Why book a Zanzibar package with Dream World Adventures?

Why book a Zanzibar package through a specialist tour operator like ourselves, which includes your return flights, accommodation on Zanzibar and airport to hotel transfers, you may ask? These days it is just so easy to book each of the package components directly with the airlines and hotels. Our explanation here below will have you see the benefits of such a choice.
We receive significant discounts from our preferred suppliers on Zanzibar that we then in turn package together with the remaining travel components in order to offer you our Zanzibar specials. If you book your travel package components separately and in the event that your flight is delayed, you will need to try and contact the hotel and/or the transfer company to update them with the changes. Communication on Zanzibar is often not as easy as what you may be accustomed to, so it may prove challenging.

We have personally visited Zanzibar Island on many occasions in the past, stayed and visited most of the best hotels on Zanzibar that includes My Blue Hotel, few other travel consultants are able to say the same!

What if you need to change your itinerary due to an unforeseen personal problem? Instead of speaking to one person to make things quick and easy, you again will need to contact people that do not offer a 24 hour emergency contact number!

Zanzibar holiday packages

The transformation of Zanzibar since 1993 has been astonishing, first being a purely adventure destination to what is available today.
Zanzibar has undergone an unbelievable transformation since 1993, when it was first a purely adventure destination to being a destination that is today a paradise for travellers.
The island of Zanzibar is no longer just for adventure seekers looking for a rustic environment and amazing scuba diving.
Zanzibar’s beach resorts are becoming increasingly popular with international hotel brands, increasing the level of service and quality of accommodation available to guests. More families and young couples are now enjoying their holidays or honeymooning on the island.

We at Dream World Adventures are constantly reviewing the list of hotels on Zanzibar, and by doing so we can provide our clients with a shortlist of hotels that keep them longing to go back.
Our criteria include, but is not limited to, location on the island, service provided to guests, and affordability.
We don’t offer cheap packages that provide us with short-term rewards.
To have our clients return to us for future vacations and adventures, we work hard to provide incredible experiences at an affordable price.

When is the best time to go to Zanzibar?

Although it is always asked by our clients, providing a quick answer is more difficult than it appears.
In Zanzibar, any time of year is a good time to visit. Due to its proximity to the equator, the climate is perpetually warm and tropical, without the defined winter and summer months we are accustomed to.
The answer depends on several unique factors, most of which are influenced by the needs of each individual traveller.

The answer is very straight forward if you are looking for a Zanzibar special holiday package that will allow you to stay at the most affordable price.
When booking your Zanzibar holiday, allow yourself 3 to 6 months between booking and departure.
This will save you money on airfare, enable you to qualify for early booking discounts, and ensure you get the best deal on Zanzibar resorts.
Travel insurance is essential if you are worried about unforeseen events affecting your trip in the future.
When possible, avoid traveling during school and public holidays. However, if you must travel during these dates, make your bookings 6 months in advance.

Rest assured that Zanzibar offers a warm tropical climate, regardless of the weather.
It is normal for tropical rain to fall all year round, usually in short bursts, and is most often welcomed relief from the hot weather.
Climate change has sadly affected all places on earth, including Zanzibar.
As a result, we cannot predict the normal patterns, as was the case when I started to promoted Zanzibar in the early 1990s.
Being a popular topic on the internet, many different opinions will be available when doing a search.
Sadly, the days are gone of being able to base your holiday plans purely on historical data.

In comparison with other tropical islands, Zanzibar has mostly been spared the worst of the tropical storms so far.

Is Zanzibar or Mauritius more expensive?

Zanzibar opened its boarders to South African passport holders in 1993, and since then, it has offered more affordable hotels and beach resorts compared to Mauritius and other tropical Island destination.

How many flying hours is it from South Africa to Zanzibar?

If booking a flight to Zanzibar, that fly direct between Johannesburg and Zanzibar, the average flight time will be around 3 hours and 25 minutes.
Direct flights to Zanzibar are currently limited to one flight per week.

Alternative flights currently available will have you fly from Johannesburg to Zanzibar via Nairobi in Kenya, or via Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.
While the above alternative flight schedules are available on a daily based, the average flight time will be around 6 hours via Nairobi and 12 hours via Addis Ababa.

Do South Africans need visa for Zanzibar?

South African passport holders are currently exempted from visa formalities.
A valid passport is however still required.
In order to be considered valid, a passport must contain at least two open pages next to each other and remain valid for at least six months after the return date of the traveler.
Failing this a traveller will be prohibited from leaving the South African borders.

How many days in Zanzibar is enough?

There are many people looking to save by booking short stays on Zanzibar, but we would like to suggest you take a closer look at these factors.
In spite of the fact that you may save a little money by shortening your stay, airfares and airport transfers will not change.
Your time flying and road transfer time between Zanzibar Airport and your beach resort will remain the same, so you are only sacrificing more time to relax at the pool and on the beach, if booking short stays.
It is common for travellers to experience travel fatigue, so if you spend your first day siesta-ing, you are denying yourself the opportunity to experience Zanzibar’s wonders.
It has been our experience that a stay of 7 nights is the ideal length of time.
Also, important to make mention, resorts offer long-stay specials that allow you to stay for 7 nights and only pay for 6, making a 7 night stay the best to consider.

