Getting Around Zanzibar

The most convenient mode of transportation for tourists in Zanzibar would be taxis. Most hotels will arrange for a taxi on your behalf. However, you should keep in mind that some of the hotels get a commission from the taxi services for providing business to them, so you may find that the prices vary from one hotel to another. Another mode of transportation is the "dalla-dalla". These are small mini-vans that act as public transport around the island as well as on the mainland. If comfort is what you are looking for, you could always hire a private car, but this tends to be more expensive than other modes of transportation.
