about Zanzibar.

Zanzibar consists of a group of islands located in the Indian Ocean from the eastern side of the continent of Africa, and Zanzibar refers to an Arabic term composed of two sections of negro and land, meaning the land of the Negro race, the human race living in Africa.

The Zanzibar Islands are also called Angoja in the local Swahili language of indigenous islanders, and the Zanzibar Island Group is officially traced to the State of Tanzania in East Africa, but it has semi-autonomous autonomy.

Zanzibar is a group of 52 islands, the largest of which is Zanzibar, followed by Bemba Island and other well-known islands such as the Mafia Island and Tumbatu.

Zanzibar is renowned for growing and producing cloves, with statistics indicating that there are more than 4 million carnation trees, making Zanzibar the world's leading source and producer of cloves.

Zanzibar has a unique population structure consisting of a large proportion of Arabs, Africans and Indians, with a population of 1 million in the Zanzibar Islands, 98% of whom convert to Islam and the rest of the population convert to Christianity and Sikhism.

To earn their living, Zanzibar people depend on agriculture. Coconuts and cloves are among the most important crops produced by the people of the islands. In addition, they work in fishing and the tourism sector, which is an important source of the country's economy.

The best time to visit Zanzibar. 

Visit Zanzibar from January to July If you don't mind the heat and humidity, this is the perfect time to visit Zanzibar. The day is sunny and hot. January to March offer the best diving conditions. A good underwater dive is wind, tide and whatever you see underwater. Lagoons and reefs can be explored in clear waters, especially on the south coast. The weather in Zanzibar starts to change around mid-March when the 'long rains' approach. April and May mark the beginning of the so-called 'long rains' on these islands. Precipitation in April and May is much higher than at any other time of the year, and the beaches are calm and very wet. If you want to enjoy the best weather Zanzibar has to offer, now is not the right time to visit.

A dream African beach vacation usually includes sun-drenched coastlines, palm-fringed beaches, and stunning sunsets. All of this can be expected from Zanzibar's luxury resorts during the dry season. June to October, when the heavy rains have stopped, is the best time to travel to Zanzibar. These weather conditions are probably perfect for a romantic honeymoon in Zanzibar to relax in the sun and explore the stunning scenery of the 'Spice Island'.

Travel to Zanzibar from August to October August is one of the last months of cool weather in the archipelago. From August to October, Zanzibar's weather is neither too hot nor too humid. A steady, gentle breeze blows from the south as the islands warm up into the summer.

September is a great month all over Zanzibar, but the Mafia Archipelago has something special. Sea turtle hatching and incredible diving conditions in deeper waters. Diving enthusiasts should plan their September dives carefully. October is an ideal time to visit Zanzibar. Days consist of cool breezes, calm seas and clear skies. Just before the November rains start, the water temperature starts to rise and the nights gradually get warmer.

Visit Zanzibar in November and December The 'short rains' expected in November, when temperatures usually soar, beat the dry mid-winter. Clouds typically build up in the morning (which can be quite sunny and humid), giving way to spectacular but generally brief showers in the afternoon. It gives you plenty of time to relax at the beach bar or enjoy a massage or yoga session. before returning to the sun lounger.

However, the sun is stronger on Christmas and New Year's Eve. The Mafia Archipelago is her go-to place in Zanzibar in December, as the biggest highlight is the chance to dive with whale sharks

What is the culture of Zanzibar like?

The Zanzibari people are descendants of Africa, Arabia, India, Persia and the Comoros Islands. The main religion in Zanzibar is Islam. Over 90% of the population is Muslim with a small minority of Christians, Hindus, Jains and Sikhs.

Swahili and Arabic influences are evident throughout the islands, especially at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of old Stone Town. The unique blend of African, Arabic and European historical influences has shaped Zanzibar's intriguing contemporary cultural and architectural landscape. Remnants of Zanzibar's sinister past, as the main slave-trading port in East Africa between the 17th and 19th Centuries, also remain.

Can I wear shorts in Zanzibar?

You can wear shorts at the beach and your resort or hotel. It's acceptable to wear bikinis and swimwear at the beach.

In other places, it is better to dress more conservatively. Shorts should preferably be loose-fitting, three-quarter pants that end below the knee. Ladies should avoid wearing short shorts in public.

Walking around shirtless is not culturally acceptable, even for blokes. For women, wearing mini-skirts and skimpy outfits is sure to cause offence. Be particularly mindful when visiting Stone Town and mosques, where your torso and shoulders need to be covered too
