English Summary: Recommendations for traveling in Zanzibar and Pemba
Zanzibar, Warere Town House Hotel. Possibly the best choice for your money in Stonetown. Hot shower, clean, big rooms, big king size beds, balcony (on which you can enjoy your take a way food from (Passing Show, see later), rooms are very nicely decorated with traditional art, breakfast is included and is being served on a beautifully rooftop with view. Rooms have also TV and (filled) refrigerator.
Zanzibar, Stonetown: Passing Show Hotel Restaurant. We did not see any rooms here but the food was of high quality, the price very very reasonable and the portions BIG! For 1700 TSh you get the best Biriany or Pilau you will get in East Africa. Come at lunchtime since at evening the choice is limited. Where: on Malawi street next to ZanAir & Zan Tours.
Zanzibar, Stonetown, There is an Barclays ATM now. Very convenient. Where: follow Malawi road in the direction of Nungwi. It is about 10 minutes from town.
Zanzibar, Stonetown, nameless cookie seller. Really very nice and extraordinary cookies. With all kind of spices: Gloves, ginger, cinnamon. Sweet but also salted cookies available. Where:" opposite International Hotel entree.
Zanzibar, Nungwi, What: East Africa Divers. Already listed but additional we like to tell that you can pay them in TSh without extra costs (which does not count for payments in euro, or traveler checks). Particular convenient and lucrative combined with the ATM in Stonetown.
Zanzibar Archipelago: Pemba, Mkoane. Jondeni Guest House is already listed but not very much visited. Perhaps because their one and only signboard is pointing to the wrong direction. But anyhow if we knew on beforehand that it was as nice as it is we would have planned to stay at least for 2 nights/days. What an lovely place, terras and what an awesome view over the ocean. A real good place to relax.
Tanzania, boat from Tanga to Pemba. It is possible but do not expect a bout like Pemba to ZNZ or ZNZ to Dar es Salaam. This one is as expensive as the other ones (we had to pay 25 dollar p/p) but there is no comfort what so ever. No chairs, no toilet, no food, only vomiting bags and people lying on the floor. We were a bit lucky to sit on the covered steamy hot motor next to the exhaust. But is paid of: we made it. this ride can be made 2 times a week. Tuesday and friday. going from Tanga harbor to Wete on Pemba and it takes about 6 hours. Good luck.
