckily the driver was another guy because during our ride I recognized that the first guy was eather completely drunk or stoned or both of it. In the end I had to find the place where I wanted to go because they had no idea where it is, even if I told them via email before which place I wanted to go. Next time I will take a taxi from the airport. The guys there are very friendly and the guy from tourist information is very helpful.

I was in Zanzibar in June, leading a group. All our transfers were arranged through Zanziland, as were our spice tour and a city tour. All went perfectly, our guide was excellent and all emails sent to Naseeb have always been answered promptly.
