New Year’s Eve in Zanzibar means parties, musical performances, fireworks and night-long revelry.
Okay, “like everywhere else in the world” you’d say. Now add some acrobatic shows, fire eaters, the beach, hundreds of backpackers from all over the world, a crowded beach bar and 31 degrees… and suddenly your scenario changes, isn’t it?
The main party scene of Zanzibar is the Kendwa Rocks, a resort particularly popular among younger backpackers who enjoy the party vibe.
How to get to Kendwa
Kendwa is located 1 hour drive north of Stone Town and Zanzibar Airport. You can either:
- take a taxi (around $50-65 one way)
- take number 116 daladala (local smal buses)
