Here is a list of the 10 best all-inclusive resorts and packages for Zanzibar.
Zanzibar & Kenya Holiday / Honeymoon Safari
One of the best ways to make the most of your time in East African is to have a Safari and a Beach holiday thereafter. There are many multi-center holidays or honeymoon packages but none comes close to a Kenya – Zanzibar holiday combo.
This exciting holiday combo will allow you to soak up the best of the Kenyan wild with a Masai Mara Safari and Zanzibar, home to beautiful virgin white-sand beaches with sapphire waters. This Kenya and Zanzibar safari holiday package sets the perfect backdrop for romance.
Best time to Holiday in Zanzibar
Zanzibar’s dry season, which lasts from July to September, is the choice time for travel. In reality, clear skies, warm weather, and plenty of sunshine will accompany your stay, and make every visit to the beach one to remember. The dry season is characterized by temperatures that stay close to a perfect 27 degrees Celsius, while the rainy months are just a bit warmer, topping off at around 30 degrees. If heat is a worry, rest assured that the soothing sea breeze will always be around to keep you cool.
If you would rather avoid peak tourism times, the ‘rainy’ season in Zanzibar brings daily short showers in November, which typically last long enough to cool you off from a day of sunbathing before quickly dispersing. The ‘green season’ of April and May brings comparatively longer showers which are rarer and marked by temperatures that drop down to a pleasant 25 degrees Celsius. Above all, this is the period when you will get some of the best deals, cost-wise.
Zanzibar, The Honeymoon Destination
Zanzibar honeymoon packages are available to make unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime. What makes for a better honeymoon destination than your private little spot on the beach that affords all the peace you could ask for? Nothing is more romantic than day-long walks down the sandy shores and intimate meals shared over candlelight.
A selection of local and international cuisine will offer plenty of dining options to share with your special someone. As a key hub in the spice trade, the smell of clove and nutmeg will be everywhere you turn, and bring some of the freshest flavors to your meals.
Flights to Zanzibar
How to get to Zanzibar is an equally important question we need to answer. People from all around the world make their way to Zanzibar; whether you are coming from Kenya or South Africa, the United Kingdom, or anywhere else, the destination will be well worth the trip. Flights from London start at $950 and can take you to your island getaway within 15 hours.
Take a quick trip from Nairobi, Kenya and in less than two hours and $250, you can be walking the sun-drenched beaches included in one of many Zanzibar holiday packages. Zanzibar also sees its share of flights coming in from Abu Dhabi and other major cities in the UAE. At just over $400, it makes an attractive option for couples looking for a bit of time together.

Is Zanzibar safe?
When traveling internationally, generally speaking, safety should always be the first concern. So finding ways to keep yourself, your loved ones, and your property safe is a priority. Coupled with its beauty, luckily Zanzibar has a good reputation when it comes to safety for its visitors. Because the islands benefit so much from tourism, the local population is always ready to lend a helping hand or a welcoming smile to those who stop by. Resorts and hotels are made to cater to your needs, and always ensure an environment of security and comfort.
When traveling within the country, different ferries and taxis provide a safe and reliable way to get from place to place. Just like any country, it might not be the best idea to spend too much time in isolated alleyways during night time but on the whole many visitors feel safer exploring the streets and beaches in Zanzibar than they do in their home country.
So is Zanzibar Safe? Yes, very safe. See: How to Stay Safe in Zanzibar.
Nightlife in Zanzibar
What many might not expect about Zanzibar is the vibrant nightlife that exists around every corner. The image of quiet candlelit dinners on the beach is certainly a reality, but when it comes time to experience what the city has to offer, you will never be in short supply of new places to look. From time to time while in Zanzibar you will spot a beach bonfire inviting you to the party. Ultimately, try the Stone Town food market, which occupies the park in front of the Sultan’s palace. Dozens of local food vendors will be offering truly authentic flavors — be sure to try some freshly-made sugar cane juice and grilled squid.
If you are looking for a place to let loose, just follow the sound of the reggae beat to one of the many dance clubs that come alive after sundown. It is a great place to get to meet locals, and people from all over the world in a setting that anyone can appreciate. And whether you want to stop here or at one of the bars throughout the city, you won’t have to worry much about your wallet, as the local prices of beer, food, and entertainment are low enough to accommodate any budget.
Visit Paradise Beach to experience one of the nightly parties they throw, which will allow you to enjoy yourself in a completely different setting. With a drink in hand and the sand between your toes, letting loose and having a great time will never be so easy. The truth is, finding plenty of options for entertainment after sundown will never be a hassle in Zanzibar, with all of the exciting choices so close at hand.
Vaccinations needed for a Zanzibar Holiday
Experienced international travelers will be able to tell you about the importance of vaccinations when entering and leaving a foreign country. Catching one of the local strains during travel is relatively uncommon, but only because the centers of disease control and prevention keep tight control over the medical history of those traveling. Zanzibar only requires vaccination for yellow fever upon entering the county, and sorting that out well before leaving is ideal.
Hepatitis A and typhoid vaccines are not required to enter the country of Tanzania but are a good idea for most travelers because of the presence of these diseases within the country. Hepatitis B, malaria, and rabies are less common but are recommended to some travelers.
In general, keeping updated on your yearly flu shot, MMR shot, tetanus-pertussis vaccine and any of the other common vaccines is always a good idea when traveling to any destination. General advice about eating and drinking safely, preventing bug bites, keeping out of contact with animals, and knowing how to get medical care while traveling all come into play to keep healthy while overseas. Coming into contact with new people and places always carries the risk of infection, and staying safe is better than being sorry.
Things to do in Zanzibar while on Holiday
If there is anything worth checking out in the area, the House of Wonders Zanzibar makes the list. The tallest building in the capital of Stone Town, this museum houses some of the rarest and most interesting artifacts that belong to Zanzibar history. With traditional ships, Zanzibar fishing tools, as well as ceremonial clothing and items from the Sultan’s palace, the House of Wonders is truly the place to begin when hoping to learn about the local culture.
After your initial introduction, you will be ready to explore the winding streets of Stone Town. Ancient Islamic architecture is around every corner, and it won’t take an expert eye to appreciate its beauty. Hearing daily prayer calls come down from the mosque, and mingling with the ever-present scent of cinnamon and clove will make it easy to lose yourself in the endless pleasures. Just make sure to bring your Zanzibar map!
If getting in touch with nature is more your style, try out an early morning dolphin safari. Take a speedboat out over the clear waters and spend time with the local wildlife, who will often be friendly enough to return the kindness! If you would rather get more up-close and personal, diving in Pemba will let you get a first-hand experience of the corals, the fish, and the many other creatures that call the ocean their home.
For the land-lovers among us, Jozani forest tours offer a chance to see some of the world’s most diverse collection of wildlife within a truly natural setting. Exotic and colorful birds will fly overhead singing unique melodies, and curious Red Colobus Monkeys will often be eager enough to pay a visit. Just don’t try feeding them or you may end up with a few new friends!

Getting your Zanzibar Holiday Visa
Those entering the country of Tanzania are required to present a passport and visa each time they enter the republic. The visa is a way for the country to pre-approve visitors to their land, through the assignment of an official document. As with all of your other preparations, getting your visa paperwork sorted out long before your trip is always the best course of action, to make sure everything goes smoothly during your trip.
You can get your visa while abroad at the Diplomatic or Consulate Mission of the United Republic of Tanzania. It usually only takes a single business day, though obtaining a visa last minute in this way is advised against, to avoid any problems entering the country.
In conclusion, when planing to book your Zanzibar trip, make your booking early to get the right hotel of choice.
