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 at a local shop where you can buy some food to offer as a present to the village (flour, rice, and 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, 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 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, relax, and swim 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.

Superb quad biking through villages and local people. The guide was very nice and we had taken cakes and pasta upstream to distribute to the locals who were delighted with our donations. Little advice, print your payment receipt because the boss of the quad wanted us to pay again in dollars for the service!

Definitely a different experience from those offered by the resorts. To the adventurous part with the quad, we must add the "real" part that shows a real cross-section of Zanzibar ... a dip in the poverty of the people of the island, in their disarming smiles. Must do when you come here!

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.
