Full description

Meet your guide at the meeting point, then you drive along the main road going to Pwani Majangani, for about 4 km. The tour usually stops for a few minutes in a local shop where you can buy some food to offer as a present to the village (flour, rise, biscuits for the kids). Clients are encouraged to support the local community. 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. At the village, you stop for about 1 hour. Travellers 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). The excursion will then proceed 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, guests will 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 in Waikiki Resort, where you will stop for about 15 minutes. At Waikiki, you can enjoy Focaccia (typical Italian white pizza). You will be able to rest at the beach, relaxing, and taking a bath in the ocean, before hopping back on the quad and ending the excursion by coming back to the main quarter. You will be dropped off back at your hotel.

Fantastic experience, I would do it another 1000 times. Excursion that immerses you in the true culture and real life of the local people. The spice tour and the visit to the village where there are children is something exciting. I highly recommend, if you come here to Zanzibar you cannot miss this experience.

The activity is great, discovering part of the island by Quad is great! Discovering spices, but also villages. The only problem is that at the base the transfer is included from the hotel if it is less than 30 minutes. We took exactly 19 minutes. But we still had to pay out of pocket for the return trip.

Very varied

A great tour and absolutely authentic. First it goes to a real village (no tourist village, this is always changed every few months) where you learn something about the life, the plants and spices of the village and then drive to the coast to a fantastic beach. The time on the beach was a bit short but you also drove a lot with the quad. The communication in advance via whats app regarding the pick-up time etc. worked perfectly. A really great day
