Being close to the equator, Zanzibar has warm near-perfect holiday weather all year round. Seasonal winds providing a cooling breeze during the summer months.

The rainy season (or 'Green Season') normally occurs between April and May. There are likely to be short sharp bursts of rain on several days per week. Many of the smaller properties opt to close to conduct repairs whilst the larger properties offer fantastic discounted rates and upgrades to guests.
