Top Local Tips for Zanzibar

Good News - An ATM (Cashpoint) in Zanzibar that accepts all cards! Travelling in Tanzania - you will quickly find out that the ATMs are not connected to the outside world and even getting money on Visa can be impossible. After struggling through the whole of Tanzania, we were delighted to find the "Financial Bank of the Middle East" (FBME) has a flexi teller in the main street of Stone Town (Kenyatta Ave) just up from the boutiques and shops, that accepts most major cards and is attached the outside networks including Maestro,Cirrus & Visa. Suddenly, we had money any time we wanted it! This flexiteller is part of a big bank but for some reason, is not in the guide books or well publicised. Our hotel owner (Lissette from the Clove) put us on to it. Have returned home and have had no problems with the transactions on our bank statement - exchanged at a fair rate too!

Spice Tour Ask in Clove Hotel to book a spice tour. Very good guide and an enjoyable day.

Have a paper ticket! We ran into issues at the airport when leaving because of the lack of communication between Kenyan airways and Precision airways that were code share on our flight to Nairobi. Our e-ticket numbers weren't transfered into the precision system from kenyan and despite having a 6am flight, the emergency number at kenyan went unanswered until 9am at which point we had already missed our flight. So, we had to sit in the airport for 10 hours utill the next flight. My advise, even in Kenya tells you that you have an e-ticket, demand a paper ticket!
