open top jeep in zanzibar

Does anyone know if there are any open top jeeps for rent in zanzibar? Or what are conditions like on the roads to rent a motor scooter? We are staying at Pongwe in September.

Thanks Jane

Zanzibar Government have been doing well for these two Years in road Construction.

Road to Pongwe is Tamarc Road,All beach Hotels now are reachable smoothly,Except a small sector of Kendwa Beach road.

To get an Open Jeep is not possible,some local people have them but they do not have a registration to be hired to Tourists.

There are so many Scooter for hire,ranges US 20-30 a day,exclude Fuel.

Even where roads are now in better repair, there are always people walking along the wides, animals roaming about and running across, crazy dolla-dolla drivers, lots of stuff kicks up (gravel) and diesel fuel permeates the air.

I'd rethink mopeds, this ain't SA with a good road system. Or take out lots of insurance!

Many of the hotels have small 4x4 Jeeps to rent, roughly $60 per day, but I expect that varies slightly from hotel to hotel.

Kind regards
