When to travel

    Of course, the beautiful climate of Zanzibar is a significant part of the destination's appeal. Sitting just south of the equator, Zanzibar has very similar weather to the rest of Tanzania, though you can expect slightly higher humidity.

    June to October is the long dry season, when rainfall is rare - and for that reason, this can be a fantastic time to visit Zanzibar. During November and December are the 'short rains', meaning that these months are punctuated with short, light bursts of rain ahead of the short dry season in January and February. The rainfall recommences in March and, until May, this represents the rainiest season - heavy tropical downpours are common during this time, while humidity can be quite high.
