Major distances between the towns and the airport

About 15 to 45 minutes from Zanzibar International Airport, there are a number of accommodation venues, in and out of Stone Town. Stone Town is the centre of Zanzibar and is filled with a variety of restaurants, markets and interesting sights to see.

Getting to Zanzibar

The best way to get to get to Zanzibar is to take a flight from Dar es Salaam. Flights land in Dar es Salaam from Europe and South Africa on a weekly basis. Once at Zanzibar International Airport your hotel will collect you and accommodate you in comfort.

Getting around in Zanzibar

There are transfer services to get you from one point to the next but Zanzibar is not a self-drive destination. If you would like to explore the island, you can get a scooter or a bicycle and tour around. Please note that car hire is limited.
