I am still in a dilemma on whether to split my stay between Stonetown and Nungwi/Kendwa, or should I just based myself in Stonetown throughout. Estimate will spend about 4-5 days in Zanzibar, but just wondering if it's worth the effort to 'relocate' myself from one hotel to another, or just stay put at one place on the island throughout and go-out-and-about on daytrips to different corner of the island
I understand the main corners/towns of the island is about 1 hr away from Stonetown in different direction eg north, northeast, south, southeast etc). However, is it easy for an independent traveller (not on group tour package) to get around by yourself in Zanzibar? By dalla-dalla? or hire taxi?
I am not a big beach person - will appreciate walking on the nice powdery beach all day for 1 or 2 days, but am not the kind of person who spend my entire vacation swimming or sunning on beach. However, I like adventure activities, cultural activities, animals/wildlife, nature, heritage/architecture, food, etc.
Any advice appreciated.
