"Road conditions on main roads" Zanzibar Island Transportation Tip by tliuska

Zanzibar Island Transportation: 26 reviews and 38 photos

Visited Zanzibar last week and was quite surprised that the main roads are in quite good shape. Roads leading to Nungwi and to the east coast used to be in terrible condition some time ago. Nowadays they are just finishing up new tarmac to Nungwi and the taxi driver told that the situation in east coast is currently similar, the government has been doing their best to get those roads fixed.

Taxi from airport to Kendwa beach took us around 40 minutes and costs 60 000 Tsh (around 50 USD). Shuttle buses are much cheaper option, from Kendwa to Stone Town it was 8000 Tsh (7 USD).
