Zanzibar (Tanzania) is an island located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of mainland Tanzania, from which it’s parted by Zanzibar Channel.
The eastern coast of the Island is surrounded by a beautiful coral reef, rich of underwater flora and fauna, which beaches are bounded by a lush and flourishing tropical vegetation.
Zanzibar is an enchanted place, rooted in Black Africa thousand-year history, but also a cosmopolitan country thanks to the blending of many ethnicities which, in the course of the centuries, have been brought here by navigators coming from all over the Indian Ocean.
In Zanzibar everything’s unique: a magical combination between Arabic- and African culture, the huge baobabs, the mesmerizing scents of the spices, the incredible variety (and the taste!) of the fruit and the fishes, the seducing African atmosphere, the dhows (typical local boats) sailing in the sunset, the joyful and friendly people.
Wandering through the alleys of Stone Town, the ancient capital of Zanzibar and UNESCO World Heritage, one can admire the famous “Zanzibarian portals”, which date back to the period of the Arabic traders, who were one of the first people who landed on the Island.
Zanzibar is located in the Equatorial zone, thus its climate is substantially tropical. The Sun shines almost all year round with a constant and pleasant temperature, also thanks to the Monsoons, warm winds typical of the Indian Ocean, blowing from the South-East from April to November and from the North from December to March. There’s a rain season, called “Long rains season” from April to June.
The hottest season goes from October to March; during this period temperatures range around 30-33°C, but cool breezes help mitigate the hot sensation. In the hottest days of February temperature can rise up to 36-38°C. From July to September, on the contrary, thanks to the Trade Winds blowing from the South-East, weather is cooler with the hottest temperatures around 29°C. Moreover, due to the influence of the Indian Ocean, the temperature ranges are quite reduced.
The best moment to visit Zanzibar largely depends on both your personal taste and the purpose of the travel; if you prefer enjoying the beautiful Ocean you will choose the hot and dry season, i.e. from December to March; if you’d rather discover the breathtaking nature trails, probably the months from July to November will suit you better.
If the exotic beach of your dreams is a long stretch of soft white sand, surrounded by towering palm trees and washed by the warm blue waters of the Indian Ocean, well, Zanzibar realises all these wishes.
The tides, which make Zanzibar famous, continuously change the shape of the beaches and the color of the sea, cobalt blue and purple nuances magically changing during the day. The low tide discloses beautiful sand stretches leading to the coral reef, the best place for snorkeling and enjoying water sports. Walking after the tide, natural treasures can be found, such as shells and colorful starfishes.
The official motto of Zanzibar is “relax”. The Island is a true Eden for the sea- and nature lovers who can enjoy the continuously changing hues of the landscape from dawn to dusk, watching the amazing tides and remain immersed for hours in this magical atmosphere, staring at the unbelievable beauty of the coast of the Indian Ocean.
Lying under the warm sun or looking for a cooler place under the palm trees is a must, as well as visiting the rich and lush inland of the Island, a quiet environment where everything is performed “pole pole”, i.e. “slowly slowly”.
