Zanzibar Island Transportation

  • Flight from Zanzibar to Tanga

    I took a plane ride from Zanzibar to Tanga which is highly recommended if you like aerial views and beautiful scenery. The plane is operated by Coast Aviation, which has an office near the Serena Inn in Stone Town.

  • THE DALLA DALLA'S

    Converted pick-ups or Dalla-Dallas (minibuses) link all major towns on Zanzibar Island. The main 'Bus Station' is on Creek Road just beside the Darajani Market on the edge of Stone Town. They tend to leave once an impossible number of people have been squeezed into, and often onto, these overworked vehicles. Each one has a number and many are...
