  9. Pemba Island to Zanzibar


Zanzibar is one of those names, along with Timbuktu, Kilimanjaro, and Marrakech, that evokes fantastic, exotic visions of scenes from the Arabian Nights filled with dhows, spices, and jewels in addition to darker tales of traders and explorers on the lookout for elephants, gold, power, and slaves.

Unguja and Pemba Islands, as well as a few islets,  comprise the island of Zanzibar. It is located 6° south of the equator in the Indian Ocean, about 25 miles inland from Tanzania’s coast. The island of Zanzibar, also known as Unguja locally but more commonly referred to as Zanzibar globally, is 60 miles long and 20 miles wide, covering a total area of about 650 square miles. Stunning sandy beaches distinguish it with coral reefs that border them as well as the mystique of historic Stone Settlement, which is thought to be the only surviving ancient town in East Africa.

Breathtaking historical sites can be found in Zanzibar. Zanzibar’s Spice Islands have long served as a gathering place for travelers, merchants, and, more recently, backpackers. But thanks to a recent influx of five-star resorts, the Tanzanian island is starting to entice tourists.

Zanzibar is delighted to have art galleries as well. The Dr. Bulungu Gallery, The Beautiful Eyes, and Hurumzi Henns Art Gallery are among the places art enthusiasts can visit. You can read about Zanzibar’s culture, beauty, people, and outlook on the world in the gallery.

The best time to visit Zanzibar.

The climate of Zanzibar is tropical, with two dry seasons and two wet seasons. From 29 degrees Celsius in the summer to 21 degrees Celsius in the winter, on average, are the temperatures. The island experiences a hot and humid dry season in January and February, and a cold, dry season from June to October. When it comes to the rainy seasons, the long rains fall from March to June while the short rains occur in November and December. Due to ideal viewing conditions in Tanzania’s wildlife reserves, the months of June through October are regarded as the finest for beach and vacation safaris. If you want to experience the lively holiday mood and enjoy mild weather, the winter months (June to October) are also a terrific time to visit. Scuba diving is also quite good during these months. The ideal time to travel to Zanzibar for cheap flights is from March to May.

Flight Distance and Time

Due to its long stretch of white sand beaches, gorgeous scenery, and exciting water activities, Zanzibar makes for an ideal vacation spot. In the air, the distance between Zanzibar and Pemba   is just 141 kilometers and 30 minutes.

Tips for Airports and Transportation

Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, often known as Zanzibar International Airport, is where most flights from Pemba to Zanzibar land. Unguja Island, about 7 kilometers south of Zanzibar’s city center, is home to the main airport for the island. The airport has two separate terminals for domestic and international travelers. At the terminal, you can order for a taxi to take you to the city center or your accommodation. You can either pre-arrange transportation from the airport to your lodging or take a cab. This island has a wide range of beachfront resorts and five-star hotels, and each one provides opulent lodging with breathtaking ocean views—exactly what you need to unwind after a day of sightseeing. A journey to Zanzibar would be incomplete without visiting the Old Fort, the Hamamni Persian Baths, and the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre.
