A tropical paradise, steeped in culture

Zanzibar, also known as the Spice Islands, is an archipelago of over 50 paradise islands and islets, steeped in culture and charm. Anchored off Tanzania’s coast, Zanzibar offers the perfect tropical getaway, whether relaxing on pristine white beaches, sailing across the azure sea, visiting intoxicating spice plantations or getting lost in its ancient, photogenic capital, Stone Town. It really is a destination that offers something for everyone.

When to go?

The best time to visit Zanzibar is during the dry season from June to October. This period has ideal weather conditions, with sunshine, minimal rainfall, and moderate temperatures. However, the shoulder seasons of late December to early February or mid-September to October are also good for a slightly quieter experience.
