Best time to visit Zanzibar

Premium WordPress Themes

Temperatures are quite consistent across all seasons ranging from the high 20‘s to the mid 30‘s throughout the year. Zanzibar’s weather pattern follows that of Tanzania very closely – though you’ll note that it is a little more humid. Generally the main rainy season is between March and May. The humidity at this time is high and daily temperatures reach the low 30°s but no higher.

The dry season is Zanzibar is long and rainfall is unusual – it is between June and October. Temperatures vary hugely with altitude and location, but you’ll mostly always be under clear skies and sunny weather. During November and December there’s another rainy season: referred to as the ‘short rains’. These are much lighter than the main rains and less reliable – so travel is still possible at this time but you may bare witness to the odd rainstorm.
