Not just an idyllic island getaway, Zanzibar also has a rich historical and cultural legacy. The centre of Zanzibar City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Interesting attractions where visitors can learn more about the island’s fascinating history include the National Museum, Palace Museum, Old Dispensary and Old Fort. Zanzibar’s beaches are justifiably world famous, while the Jozani Chwaka Bay Conservation Area is a beautiful natural escape. Other attractions include the Anglican Cathedral and Slave Market, bustling Central Market, the House of Wonders and the tranquil Maruhubi and Mtoni Palace ruins.
There is generally no bad time to visit Zanzibar as the weather here is generally warm. Dry season lasts from June to October but it is also the coldest time. March till May see the most humid season when temperatures are high but so are the downpours.
Getting around the Stone Town, Zanzibar’s historic centre, is easiest on foot. Outside of the centre, taxis or private cars are the best bet. Hotels can arrange taxis but will add commission. Dalla-dallas are small minivans and cheaper than taxis or private cars.
Zanzibar is mostly safe, but it is a Muslim community and travellers should dress appropriately, covering legs and arms and drinking alcohol discreetly. During Ramadan it is best to avoid eating, drinking and smoking in public during the daytime. Street hawkers will try to sell tours but it is best to book these through hotels or tourist offices.
