If you are walking along the beach we are very easy to find. Just walk south and the last sign at the end of Paje is ours. Now just follow the path.

Which ways are there from Stone Town to Teddy´s Place?

The most comfortable way is to take a Taxi to Paje (about 40 US$). It takes you about 45 minutes. Once a day there are shared Taxis to the east coast (10 US$ per pax). Ask for the shared Taxis in your accommodation in Stone Town.
The cheapest way is to take the local dalla dalla from Darajani in Stone Town. If you tell them you want to go to Paje they will show you which one to take. There are 3 possibilities (Bwejuu, Michamwi or Jambiani). Normally they can let you out at the roundabout in Paje. If you take the dalla dalla to Jambiani you can ask them to drop you off at our sign on the road. Check the map here to see how you find us in Paje!
