Except for the major raining season during April and May, Zanzibar is a year-
Most of the year it is quite windy on the island but from mid October to mid December and again from mid February to end of March the wind is fading down and you will usually find calm sea and best diving conditions
The sea is probably why you come to Zanzibar in the first place but there are many things to do and discover around the island. There is the ancient capital of Zanzibar -
Zanzibar is also known as the Island of the Spices and you cannot miss this trip to the Spice Plantation where you will observe and even pick fruits and spices from the trees and the plants.
Jozani Forest is the remains of the last tropical forest on the island with cheerful red monkeys living there.
We can help you arranging your private sightseeing-
Only few airlines offer direct flights from Europe to Zanzibar (e.g. CONDOR) but several airlines serve Zanzibar with an intermediate stop (Ethiopian Airlines, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Oman Air, Emirates/Fly Dubai) and some more Airlines fly to Dar Es Salam (e.g. SWISS, KLM, British Airways, etc.). From there it is just a 20 min. flight by one of the many local airlines (Precision Air, Zanair, etc). You may also take the ferry (Kilimanjaro express) from Dar Es Salaam to Stone Town.
Travel time by taxi from Airport or Ferry port up to Nungwi takes a bit over one hour.
The best diving center
The local currency is the Tanzania Shilling and this is also the best choice to pay for your local restaurant and shopping expenses. Most tourist locations also accept US.$ (Only a few Euro). Credit Card payment has become more common but therer is often a surcharge for CC payments.
You can exchange € and $ at many exchange offices around the island (though exchange rates are slightly more favourable in Stone Town!).
