Full description

Meet your guide at the office of the activity provider then drive along the main road going to Pwani Majangani, for about 4 km. The tour usually stops for a few minutes at a local shop where you can buy some food to offer as a present to the village.

After this small pit stop, you leave the tarmac road to ride the quad off-road through the rice fields, where your guide stops for about 15 minutes to explain the economy, culture, and habits of the villages in the middle part of the island.

After this explanation, the excursion goes ahead through the environment of the island to arrive at the local village, where you'll stop for about 1 hour.

Travelers will have the opportunity to stay with the children, play with them, and be in contact with the community of the village. After this first contact, your guide will offer guests local fresh fruits (Madafu, seasonal fresh fruit).

Next, head to the House of Mad, a typical home in the rural village, as your guide discusses the life and culture of the Zanzibarian people. Before getting back on the quad, visit plantations of cinnamon, cloves, lemon grass, and other varieties, which are cultivated by the people of the village.

You finally leave the village riding to Pwani Majangani to reach the fishermen's village. At the village, you will stop for a few minutes to explain the difference between the rural village and the community based on the coast of the Island.

Following the sand road, passing through the fishermen's houses, you arrive at the beach where you will stop for a few minutes before heading back to the starting point.

Die Tour war ein ganz klein wenig anders als Beschrieben. Wir waren in keinem Dorf 1 Stunde. Hatten auch keine Zeit um mit Kindern zu spielen oder mit den Dorfbewohnern zu sprechen. Der Guide hat einen tollen Job gemacht und all unsere Fragen kurz und mit den nötigen Informationen beantwortet. Lieber vorher was für die Dorfbewohner bzw. die Kinder besorgen. Unterwegs war 1 Stopp wo wir was kaufen konnten. Aber insgesamt war es eine tolle Tour. Wir sind froh, das wir auch das ganz normale Leben in Sansibar/Tansania kennenlernen durften.

L’expérience a été agréable. Positif : confronté à la réalité des locaux, quad en très bonne état. Visite des épices très intéressante, on apprend beaucoup. Négatif : malgré l’achat de 50kg de riz, le guide nous fait quelque peu culpabiliser de ne pas donner plus, meme si ça part d’une très bonne intention. On recommande l’activité tout de même.

Superbe sortie en quad à travers des villages et la population locale. Le guide était très sympa et nous avions pris en amont des gâteaux et des pâtes pour distribuer aux habitants qui étaient ravis de nos dons. Petit conseil, imprimez votre reçu de paiement car le patron du quad voulait nous refaire payer en dollar la prestation !
