Visits on your own in zanzibar

I notices that there are a lot of organized tours in Zanzibar. the turists don't have also the possibility to visit the villages like Kizimkazi or other beaches on themselves etc? is there the possibility to rent a Scooter for example?

Sure, but how do you find your way round the villages? How do you communicate with the locals? Not impossible, but a whole lot easier if you have someone who knows the village.

I went on a tour of a village with a local, who showed us into a couple of houses, and some of the local activities, like rope-making. Also took us to the local school.

All very enlightening and he made a couple of bucks.

Most of the villagers are not used to tourist wandering around, and there is a lot of poverty.

Thare are tours that will make you reach the villages and enjoy your time with the locals like Cultural tour. This will take you to the local villages with a proffessional guide and you will have a look at how th locals live in the villages and experriance the village life and activities.

This i believe will be very convinient for you to enjoy the village tour without any hassle.
