From the airport it takes approximately 30 minutes by car to get to our guest house (depending on traffic). We advise all guests to take a taxi, bajaj (low cost transportation) or arrange for pick-up with our management team.

Direction by car: Follow the Old Bagamoyo Road towards White Sands. At the first round-about at the "White Sands" sign turn left. Then turn right the second rough road (there is a sign with "Viva Villa" on it).
