Our experience with Shabari was unexpected terrible. At the beginningm we thought that he was a serious guy and he was caring for his business, but we realized that he just wanted to take profits from the tourist by scamming them. In our case we experienced two different scams when we rented the car:
1- When you rent a car in Zanzibar you need to get a permit issued by the local authorities, first of all he said that was 15000 shillings and then he said that was 15 dollars, we just paid bc we wanted the car, but when the police stopped us and we asked how much was the permit they said 15000 shillings.
2- When we did the "contract" of the conditions of the car, he said that he would give us the car with a 1/4 of fuel, he gave the car to us completely empty of this way he also gets some money from the fuel remaining.
Saying that, we were not angry but disappointed since he was not honest and he was just looking how to take some advantage from us.
