Peak season:

Zanzibar experiences year-round warm and pleasant weather, but the peak season runs from March through May. During the ‘summer’ months, Zanzibar receives most of its rains, but as it is the hottest time of the year, tourists flock here for island escapes during the peak season. The resorts in Zanzibar can be fully booked during the peak season, so to avoid the risk of overpaying for late bookings or not finding availability, make sure that you book your cheap Zanzibar getaway well in advance.

Off season:

June through October is when Zanzibar receives its coldest weather (although temperatures don’t drop below 20°C). Hence this is the archipelago’s off season with regards to tourism. You might be able to find cheap flight deals to Zanzibar during the dry, colder months, but as with the peak season, be sure to book well in advance to ensure availability.

When is the best time to book a flight to Zanzibar?

Seeing that Zanzibar has year-round pleasant weather, there isn’t a wrong time to fly here. You might want to consider booking your cheap flights to Zanzibar three months in advance and have them coincide with the off season, between June and October. Booking your flight tickets to Zanzibar before the onset of the low tourism season will likely see you pay less for airfare and will also allow you to enjoy the landscapes amongst thinner tourist crowds.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Zanzibar?

At the moment, Wednesday is the most economical day to take a flight to Zanzibar. Saturday is likely to be the most costly.

There’s a wild call of nature found in Zanzibar, and it’s not hard to understand why. With its unsurpassed natural beauty, entrancing and exotic cultural displays, and a vibe that cannot be found anywhere else on earth, Zanzibar is a destination that sells itself, and one that may very well steal your heart for good.
