Best Time to Visit Zanzibar

Zanzibar is a year round holiday destination, and you can plan your holiday based on the places you want to visit, your schedule, preferences and your budget.

1) Peak Season: The peak season for embarking on Zanzibar luxury packages is from June to October when the archipelago enjoys warm and sunny weather which is neither too hot nor humid. While travelling during these months, you will be able to enjoy scuba diving and turtle hatching. June to October is also the time when it is considered the best season for spotting animals in Tanzania. Hence many tourists go for safari in Tanzania during this period and then visit the Zanzibar Archipelago for a post-safari visit.

2) Shoulder Season:The month of November and early December is the shoulder season for Zanzibar. During these months, there is light rainfall in the middle of dry mid-year winter. The days are sometimes sunny but start with a cloudy morning. Afternoons have short-lived showers, so you will get time to lounge in the sun before retiring to a beach bar or to enjoy a yoga or message centre. Those travelling in December availing Zanzibar luxury packages can head towards the Mafia Archipelago to enjoy an opportunity to dive with whale sharks.

3) Waning Season: You can opt for a Zanzibar luxury trip between January to March if you want to enjoy spending time exploring the rich marine life of the Zanzibar sea. During this time, the days are hot but have the best diving conditions enabling you to enjoy time underwater at lagoons and coral reefs. During the waning season, you will get fabulous deals and discounts on accommodations and tour packages. You will also be able to indulge in indoor activities such as yoga and massage if you visit during this period.