What time of year is the most affordable time to visit Zanzibar?

Traveling outside of high demand periods, for example Festive season, School & public holidays, will have you save allot of money.
Many travellers from Europe also prefer to travel when they experience cold winter climates, so avoiding August, September or January and February will also contribute to your savings.

Why is Zanzibar so famous as a travel destination?

Known for its idyllic beaches, great weather, and warm tropical waters, Zanzibar’s beaches draw visitors from around the world.

In Zanzibar, you will find some of the world’s most beautiful diving sites and warm waters, making it a popular destination for diving enthusiasts.

In addition to its fine beaches, Zanzibar is also home to a wide variety of fauna and flora, including the Jozani Forest.

A unique culture, history, and architecture can be found on the Island. Embark on a trip on a traditional hand-crafted wooden dhow – a remnant of the trading history of the area and still used for transport and fishing today.

Due to the farming and processing of aromatic spices such as cloves, turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemongrass and black pepper on Zanzibar Island, it is known as the Spice Island.

Travelers to Zanzibar can enjoy a romantic getaway, an ideal destination for couples searching for a little spice in life.

Many visitors to the island are attracted by the traditional local markets found in Stone Town, the oldest functioning town in East Africa.

It is largely due to the friendly and helpful nature of Zanzibar’s local people that people keep coming back to the island.

What language is spoken in Zanzibar?

In Zanzibar, Swahili (also called Kiswahili) is the most widely spoken language.
English and several other European languages are spoken in tourist areas and resorts.

What part of Zanzibar is best to stay?

Paje Beach, located on the southeast coast of Zanzibar, is best known for its kitesurfing and diving. It is renowned for its sand, palm trees swaying in the wind, and gorgeous sunsets.

Bwejuu Beach, located on the southeast coast of Zanzibar, is best known for relaxation.
The white sand beach, lined with palm trees, is about 90 minutes from Stone Town.

Nungwi Beach, located on the northwest coast of Zanzibar, is one of the island’s most beautiful and popular beaches.
This beach is one of the island’s liveliest areas, with a diverse range of night time entertainment provided by several beach resorts, restaurants, and bars.
It also features some of Zanzibar’s spectacular sunsets, making a sunset tour on a traditional dhow sailing boat a highlight not to be missed.

Kendwa Beach, located on the northwest coast of Zanzibar, is one of the best swimming beaches on Zanzibar. The tides at this beach do not affect the beach at all.

There are numerous other fantastic beaches on Zanzibar, making it worthwhile to explore all the Island has to offer.

If traveling on flights via another destination, check the destination requirements as that will determent the possible need to be vaccinated.

Important to take note that above information was correct at the time it was updated in March 2023.
Travel regulations are constantly been updated it may change in the future.

Do I need malaria tablets for Zanzibar?

As is the case in many places in Africa and on tropical islands, preventative measures should be taken against malaria when travelling to Zanzibar.
Consulting with your physician is recommended for medical advice on malaria prophylactics that are safe for you to use. Your closest travel clinic will also be able to provide you with medical advice.
It is advisable to take a mosquito repellent and to cover all exposed areas of your body (e.g. neck and arms) during dusk and at night time. Wearing light-coloured trousers and long-sleeved shirts can also reduce the risk. Studies have found that the malaria mosquito is mostly active at night or in dark areas.

Important to note – the above information should not be taken as medical advice since only qualified physicians are by law able to provide this after doing a medical examination and reviewing your personal medical history.

Is Covid 19 test required for Zanzibar?

Zanzibar has recently dropped all Covid-19 entry requirements, however do recommend travellers to be fully vaccinated.
Travellers are no longer required to present a Covid-19 vaccination certificate or negative PCR test, or perform Rapid Antigen Tests on arrival unless state otherwise by conveyance to be used or country of final destination. However, for surveillance purposes, Port Health Officers may at any time perform Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test, free of charge, for randomly selected travellers upon arrival at the point of entry.
South Africa no longer has any Covid-19 travel requirements for exiting or entering the county.

Important to take note that above information was correct at the time it was updated in March 2023.
Travel regulations are constantly been updated it may change in the future.

What to do if unexpected problems arise on your Zanzibar trip?

Dream World Adventures provides all our valued clients with a 24 hour emergency contact person, that be able to provide you with professional advice and in most cases solve the problem on the spot.
We also highly recommend travel insurance to be taken out on the day that you book your holiday.
Travel insurance is the best way to ensure that you will be covered for those unforeseen problems that sometimes can happen while travelling in another country. We highly recommend that you ensure that you have adequate travel insurance cover for your trip to Zanzibar.
Very few travellers take the time to research this important aspect of travel that is available at affordable prices – compared to the benefits it offers. The cost of travel insurance does not relate to the value of the trip, but rather depends on the duration of the journey, age of the traveller and level of cover required.
Most seasoned travellers will agree that flight delays and lost luggage are always possible, although airlines do their best to minimize any inconvenience! Having comprehensive travel insurance is best to lessen the impact these unfortunate events will have on your holiday plans.
