Taxi Needed

I am visiting Nungwi Zanzibar Next month and looking to get a taxi from the airport. Can anyone link me up with a taxi driver from the airport to Nungwi? I need to be able to arrange with him before I leave Lagos.

Hi Sa Q

I'll like to ensure I use an official taxi too, and I've searched online, but can't find a list I can refer to.

Can you point me in the right direction, tell me what I should look for, or post a link please?

Much appreciated!

Cheers ♥️

Try Abuu Kombo, +255 777 491 785 (you can use WhatsApp). He's a terrific guy, friendly, honest, and a good companion.

Abuu maybe unofficial better double check.

Official taxis think will have red plate numbers and taxi ribbon like line drawn around with a taxi side number. Easily to spot and identify

Forgot also a "Taxi" label ontop is must on all official taxis.

They are numbered on the side for easy identification good to memorise the side number if not best its plate number.

Okay, so not able to book online in advance? Can only identify by vehicle markings on arrival at the airport, but should be lots of official taxis to choose from?
