Questions about Tours in Zanzibar

We are visiting Zanzibar for the first time in October, staying at the Ocean Paradise Hotel for 6 nights. We are interested in doing the following:

• Princess Salme Spice Tour

• Jozani Forest Tour

• Nungwi Cultural Tour

• Stone Town

Could you let me know:

1. Is it best to go with a tour company to do the Jozani Forest Tour and Nungwi Cultural Tour, or better to hire a taxi to take us to each location and pick up a guide one we are there? If by taxi do you know what the approx fares would be?

2. Is it best to do a guided tour of Stone Town or to explore on our own? How much would a taxi be from Ocean Paradise to Stone Town?

Many thanks

1. Re: Questions about Tours in Zanzibar

You can do the Jozani Forest with Stone Town and the Nungwi cultural tour be on its own for full day.

I would advise you book everything with your tour operator for a better deal and safe comfortable trips arround Zanzibar.
