True Africa Presents

Zanzibar

Hand-crafted Travel to Zanzibar

Often referred to as a single island, Zanzibar is in fact a semi-autonomous archipelago of islands located off the Tanzanian coast, where visitors can explore small and almost deserted islands as well as fishing villages dotted along the coast. The tropical tableau and Swahili culture of the Zanzibar Archipelago offers a diverse, fascinating and highly enjoyable East African Indian Ocean experience. As a luxury getaway, it promises world-class diving, idyllic beaches sprinkled with luxury hotels and an ocean acting as a playground for diving, snorkelling and kite-surfing.

Local Time: GMT+3

Local Currency: Tanzanian Shilling

The best time to visit Zanzibar is during the dry season from June to October, with clear skies and comfortable temperatures ideal for beach activities, diving, and snorkeling. The short rains from November to December offer lush landscapes, while the long rains from March to May are less recommended for travel.
