We see heavy rains in the middle of the desert, and harmful droughts when it should rain.

Just south of the equator, Zanzibar's weather is very similar to that of Tanzania, although it is always slightly damp, although occasional rain during the dry season is not as uncommon as it is in central Tanzania. .

Generally, the main rainy season or "long rain" he lasts in March, April and May. Afternoon tropical downpours are the norm. This can get intense on any island. Humidity is high and daytime temperatures reach the low 30s.

June, July, August, September and October are followed by a long dry season with rather rare rains. Temperatures vary greatly by altitude and location, but clear skies and sunny days are usually the best time to visit Zanzibar. There is another rainy season in November and December.

"light rain". These are much lighter than the main rain and are less reliable.

If it rains during the short rainy season, it usually dries up for several months in January and he in February. This is Tanzania's 'short dry season', after which the rains begin in earnest in March.
