Accessibility and Best time to Visit Zanzibar.

For those outside Tanzania or Zanzibar; you can easily and comfortably reach Zanzibar through water; on a ferry, or through the air; on a chattered flight. Zanzibar receives visitors all year round. But we would recommend a safari in June to September and December to March.

If possible, avoid visiting on Public Holidays, because that is when most places are closed. Zanzibar film festival for Dhow countries attracts thousands of people thus ideal for your visit.

Safaris to Zanzibar are remarkably unforgettable, with great accommodation facilities, welcoming natives, and many more. Contact us for your adventure.
