WEATHER

As this is the Southern Hemisphere, November and December is the beginning of the summer months. Temperatures can vary hugely with altitude and location, but it’s usually a fine, clear sky and sunny weather – it’s a great time to visit Zanzibar.

In these months, there’s another rainy season: the ‘short rains’. These are much lighter than the main rains and less reliable — light showers in the mornings and late afternoons, punctuated by stretches of clear weather and beautiful rays of sunlight. The beginning of both rainy seasons is marked by a change in the winds which, historically, marked the time for trading boats to set off.
