Response from Sara F | Reviewed this property |
Hello Philip, we were in Homeland Swahili Lodge last June and we paid 17,90 USD for the taxi from Stone Town airport to the hotel in Nungwi. I think the amount in TZS is 40.000. Don't pay more than that!

You need to pay by cash. There is no ATM at Nungwi, only one exchange shop which takes big commision. Så it is good to have cash with you.
