Travel documents
To enter Tanzania, you will need a passport valid for at least 3 months after the date of departure from Zanzibar and a tourist visa. You can get a visa at the consulate in your country or, more conveniently, directly at the airport. It is granted for the period of stay in Tanzania – not longer than 3 months.
When to go?
In Zanzibar you can enjoy a warm tropical weather all year round. The best months to visit the island are those in the dry season, that is December-March and the end of June-October. In the remaining months precipitation can be expected.
Zanzibar is perceived as a safe tourist destination. Still, when traveling around the island it is worth to be cautious – especially when using public transport, and to be aware of the typical “dangers” awaiting tourists, such as swindlers, pick-pocketing, etc.
