    General Information

    Climate

    • The islands of Zanzibar are warm year-round. The rainy seasons are typically from March to May and late September to November. The best months to visit Unguja and Pemba are during the dry seasons between July and September and mid-December to February. 
    • Like most tropical destinations, rain can occur at any time - showers are generally short, followed by blue skies and glorious sunshine outside of the rainy seasons.

    Language & Currency

    • Kiswahili and English are the official languages of Zanzibar. Kiswahili is the most widely spoken language and the mother tongue of virtually all Zanzibaris. Many locals can speak English and Arabic as well as some Italian and French in the main tourist areas.
    • The local currency of Zanzibar is the Tanzanian shilling, which divides into 100 senti. US dollars are widely accepted; local currency is best for dining in local restaurants, shopping and tipping. Larger hotels may accept credit cards; however, surcharges are commonplace. Do not rely on using credit cards other than as a backup. Small beach hotels often accept cash only. Access to cash machines is very limited outside of Stone Town. Exchanging currency can be done in the banks located in Stone Town and foreign exchange bureaus.

    Visa & Access

    • Many foreign nationals will require a visa for entry to Tanzania. Please check with your local Tanzanian Embassy or our travel team for further information. Tourist visit visas can often be obtained, on arrival, at most ports of entry. The Tanzanian government has introduced an online ‘e-visa’ application system for obtaining visas in advance of travel. Travellers who require a visa prior to arrival should carry a printed copy of their visa to present to immigration officials.
    • The main international airport of the Zanzibar Archipelago is Abeid Amani Karume International Airport in Zanzibar City (ZNZ), and the regional airport of Pemba is Karume Airport in Chake-Chake (PMA). High-speed ferries operate from the port in Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar.

    Health

    • At least 6-8 weeks before departure, please visit your local health care provider or travel clinic for any vaccination requirements and to discuss any other potential health risks, such as malaria (where applicable). All travellers should ensure they have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place.

    For any questions on Zanzibar or your holiday, contact our travel team, who will happily assist you with any information you may require.
