One of the main curiosities of those who are preparing to go on a vacation, whether they’ve already chosen the destination or are about to decide, has to do with the weather in the respective place. We refer both to the average monthly temperatures, which can make them opt for one period or another, as well as the forecast for the period they’ve already booked so that they know what clothes to pack in their luggage. Fortunately, there are places on Earth for which this information is not so important, as the values in the thermometers are high all year round.

This is the case with our beautiful island in the Indian Ocean, located east of Tanzania, to which it belongs de facto. Therefore, the weather in Zanzibar is always perfect for sunbathing, as well as various other activities under the sun, such as swimming, snorkeling, fishing, safaris, and guided walking tours. By reading this article further, you’ll be able to find out various statistical information about the atmospheric and water temperatures in this superb tourist destination, which will surprise you extremely pleasantly. If you’re wondering why it is “colder” in July and August than in January and February, the answer is simple: we are located a little below the line of the Equator, which means that here is “winter” when in Europe it’s summer, and vice versa!

But actually, any interval is perfect for a vacation in the “pearl” of the Indian Ocean, as the weather values are relatively constant. We are waiting for you!
