Coast and Islands in Tanzania

Mainland Tanzania has a long and largely undeveloped coastline with just a few of the stunning beaches developed for tourists.

Their exotic palm fringed coral beaches and Swahili culture will complement your safari perfectly.

Zanzibar is by far the most heavily developed destination with accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. Famous for once being the commercial centre of East Africa and the last place to abolish the slave trade, today it combines ancient Islamic ruins, noble Arabic houses with miles of white, sandy, palm fringed beaches and coves.

DRY SEASON

July to October are a nice time to visit the coast and the Islands of Zanzibar, Mafia and Pemba although unlike most of the more temperate inland safari regions the climate is tropical and occasional showers are possible at any time of year.

The dry summer months between December and February are also a great time to visit and conditions are particularly good for scuba diving.

green SEASON

The main rainy season runs from Mid March through to early June and we normally advise against a beach holiday at this time as the monsoon winds and rains can make conditions unpleasant.

SHOULDER SEASON

In these months there may be a bit more rain but hotel prices are usually lower and most guests will find the climate quite pleasant
