Travelling to Zanzibar, Tanzania
When to Visit Zanzibar
When you’re planning your journey to Zanzibar, the weather can play a big factor in when you visit. The best time to go, and the peak tourist season, is between June and October when the temperature is cool and the weather is dry. If you’re looking to score a deal on your Zanzibar vacation package, book your trip off-peak season between March and May. This is Zanzibar’s rainy season, but the storms usually clear out by mid-day so you can still go out and enjoy this wonderful city.
Things to do in Zanzibar
Zanzibar is an amazing vacation destination with beautiful beaches, exotic attractions and breathtaking landscapes. While most people travel to Zanzibar to enjoy surfing and lounging on the white sand beaches, there are a number of other sites to see in this chain of islands. Visit one of the first World Heritable Sites, Stone Town, in Zanzibar City’s old quarter, take in the sights and smells at the Central Market, see the monkeys at the Jozani Chwaka Bay Conservation Area, and get a deeper understanding of the royal life in the Palace Museum. There are also dining and shopping opportunities throughout the city, and close to your Zanzibar hotel room.
