Your travel experience

Do you customize tours?

Yes, just let us know what’s in your mind and we will put all together for you!

I am a solo (single) traveler, how can I join your tour?

We can add solo travelers to a group if possible, or we can arrange a private trip for you.

Can you book airfares?

International flights no. We chose to not offer these within our package mostly because we would like to give you the possibility of choosing your own airline due to budget and travel duration preferences. We can imagine some would like to fly directly while others don’t mind to pay less but travel longer.
Domestic flights, yes these are included in the price.

What is the water temperature in Zanzibar?

The Indian Ocean which surrounds Zanzibar is wonderfully warm all year around, averaging about 27° C/ 80° F.

Is Zanzibar safe?

Zanzibar is predominantly very safe, however exercise caution just like anywhere and book your tours with us or through other registered tour operators only.

What is the local currency and how should we manage carrying our money?

The local currency is the Tanzanian Shilling but US Dollars are widely accepted. Credit cards are accepted at most hotels, but not at many shops and certainly not at the local markets. Be prepared to pay a surcharge between 5% - 10% if paying by credit card.

Is malaria a risk in Tanzania? Do I need any special health certificates?

Yes. You will need to consult your doctor about anti-malaria medication. Check with your local health authority for any vaccination requirements. E.g. Yellow fever.
