Uroa Advice

Good day. I’m going on my Honeymoon in the Uroa area next year. Are there any attractions and activities in the immediate area?

What is the cheapest and safest way to get around the Island?

Thanks

Hello,

The Uroa area is a fairly quiet section of the coast and there won't be much within walking distance. That said the whole island is reasonably accessible by car so you can do any of the trips you fancy as an organised tour. Your hotel should be able to help you book them. What sort of thing are you looking for? Popular trips are Dolphin Spotting, Safari Blue, Jozani Forest and Spice Tours.

I hope this helps an you enjoy your time in Zanzibar.

Thank you for the advise.

I will like to go to Jozani Forest, and explore the North. Is getting around expensive? And is transport reliable?

Hello,

Car hire is possible and getting around is reasonably easy. Price vary so check out a few options, some are more 'official' than others. Generally though we recommend people use local taxi / driver which will be arrangeable through your hotel. Cost wise this is comparable to hiring a fully covered vehicle and the driver will have local knowledge, to help you see more of what you want, and will handle the other bits such as refueling, police check points etc.

I hope this helps.
