Getting around Zanzibar

Getting around the Stone Town, Zanzibar’s historic centre, is easiest on foot. Outside of the centre, taxis or private cars are the best bet. Hotels can arrange taxis but will add commission. Dalla-dallas are small minivans and cheaper than taxis or private cars.

Zanzibar is mostly safe, but it is a Muslim community and travellers should dress appropriately, covering legs and arms and drinking alcohol discreetly. During Ramadan it is best to avoid eating, drinking and smoking in public during the daytime. Street hawkers will try to sell tours but it is best to book these through hotels or tourist offices.
