how to get to Kendwa rocks from stone-town airport by local transportGood morning all!
We would like to experience local transport and would try to get from Stone Town airport (internal flight) to Kendwa Rocks hotel.
Could you please advice us any matatu numbers/places or any info that will help us to find an appropriate matatu.

If you want to get to Kendwa Rocks from the Airport you will need to take two dalla dallas.
You first take one to darajani (main dalla stand in stonetown) and then take another one to Nungwi. Then you need to ask the conductor to stop at the junction to Kendwa Rocks and then you will have to walk about 15 minutes.

2Whilst less expensive the dala dalas will take a lot longer - in total from airport to Stone Town (1500-2000 TSh) and around 30 minutes; Stone Town to Kendwa (3000-4000 TSh) but will take around 2-3 hours plus waiting time at Darajani. The dala dala (which is basically a covered lorry - great airconditoning - but you get wet if it rains - will not depart until its at least 75-80% full. If there are 2 or more of you a shared taxi will be a lot quicker and more comfortable (should be around 15000 TSh each) or if there are 3 of you, you could consider a private taxi - costs around $50 US but will get you there in around 65-75 minutes.
