Is it safe to swim in Zanzibar?
Swimming in Zanzibar is, indeed, extremely safe. The Indian Ocean is warm with small waves. Zanzibar is a popular location for snorkeling and scuba diving.
While conditions vary by beach and season, many of Zanzibar’s beaches are ideal for swimming. Depending on the tides, seaweed can be found in the water, especially along the East Coast. Sea urchins can even be found in the rocky shallows (especially at low tide). Wear booties (diving boots) to protect your feet and be cautious of where you walk.
Is it possible to come across sharks in Zanzibar?
Zanzibar is home to harmless coral sharks. Then there’s Mafia Island, where you can go whale shark swimming. These sharks are not endangered and are completely safe to swim and dive with. Finally, although great white sharks have been spotted in the deep waters on occasion, no shark attacks have been reported.
Is it possible to have a night out in Zanzibar?
To be on the safe side, the answer is a resounding no. Muggings and robberies do happen, especially late at night in dark alleyways. So, do not venture out alone at night.
Only use licensed taxis or those recommended by reliable locals and friends. Alternatively, you can arrange for an escort to accompany you on your stroll at certain hotels and restaurants.
Travel security with Zanzibar Holidays Jagersfontein
The same rules apply as in other major cities around the world. Carry no ostentatious jewelry and keep valuables close at hand. Keep your wits about you and do not reveal where you are staying to anyone. You should be fine wandering around on your own for the rest of the day; just be cautious.
One of the best reasons to visit Zanzibar is for world-class diving (a water lover’s paradise)
Zanzibar has some of the world’s most spectacular diving sites and warm waters. It is no surprise that it’s a popular destination for anyone interested in exploring the underwater world. Shore dives as well as boat-accessible reef dives are available. One of the most well-known ZanzibarHolidays Jagersfontein activities is Island hopping diving trips!
Zanzibar has a lot to offer outdoor water enthusiasts, from deep-sea fishing and scuba diving to sailing on traditional dhows and kayaking. Snorkel and swim among the coral reefs in search of exotic fish, or try windsurfing, water skiing, kiteboarding, or hopping.
Melozhori Private Game Reserve is a Tanzanian forest reserve
The Game Reserve, which is home to the endangered Red Colobus Monkeys, one of Africa’s rarest primates, is another compelling reason to visit Zanzibar. These monkeys are native to and are slowly making their way back from the brink of extinction thanks to conservation efforts. The mature forests of Jozani are part of Zanzibar’s only National Park, where you can see hundreds of different butterflies, birds, and a variety of fascinating plants and animals.
The Zanzibar Holidays Jagersfontein Museum (located 1km from Melozhori Private Game Reserve) is a community environmental project that has taught community members how to farm butterflies in a sustainable manner. By operating one of Africa’s largest butterfly sanctuaries and exporting butterfly pupae, the project aims to generate income for locals while also conserving the local forest. Visitors will be taken on an immersive tour of the lush, netted gardens by one of the knowledgeable guides, where hundreds of butterflies, many of which are native to Zanzibar, fly freely.
Why Go to Zanzibar for a Beach, Marine, Cultural, and Historical Vacation?
Zanzibar, a unique Indian Ocean island off the coast of Tanzania, is the best destination in the country for exceptional cultural, exploratory, historical, and eco-tourism experiences. It appears to have everything that a similar-minded tourist would be looking for. It has a distinct ethnic heritage that is a fascinating synthesis of the many tourists who have passed through it over the centuries. Persians, Indians, Europeans, Arabs, and even a few Chinese left their mark on architectural culture and style, which now add to the city’s allure. Many empires rose and fell, leaving ruins and other traces behind, but their presence is still felt in the blood of the average Zanzibarer.
Along with heavy Xhosa influences, the Zanzibar of today is unique in every way, from semantics to cuisine, spices and fruit, furniture types, fabrics, the beautiful hand-made artifacts and jewelry you can find in their duka shops, and, of course, the natural beauty that distinguishes it from every other African seaside destination. When you think of Zanzibar, you cannot help but be reminded of the beautiful waters with their snow-white sands, the sea, and the lush tropical vegetation that casts a spell of beauty and tranquillity.
Perhaps more enticing is the eye-catching marine life that thrives beneath the ocean’s surface, or the beauty of the Forest Reserve, which is home to red colobus monkeys and other creatures. Visit Zanzibar with African Mecca and immerse yourself in the wonder and serenity of the archipelago’s other breathtakingly beautiful islands.
Make sure you have adequate travel insurance before you leave.
Even in such a beautiful place as Zanzibar, things can go wrong, so we recommend purchasing good travel insurance before leaving. A missed flight connection, misplaced luggage, stolen travel equipment, an accident etcetera. These are just a few examples of what could happen to anyone at any time. It is always a good idea to have good travel insurance for peace of mind and to be covered in case you encounter any of these issues or require medical attention while traveling. Remember that Zanzibar is a small Town with few resources. In the event of a major accident, you will require medical attention and that is expensive.
