Map & Directions

From Stone Town Zanzibar you can catch the local Daladala bus no.116. Take the daladala from the Stone town Market place to the end of the line Nungwi. The trip takes approx 1:30hrs and costs approx $2 or 2000tzs.

Once at Nungwi you will see signs all around the village which will direct you to James's Guest House. The phone number is on all the signs so if you have any concerns call us and we will send someone to meet you.

We advise if taking the Dala dala that the latest you leave Stone Town is 16:30 to ensure you are in Nungwi and installed in your rooms before dark. The sun goes down at 18:30 and not only is this one of the most spectacular sites, not to be missed, but it is also quite difficult to find your way after dark until you are used to it. 

We also for this reason advise you bring a torch/flash light with you just incase.
