When Is the Best Time to Travel to Zanzibar?
The best time to visit Zanzibar’s best beaches is from June to October, when the weather is cool and dry. Zanzibar is also popular between December and February, when the weather is hot and dry. The benefit of visiting Zanzibar beaches during the off-season is that they are almost always open. With our affordable Zanzibar holiday packages Ashton, you too can relax on the most beautiful beach in Africa.
Is Swimming Dangerous in Zanzibar?
Swimming in Zanzibar is extremely safe. The Indian Ocean is a calm and warm body of water with no waves. Scuba diving and snorkeling are popular activities in Zanzibar.
In Zanzibar, snorkeling is an option
Despite the fact that the weather varies according to season, you can swim at many Zanzibar beaches. Seaweed can be found in the water depending on the tides, especially along the East Coast. Even in shallow water, sea urchins can be found (at low tide). Wear diving boots and walk with caution to protect your feet.
Is it possible to see sharks in Zanzibar?
There are some harmless coral sharks in Zanzibar. Then there’s Mafia Island, which offers shark diving. Sharks are not dangerous, and swimming or diving with them is completely risk-free. Finally, despite reports of great white shark sightings in deep waters, there have been no shark attacks reported.
Is it safe to walk around Zanzibar at night?
To be on the safe side, the answer is a resounding no. Robberies and muggings are common, particularly late at night in dark alleyways. Avoid going out late at night by yourself.
Use only licensed taxis or taxis recommended by friends and neighbors. You can also hire an escort to accompany you on your hotel and restaurant tour.
Zanzibar Is A Safe Area
The rules are the same as they are in any other major city on the planet. Keep your valuables close at hand and avoid wearing jewelry tha is too flashy. Keep your wits about you and never give out your address to anyone. During the day, you should feel safe wandering around on your own, but keep an eye on your belongings.
World-class diving (a water lover’s paradise) is one of the main reasons to visit Zanzibar
Zanzibar Holidays Ashton has some of the most beautiful diving sites and warmest waters in the world. It’s no surprise that scuba divers and snorkelers come here in droves. Reef diving can be done from either a boat or the beach. Island hopping diving trips are one of the most popular Zanzibar vacation activities!
From deep-sea fishing and scuba diving to traditional dhow sailing and kayaking, Zanzibar Holidays Ashton has a lot to offer outdoor water enthusiasts. While snorkeling and swimming among the coral, try windsurfing, water skiing, kiteboarding, or dive hopping.
The Jozani Private Game Reserve is a forest reserve in Tanzania
Another compelling reason to visit Zanzibar is the Game Reserve, which is home to the endangered Red Colobus Monkeys, one of Africa’s rarest primates. These monkeys are native to the area and, thanks to conservation efforts, are slowly regaining their extinct status. Jozani is the Island’s only National Park, and it is home to hundreds of butterflies, birds, and other fascinating plants and animals.
The Zanzibar Museum (one kilometer from the Jozani Private Game Reserve) is a community environmental project that teaches residents how to farm butterflies in an environmentally friendly manner. The project aims to generate income for locals while also conserving the local forest by operating one of Africa’s largest butterfly sanctuaries and exporting butterfly pupae. One of the knowledgeable guides will lead visitors through the lush, netted gardens, which are home to hundreds of butterflies, many of which are native to Zanzibar.
Why should you go to Zanzibar? For A Beach, Sea, Cultural, Or Historical Vacation.
Zanzibar is Tanzania’s best destination for cultural, exploratory, historical, and eco-tourism activities. It is located in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Tanzania. It appears to have everything that a tourist with similar interests would desire. As a result of the numerous tourists who have passed through over the years, it has an interesting ethnic background. Persians, Indians, Europeans, Arabs, and even a few Chinese have all left their imprints on the city’s architecture, adding to its allure. Many empires rose and fell, leaving behind ruins and other relics, but the blood of the average Zanzibar resident bears the imprint of their existence.
Zanzibar is unlike any other African seaside destination, from semantics to cuisine, spices and fruit, furniture types, fabrics, the beautiful hand-crafted artifacts and jewelry available in their duka shops, and, of course, the natural beauty that sets it apart from every other African seaside destination. Zanzibar evokes images of stunning water, pristine sands, the sea, and lush tropical vegetation, all of which cast a spell of beauty and tranquillity.
The vibrant marine life that thrives beneath the sea’s surface, as well as the natural beauty of the Forest Reserve, which is home to red colobus monkeys and other animals, are perhaps more enticing. You can immerse yourself in the wonder and serenity of Zanzibar and the rest of the breathtakingly beautiful archipelago with African Mecca.
Before you leave, make sure you have adequate travel insurance
Even in a beautiful place like Zanzibar, things can go wrong, so Zanzibar Holidays Ashton recommends that you get good travel insurance before you leave. Missed flights, misplaced luggage, stolen travel equipment, arrival accidents, and so on are all possibilities. These are only a few examples of what can happen to anyone at any time. For peace of mind and to be covered in the event of any of these mishaps or if you require medical attention while traveling, it is always a good idea to have adequate travel insurance. It is critical to remember that Zanzibar is a small, resource-constrained island. If you require medical attention as a result of a major accident, it will be costly.
