Best Time to Visit Zanzibar

The best time to visit Zanzibar is from June to October during the cool, dry months of spring. Another popular time to visit this tropical island is from December to February when it’s hot and dry.

An African beach holiday means sundrenched shores, palm fringed beaches and glorious sunsets - expect all this and more on a Zanzibar beach escape.

There are two best times to scuba dive off the coast of Zanzibar, in July and August and in February and March. Diving off the north coast is particularly good from June to October and off the south coast between November and March.

We don’t recommend visiting Zanzibar during the two rainy seasons,  from mid-March to late May and again in November.
