Experience Boat Tours in Zanzibar

Best things to do in Zanzibar: The East African island has plenty of experiences to immerse yourself in, along with your boat tour. Jozani Forest is one of the island's most popular places. Look out for the red colobus monkey. Oh, and just be sure to stick to the trails. Stone Town is an essential place to go. Visit the Palace of Wonders, next to the old fort. Another place, a short boat trip away is Prison Island. A place once served for holding slaves and is a fascinating area to explore. The tortoise sanctuary is also well worth seeing.

When to visit Zanzibar: You’ll want to head to Zanzibar when the dry season has arrived. That’s usually between July and September. However, most times of the year are just as good as the temperatures are between 28c and 34c, with plenty of sunshine.

How safe is Zanzibar: Like most countries, the main thing to remember is to be careful with your belongings. Don’t leave things unguarded, and secure your passport and money. Otherwise, you’ll find Zanzibar is a safe place to travel and explore.
