Zanzibar

The Zanzibar archipelago with its main island Unguja lies in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa and belongs to Tanzania. Zanzibar is especially known for its beautiful beaches and as an inexpensive alternative to the Maldives. The Unesco World Heritage Site Stone Town with its buildings made of light coral limestone and mangrove wood in the 19th century is also worth a visit.

Best Time to Visit

Zanzibar is relatively close to the equator and therefore the climate is tropical. Due to the southwest and northeast monsoon there are two rainy seasons per year between the end of March and the end of May and in November and December. Temperatures average 27°C with maximums just above 30°C and nightly temperatures not below 20°C. During the two rainy seasons the humidity can be very unpleasant. Therefore the ideal travel time is between the beginning of June and the end of September as well as in January and February. In general, however, you can visit Zanzibar all year round.

Immigration & Visa Requirements

With most EU passports (must be valid for at least 6 months on departure) a visa is required for Tanzania. You can apply for the visa either in advance at an embassy or as a Visa on Arrival for a fee of $50 when entering the country at the Zanzibar International Airport. The fee can only be paid by credit card.

Departure Charge

In addition, depending on the airline, an exit fee or tax may be payable on departure from Zanzibar International Airport. For some airlines the departure tax is already included in the airfare.
