How to organize my trip to Zanzibar?


best hotels in zanzibar


The paradisiacal archipelago of Zanzibar is a preferred destination as much as part of safari trips through Kenya or Tanzania as well as individually. The islands of Pemba and Zanzibar have enough charms to get all the attention! We speak of over 2600 km2 of exuberant nature, spice fragrances, fine white sandy beaches for relax, warm waters for snorkelling and kite-surfing, and historical centres such as the Stone City, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

The welcoming character of the Zanzibari, the security of the streets, and an ideal climate have just made this visit thoroughly recommended. But did you know that you do not even need to stop by a travel agency to come to Zanzibar? Organizing a trip is much simpler than you think.


How to get to Zanzibar

Getting to Zanzibar by plane is no problem as it has its international Airport, known as the Kisauni. Except for some charter flights from Italy or Germany, most trips require one or two stops in cities like Dubai or Dar-es-Salam on the same coast of Tanzania.

Fortunately, any flight-searcher on the internet will make available all the possibilities of flight so that you pick the most convenient in the chosen dates. And we will be happy to welcome you!

Vaccines and preparations

As protection measures, it is imperative to get vaccinated against yellow fever, something required to enter Tanzania. In addition, it is also recommended to be vaccinated against hepatitis A and B and malaria. Just go to your doctor, explain where you are going, and he/she will give you everything you need on health issues.

May nothing spoil the wonderful days that you will spend on our islands!

At the administrative level, to enter Tanzania on a self-arranged trip to Zanzibar, a passport is required, the validity of which must be for at least six months from the date of entry into the country. The visa is obtained upon arrival and has a cost of $ 50.
